‘I Hate Reading’ Facebook Page Gets Official AbeBooks Video Reply

Last week we uncovered the “I Hate Reading” page on Facebook, a sad page with more than 442,500 likes on the popular social networking site.

Above, we’ve embedded an official video response from AbeBooks. What do you think?

Check it out: “Somebody should set up the ‘I Hate the I Hate Reading Page’ page on Facebook. (I know hate is a strong word and my mother told me never to use it, but they started this – although I like to think these people just haven’t found the right book yet.) Here is the official AbeBooks.com reply to the ‘We Hate Reading’ Facebook page – it’s a video entitled Long Live the Book created by Lindsay Thompson. We love this video and Lindsay did an amazing job – she even wrote and performed the soundtrack. We love reading, we love books.”
