Charlie Joe Jackson may be the most reluctant reader ever born. And so far, he's managed to get through life without ever reading an entire book from cover to cover. But now that he's in middle school, avoiding reading isn't as easy as it used to be. And when his friend Timmy McGibney decides that he's tired of covering for him, Charlie Joe finds himself resorting to desperate measures to keep his perfect record intact.

Charlie Joe Jackson's Guide to Not Reading by Tommy Greenwald is the hilarious story of an avid non-reader and the extreme lengths to which he'll go to get out of reading a book.

                    I really enjoyed this book and recommend to everyone, bookworm or not. It is about the famous character Charlie Joe as he attempts to avoid reading in middle school, but when his best friend refuses to cover for him, Charlie is submerged in a world of despair.

                      This book is pretty good. It is about a kid name Charlie Joe Jackson who absolutely hates reading. I enjoyed this book because I can see how people, who don't like books think like.
