My name is Charlie Joe Jackson, and I hate reading. And if you're reading this book, you hate reading, too.
In fact, you do whatever you can to avoid reading, and the fact that you're holding a book in your hand right now is kind of shocking.
I know exactly how you feel; I'm one of you.
Just remember: you are not alone. We'll get through this together.
