Led by her yapping corgis to the Westminster travelling library outside Buckingham Palace, the Queen finds herself taking out a novel by Ivy Compton-Burnett. Duff read though it is, the following week her choice proves more enjoyable and awakens in Her Majesty a passion for reading so great that her public duties begin to suffer. And so, as she devours work by everyone from Hardy to Brookner to Proust to Beckett, her equerries conspire to bring the Queen's literary odyssey to a close.

Eilen Hausjärveltä palatessamme poikkesimme Riksun Citymarkettiin katsomaan, olisiko siellä mieleisiäni saappaita (olivat loppu Forssan CM:stä ja nämä oranssit Kontiot ovat vain Citymarkettien valikoimissa). Oikeankokoisia saappaita ei ollut täälläkään, mutta tulihan sitä ostetuksi vähän pullaa mukaan mökille sekä Roosa nauha-postikortteja :) Samalla siirtyi pari kirjaa Paulannille :) Isot kiitokset, kun viitsit tulla Cittariin, vaikka meidän reissuunlähtöpäätöksemme tehtiin vasta myöhään edellisiltana ja paluuaikataulu oli avoin! Oli mukava tavata vaikka näin pikaisestikin!

Aurinkoisia syyspäiviä!

Thanks for coming to pick up the books, enjoy reading!

This was such a funny and witty book - I thoroughly enjoyed it as a quick read between other books. I also liked its take on reading and books. And I couldn't but wonder what the Queen herself thought about this piece of fiction that chose Her as its protagonist.
