    I think that the following should be in the reader’s rights
    1. A kid can have as many books as she /he wants.
    2.parents have to buy the kids as many books as they want.
    3.Every school should have a book club.

    Readers should have rights of writing their own book for an inspireation for other books.Its illegal to copy somebodys book but some people wants to.It would be cool if you guys would make something to make a story about your favorite book but has some different stuff then the ornigal book.My favorite book is Holes so I wanna make a kindave like a different version of the book.One day

    In my opinon i think good readers should have quiet time to there selfs because,when you read you are most likely to get more information into your brain . So you learn things you don’t know and you also refresh your brain.Also my opinon is little or older siblings should stay out of the persons room or at least be quiet in the area I am reading.It is very rude for someone to make a nosie that bothers you.Thank you that is my opinon!

    Readers should have the right to have acess to any library, I think it will be better because it will allow people to get many books making them happy.

    I feel that if you are in the middle of a really good book, you should be left undisturbed until you either finish it or have a need to get up. Also, us readers should be allowed to choose out own books for school reading assignments.

      Same, here, athenaconfident50! Whenever i show up for breakfast with a book, my Grandma always tries to take away my book by pulling it out of my hands, and i try to dodge her and then she yells “NO!” And it usually turns into a war.
