Daniel Pennac’s ‘The Rights of the Reader’

Just because it is nice to be reminded…

1. The right not to read.
2. The right to skip.
3. The right not to finish a book.
4. The right to read it again.
5 The right to read anything.
6. The right to mistake a book for real life.
7. The right to read anywhere.
8. The right to dip in.
9. The right to read out loud.
10. The right to be quiet.
from ‘The Rights of the Reader’ by Daniel Pennac. translated by Sarah Adams (Walker Books, London, 2006)
