Read 2 times. Last read January 1, 1999.

A core book in my life and work, and perhaps the book from which I quote the most. This is a book you will dog-ear, underline, and highlight passages so that you can read them to friends and co-workers. You will buy five copies to give away--I have given away dozens!

Really, if you haven't read this and you are participating in a forum such as this, why on earth not?

John It's the same book, with a different title and translator. And Quentin Blake contributed both a thoughtful intro and some truly terrific illustrations.

Actually, "Rights of the Reader" is its third title in English---over in the UK it was published as "Reads Like A Novel."
