Christine Harding

It is such a wonderful book - so gentle, and warm, and very humorous, and all about books! And, silly though it sounds, I really, really want the Queen to be just like she is here!

Mary Ronan Drew

Yes! I agree, Christine, the Queen has a backbone of steel and appears to be an effective administrator and to have a (British) sense of humor. I'll bet she reads a lot.

Kilian Metcalf

I read this, too, when it was first published and enjoyed it very much. I sympathise with the poor queen, whose life is so regimented that she has to steal time away from her duties to read. You'd think at her age, she would be able to retire and spend her time lost in books.
