The Uncommon Reader by Alan Bennett
“The Uncommon Reader” is a sweet little novella about the power of the joy of reading. Bennett has the Queen of England stumble accidently upon a book mobile at the edge of the palace, borrowing a book primarily out of politeness. After doing this a few times, the Queen begins to lose herself in her reading, to the point where those around her begin to think of it as a problem.
This definitely is a sweet book, but I listened to audio and I think it lost something moving from print to spoken word. A book about the love of books just really needs to be read.
