Victoria Beckham is furious over reports she's never read a book, insisting she does read them - just not to the end.

The former SPICE GIRL, who has three sons with Real Madrid soccer sensation David Beckham, claims she was misquoted by a Spanish magazine, insisting her hectic lifestyle means she rarely manages to finish books.

She says, "Just recently there was all this nonsense about how I've never read a book. It was an interview I did for a Spanish magazine, and what I said was that I never seem to finish books.

"I always start them, get distracted, and never seem to get the time to finish - I'm sure all mothers with three boys know what I mean.

"And as for all those cynics who say I'm jeopardising my boys' future knowledge, don't be so ridiculous. Of course we read books together.

"(Sons) ROMEO and Brooklyn both love reading stories, and as they are both starting to pick up basic Spanish words, they both have some Spanish books as well."
