The Rights of The Reader


You can click on the imag to see a larger version, I think.

If you are having problems reading, here are The 10 Rights of The Reader:

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.

10 rights -- 1 warning: Don't make fun of people who don't read -- or they never will.

[I am posting this because of late some blogger friends and I have been discussing the reading habits of our children.]

A good thoughtful list of rights. Maybe (9. The right to read out loud) is debatable, because it may infringe other's rights to silence ;)

cheers,
