Summary: A deliciously funny novella that celebrates the pleasure of reading. When the Queen in pursuit of her wandering corgis stumbles upon a mobile library she feels duty bound to borrow a book. Aided by Norman, a young man from the palace kitchen who frequents the library, Bennett describes the Queen’s transformation as she discovers the liberating pleasures of the written word. With the poignant and mischievous wit of The History Boys, England’s best loved author revels in the power of literature to change even the most uncommon reader’s life. -- Picador
Last April, I read THE UNCOMMON READER by Alan Bennett as one of my books for The Novella Challenge. I thought this book was wonderful (and very funny) -- you can read my review here. This book is now available in trade paperback; and trust me, it's just adorable. I am thrilled to announce that I have up to 5 copies (courtesy of Picador) to share with you!
I will definitely give one book away no matter how many entries I get; but for every additional 15 entries, I will give another one away. For instance if I get 15 entries, there will be two books available. If I get 30, I will give away three copies; and so on! I've never tried this before, so I think it will be interesting!
