Short and sweet but maybe too short. What happens when the Queen discovers a love of reading? It begins to affect everything she does from running the country to her dealings with her staff and cabinet. The book takes place over a period of years but moves so quickly that if you're not paying attention you'll miss it. But more importantly, it talks about the importance of books and of reading and presents it in a unique and interesting way.
