Daniel Pennac is a French writer, with experience as a teacher in France. Several of his books have been best sellers and have sold millions of copies.
Reading for Pleasure is a priority as we know, but adults and children alike, can be put off reading for a number of reasons.
Daniel Pennac produced this ten point manifesto, which is included in his book by the same name. He believes there are ten rights that should be granted to all readers, including, at number three, the right not to finish a book.
So free yourself from worries about what you read, where you read and how you read. Please, please, just ENJOY READING!
