The Rights of A Reader

There are a handful of books which are genius but it’s an inevitable and inescapable fact that not all books are not great. In fact some aren’t even good and a few venture into that tasteless category known as bad. And a precious minority goes as far as the ‘MY-EYES-ARE-GOING-TO-BLIND-THEMSELVES’ category. In the attempt to protect readers everywhere from this  highly dangerous and volatile minority and to protect themselves from the cunning whiles of such books masquerading as repectable book denizens, A Reader’s bill of Rights has been written. Under it, each reader has

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”
