On the joy of reading

I've just finished reading "The Uncommon Reader" by Alan Bennett.

On the surface this short fable describes what happens when the Queen discovers the joy of reading.

In the beautifully crafted text Bennett makes "the perfect argument for reading".
Everyone who claims that they have no time for reading should be made to read this book.

"Reading is untidy, discursive and perpetually inviting"
