Ten Rules to Read By
Walker UK is bringing back Daniel Pennac's The Rights of the Reader, and I hope it will make its way over here, too. Walter Mayes gave me a copy years ago that seems to have gone astray, but I've not forgotten its maxims (at least in my private life!), including "the right not to finish a book" and "the right to skip." You can see Pennac's ten rights, deftly illustrated by Quentin Blake, on a downloadable poster from Walker.
