The Voracious Bibliophile’s Rules for Reading

#1: There are no rules.

#2: Read what you want, when you want, in the format you want.

#3: One genre is not better than another.

#4: You don’t have to read the classics. Unless you want to, of course. The “canon” is mostly Eurocentric and a tool of white supremacy.

#5: Re-reading is valid.

#6: Reading fan-fiction is valid.

#7: It doesn’t matter whether you read fast or slow or somewhere in the middle.

#8: Book snobs are fascists. And most likely colonizers.
