    Is it okay to include books that have been partially read as part of my personal statement (especially if I plan to reread these books by the time interviews are conducted)? Thanks!

    It's OK to read part of a book and talk about it, yes. But don't talk about bits you don't know about. If it is brought up at interview (if you have one) then be honest

    That depends on why you're mentioning it. If you read a section of a book and found it very inspiring then yes, that's fine as long as you explain what you found inspiring. But if you're just putting down a book to make your application sound more impressive and you just couldn't be bothered to read it, you're going to find yourself in a potentially sticky situation if it comes up in any interviews you're invited to.
