The Rights of the Reader

This list was written by French author Daniel Pennac. I found it from Gretchen Rubin’s website.

  1. The right not to read.
  2. The right to skip.
  3. The right not to finish a book.
  4. The right to re-read.
  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 silent.

Enjoy.
