Ellen’s November Recommendation

 The Uncommon Reader by Alan Bennett

“Humorous novella about the Queen of England borrowing from a bookmobile.”

Review from Kirkus Reviews: “A royal fable celebrating the transformative properties (and a few of the unsettling consequences) of reading as an obsession. In a country of commoners, the uncommon reader is the Queen…Those who love reading will recognize the process of the Queen’s enrapturing, how one book inevitably leads to another, and so many others, and that the richness of the reading life will always be offset by the recognition that time grows shorter as the list of books grows longer. ”
