Readers’ Bill of Rights

I found this recently at Sally’s Books and Musings Down Under and liked the idea, so I have transplanted it here. Sally offers credit to Daniel Pennac.

I 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

I would like to add an extra point,

11.   The Right to Read the Last Few Pages First

More on my habit of skipping to the end of a book later. Any other reading rights that should be added to the list?
