A common reader "reads for his own pleasure rather than to impart knowledge or correct the opinions of others.
Above all, he is guided by an instinct to create for himself, out of whatever odds and ends he can come by, some kind of whole. Post a Comment.

What's a Common Reader -- and what is Uncommon Reading? Everyone is hiding a secret of the heart, and even Alexandrina may not realize when she's caught in a maze of love. After the Maharaja dies, his daughter Princess Alexandrina aka "Mink" and the last remaining loyal servant Pookie are forced to move to a "grace and favor" residence at Hampton Court Palace.
The Maharaja of Prindur has died of a heart attack, atop his mistress in an opium den Julia Stuart. Sure, I love a dark, chewy, mind-bending book as much as the next person but sometimes when I'm staring down the stack of books on my side table at the end of a long day I just want something light, engrossing, and funny--Stuart provides these qualities in "The Pigeon Pie Mystery" without being superficial or unintelligent in her choices.
A whimsical treat and a delightful excursion!
