The Uncommon Reader by Alan Bennett

"With two mentions of his name and one of New Zealand Sir Kevin retired hurt."

Watch out when the Queen takes up reading. Her duties may be shirked and her conversations may become awkward. I rather enjoyed this little novella which is sure to raise a chuckle.
The Queen happens upon a lending library and uncovers the undeniable attraction of reading for pleasure.
This is something like 120 pages that are destined to make you smile and moorish like a tasty block of Lindt chocolate. My only complaint was that I wanted more. 

4 out of 5 monarchs don't have time to read for fun.
