Uncommonly Charming Book

I meant to discuss this charming little novella at the Klatch and it seemed especially appropriate on the day of the Royal Wedding.

When Her Majesty (yes, the very one that donned primrose hat at her grandson’s wedding) wonders into a mobile library van, she feels compelled to check out a book. One ought not to offend. The Queen finds herself enjoying the common activity of reading, devouring volume after volume. This naturally concerns the palace handlers while Her Majesty grows increasingly impatient with duties. One would rather be reading. It’s the drawing room scandal.

The Uncommon Reader by Alan Bennett

So do scamper to the nearest mobile library to check out this mildly subversive little book.
