shin-bangNot too much work, I just can't stand the book.
Okay, serious post time. Sorry for being a weiner before.
Likely the teacher in charge of your education is better read, wiser, and smarter than you are. This, along with their teaching certifications, makes them qualified to tell you what to do. They're not doing it because they think it will bore you. They do it because they want you to get something from the activity.
In this case, that activity is reading, and the material is something you don't like. In this instance, you have two paths presented before you. The first is that you can trust your teacher and his/her judgement, suck it up and read the book, and try your best to learn from it. I can tell you from experience, some of the most important things you'll learn from are things that suck to read. It doesn't matter if you don't like it or not. That's no reason to not learn about or try something. If someone (qualified to do so) tells you to do something for your benefit, why would you say no based on something as trivial as "I don't wanna." That's whiny and wasteful.
The second is that you disregard your teacher's good intentions and hopes for your education and fake some bullshit because you don't have the nuts to stand up and say "I didn't read this." You'll be wasting your time and your teacher's time.
You clearly understand that you're expected to read this book because you're willing to fake work (big no-no IMO) in order to make it look like you did. However, realize that this is meant to help you, not punish you, and that you need to trust the planning, experience, and intentions of your teacher. There are plenty of reasons to question an instructor, but laziness or lack of interest are not included.
