WAG literary taste

Aw: Sales of Harper Lee's 1960 novel To Kill A Mockingbird rose by 123% in the UK after David and Victoria Beckham named their new baby "Harper" in honor of the book, said to be Victoria's favorite.

Of course, Victoria made an infamous comment in 2005 that she'd never actually read a book (although she had written one), so I'm glad to hear that either A) she was joking*, or B) she's picked up a novel or two in the intervening years.

*Or her comment was mistranslated, or taken out of context, or something. But it couldn't really be true... right?
