As for my characters, the Queen catches up on her light romance reading. She does not go public with this, indeed is rather embarrassed by her addiction to these books but she collects them from around the universes. She sees it as a kind of research as to how different species and worlds conduct themselves in matters of the heart. She is certainly happier reading about that rather than joining in. The Queen's writing continues to be the daily business of government though she does enjoy keeping a journal of her time on her holiday estate. She also draws pictures for this.
Eileen likes to read historical works, fiction and non-fiction. Her writing is business like, both when she was still on active service for the Queen, and now she lives on Earth with Derek. Eileen also likes reading books of letters by well known people. She sees this as a licence to be nosy (and Eileen always likes that).
