Do you know the rights of a reader? The ten of them?

I love this visual and have it proudly displayed in my library.
It started with a book:
RIGHTS OF THE READER by Daniel Pennac, illustrated by Quentin Blake, 2007. "Humane, humorous and deeply felt, this is a unique book about reading."

About the authorDaniel Pennac is one of the most translated authors in France, with books including "Dog" and "Eye of the Wolf" appearing in more than thirty languages worldwide.Daniel Pennac is a French writer. He received the Prix Renaudot in 2007 for his essay Chagrin d'├ęcole. After studying in Nice he became a teacher. Wikipedia
