Reading focuses on the magical trade. What we would consider fictional fairy tales they see as non-fiction or documentaries. The idea of making up stories as we do is looked down on. Stories happen in the Kingdom. They are re-enacted in villages around the Kingdom to keep the tales alive that way. It is considered a great honour for a girl to be picked to play her village’s Cinderella, the difference being she ends up becoming Cinderella and meets and marries her own Prince Charming. This is why making up stories is despised. The general feeling is that there are enough stories as it is and the ones that exist are factual so why bother inventing any?
It is also considered if a writer is prepared to lie to get their story "across", what else would said author lie about? Eileen took to books and reading well on her defection. This was partly to revise English history and culture to help her blend in but she has developed a love for the works of P.G. Wodehouse, which has come as a surprise to her daughter, Jenny. Her mother doesn't usually "do" light-hearted.
