    Lance Armstrong has at least a couple of angry readers on his hands.

    E! News has obtained a class action lawsuit filed against the disgraced cyclist by two men who had purchased and read Armstrong's books, It's Not About the Bike and Every Second Counts.

    The suit states that they "would not have purchased the books had they known the true facts concerning Armstrong's misconduct and his admitted involvement in a sports doping scandal."

    It also accuses Armstrong and several publishers of fraud and false advertising. After all, in the books, Armstrong denied ever using banned substances.

    The complaint comes just days after Oprah Winfrey's interview with Armstrong aired, during which he finally did confess to using performance-enhancing drugs during his Tour de France victories. He blamed his "ruthless desire to win at all costs" for leading him to cheat and attempt to cover up his lies for so many years.
