Reader’s Bill of Rights

If you’ve never seen this before its the Reader’s Bill of Rights written by Daniel Pennac. Readers sometimes feel bad that they’re in a slump or don’t want to read a book they’ve started, but feel like they have to. I particularly adhere to rule 2 & 3.

The Reader’s Bill of Rights states that readers have:

1. The right to not read.

2. The right to skip pages.

3. The right to not finish.

4. The right to reread.

5. The right to read anything.

6. The right to escapism.

7. The right to read anywhere.

8. The right to browse.

9. The right to read out loud.

10. The right to not defend your tastes.
