About the Author
Beth Bacon loves to read and write-and laugh! She also enjoys hiking and traveling to new places. Beth earned an MFA in writing for Children and Young Adults from Vermont College of Fine Arts. Beth is the mom of Arthur and Henry Bacon and is thrilled to author this book with them.
Arthur Bacon was in the fourth grade when he wrote I Hate Reading. Back then, he liked to practice karate, build tree forts, and play computer games. These days he's in college, learning to create computer games. Today, he has to admit, he actually likes to read.
When he was in second grade, Henry Bacon found it quite a chore to read for 20 minutes every day, which was the rule at his elementary school. He wishes there were more books like this one-funny and realistic and not too hard to read. Henry enjoys swimming, telling jokes, and performing on stage.

The authors, Arthur and Ben Bacon as told to Beth Bacon is funny enough, but then (they) go on to tell us how to read. First, put your eyes on the book, second, put your butt down, and start reading. And, then, we learn all the ways to avoid reading, and believe me there are many. We hear stories by real people about how they avoid reading, and there are hints, most of them quite funny. I understand many people force themselves to sit and read for 20 minutes. So, please do, follow the advice in this book, and learn how to avoid reading while you read.
Now, it is assumed you know how to read, to read this book. This may be a big assumption, but we must move on. The illustrations in this book are actually part of the reading. Large words, colored words, words done in all sorts of fancy scribe. They are colorful, vivid and bright. And, they lend a great deal to this book. This is a book for everyone, some will think it is funny, some will think this is sad, but everyone should enjoy reading this book. That is the goal, afterall!
Oh, I loved this book, and guess what, I love to read!
