    “Man builds houses because it is alive, but writes books because it is known mortal. He lives in a group because it is gregarious, but read because he knows himself.” Daniel Pennac

    There are many habits that are considered of little or deplorable and others applauded by others, elevated to a kind of success in life and deserve to be presumed. One of the latter is undoubtedly reading. Reading can be one of the most appreciated and praised habits of people . Something like a star on the forehead; an activity that, by itself, speech very well who holds, or presumed scores (the highest and most admirable) from its list of most cherished activities and rubs almost, almost the virtues

    However, reading, or at least what we mean by reading, and Case. must read , should be analyzed and understand well what we hold when we point this habit as a good point in our life; also which they suggest reading href=”” as sublime and intellectual activity to . that everyone should arrogate, or by those who dedicate their work to convert the illiterate children accomplished readers

    And many times we forget what Daniel Pennac says:

    The verb does not support the mandatory reading. Aversion it shares with other verbs: the verb “to love” … the word “dream” …

    And we in the verbose discourse (with its good dowry of citations) on the importance of reading; even more: how important reading . In that speech, almost longing to educate and enlighten the illiterate, pointing to pedagogy, educational programs, the future, as the fundamentals of the argument that almost few dare to refute: you should read . Is must because it is the only way to stop being gross, to move away from childish primitive language and worldview with which we are born. Is must read to polish the intellect, to enrich the lives and bind the soul to animals far more complex than our natural systems.

    in order. Read.

    But then, like fresh water, as if it were a big kick intellectualism swirling fun activity to read Daniel Pennac lists in his book ‘ As A Novel ‘, a Decalogue worth grant us know and remember to read and more fun on the version of reading a duty and an obligation (and how medal).

    The rights of readers

    • 1. The right not to read.
      “… reading” humanizes man “(…) avoid accompany this theorem with the corollary that any individual who does not read should be considered a priori a gross potential or stubborn jerk. Because if not, we will turn reading into a moral obligation, and this is the beginning of an escalation that will soon lead us to judge.

    • 2. The right to skip pages.
      Daniel Pennac insists that we are free to skip what you do not want to read, either because it is not our time or the overlooked importance of offering us the right to reject a topic or chapter to concentrate on the pure pleasure of reading what we like.

    • . 3. The right to not finish a book
      Undoubtedly one of the most controversial to this, Pennac says, “There are thirty-six thousand reasons to leave before the end of a novel: the feeling and read a story that we do not engage our total disapproval of the author’s thesis, a style that makes us the creeps, or conversely a lack of writing that is not compensated by any reason to move on … enumerate the remaining 35,995 useless. “

    • 4. . The right to reread
      wonderfully Pennac says what it means rereading: “Rereading is not repeated, to provide a new test of an indefatigable love So reread..” And when he says: “We reread free, for the pleasure of repetition, the joy of reunions, checking privacy.” So: we reread

    • . 5. The right to read anything.
      This law dictates that if the reader may well recognize “good” and “bad” books, all have the right to read what pleases, what ( oh, do not permit the wiseacres ) is fashionable. The taste of the reader is very important, but also important is giving us the opportunity to meet other topics and others.

    • 6. The right to bovarysme .
      The term bovarysme is aa Madame Bovary, the heroine of the novel by Flaubert, compulsive reader who mistakes him read with reality; novel, as well, which constantly check in hand “like a novel”. A bovarysme refers to have the right to indulge in easy cutting readings that turn away; reading Bestsellers , etc. Very linked to the previous law. We also said that if we combine those readings with authors more complex, it is likely that we stay with the latter because of its complexity allows you transcend time and not diluted .

    • 7. The right to read anywhere.
      Also remove prohibitions linked to the act of driving a book or ( please! , follow the pundits) to abuse, fold or href=”” writable. We must remove the stigma of reading a prodigious activity, and make it everywhere, be it bus, subway, waiting room, staircase, (yes, even in the bathroom).

    • 8. . The right to scroll
      Pennac says this: “I leaf through, we browsed, let them browse
      When you do not have neither the time nor the means to treat yourself with a week in Venice. Why deny the right to spend five minutes? “

    • 9. The right to read aloud.
      Yeah, well, that’s nice but now that already read quietly. That is, once tamed the caveman did not want to read now must be told how do; and this is almost like a manual of manners low, attentive, comfortable but not much voice to not fall asleep (secular activity if you have a book in their hands and says Pennac is one of the greatest pleasures that can give us the reading). Out manners, read aloud to enjoy the melody of the words:
      “We have no right to meddle in the mouth the words before clavárnoslas head no ear Already Already there? music? Are there no spittle? Do the words no longer have taste? “

    • 10. The right to remain silent.
      “Man builds houses because it is alive, but writes books because it is known mortal. He lives in a group because it is gregarious, but read only because it is known. (…) Our reasons for reading are so strange as our reasons to live. And nobody has powers to ask accounts this intimacy. “

    Reading “like a novel” very much worth it. It is touching and revealing; often leaves us standing on our presumed bad reading habit, which is, in any case, a personal and intimate habit .

    We often say that we have no time to read and up Pennac for this has a response:

    From the time the problem arises time to read, no one ever has time to read. Neither young nor old. Life is a permanent obstacle to reading.

    The time for reading is always taken time. (Like the time to write, on the other hand, the time for love.) Who has time to be in love? Have you ever seen, however, that a lover not find time to love? The reading does not depend on the organization of social time, it is, like love, a way of being.

    Finally, and also highly recommended, the Derechos children readers Francisco Hinojosa, based on those of Pennac and their own dimensions of the smallest. Hinojosa is always fun, do not pass them, or good, if you like: is your right
