I believe last year it was cancelled due to her health
From the pictures MM has twitted, I guess she does like to read

interesting intervention by MM, very unexpected that she opened up so much. here's some translated sections of her speech on her strained relationship with her dad, and how reading changed her.

Quote:
"One of the most difficult issues in my life is my relationship with my father and relationship with death, like something inside me was shattered and a hole opened in my chest. It was winter, we were in a cabin and when I left to go skiing, it was as if the wind blowing through me ".
"When my father died, there were many things I could not say, many did not understand and that reproached me. Knausgård wrote about his father, but I felt that it did on mine." "From small I felt there was always something I had to hide, because none of my friends knew my father was an alcoholic. Believe the joy I've had to be able to disappear into the world of books he was strengthened by that. Literature is important to understand the most important things in our lives, making us more vulnerable, which makes us take with shame.

Thanks fortimo A pity I missed the book tour. I'm sure you found everything about it

The Royal Court has now an account at soundcloud.com:
https://soundcloud.com/det-kongelige-hoff

In this clip Mrs. Tjessem (CP Mette-Marit's mother) reads from "Knerten and Little Brother»
https://soundcloud.com/det-kongelige...er-fra-knerten
"It was read much at home when the Crown Princess grew up. Crown Princess' mother always read to her kids. At the journey with the Literature train the Crown Princess told of those great moments and the pleasure of being read to as a child."

(you should start it)

And the translation (Google) for it:

"A train filled with books.
A library on rails.
I hope people can be inspired
to read some of what they see here.
Crown Princess
filled up the train with books -
- And traveled from Bodo to Stjørdal
and talked to people along the way.
On Fauske was it about children's books.
It was empty in class without
our excited, Jonathan.
I read the text
about children's literature for Ingrid.
She said, "Mom, when you need to explain
why reading is important to you, "-
- "Can you say that your greatest
wish was to have a horse, "-
- "And you went into the books and found
it. " It is so lovely said.
The idea of literature train was
that people would share reading experiences.
Snåsa should act on taboos
and the difficult things in life.
When I read Karl Ove Knausgård
for the first time -
- It was as if something
in me broke.
When my father died,
I had much that was left unsaid.
Much I did not understand and
could blame myself for.
Knausgård wrote about his father. I
felt that he wrote about my.
As a little I always felt
that I had something to hide.
None of my friends knew
that my father was an alcoholic.
The joy I had when
disappearing into the world of books -
- Has been reinforced
precisely why.
Literature is important
to understand -
- The hardest things in life.
What makes us most vulnerable,
and making sure we carry with us shame.
Crown Princess got into tips
to good books. They were collected -
- In Queen park gazebo, where
park guests could borrow a book.
In what way can literature
affect us or change us?
Good literature reminds us of what
is at the core of being human.
It is what makes
literature so special.
The manages to look not only at
the general human, -
- But also look at the core that makes
that a target bit extra up -
- And think that life has
a value of one way or another.
We read for kids every night.
Haakon is particularly good at it.
I'm good at finding
the really nice books -
- And say, It is my turn
to read. The I will read!
We were on Easter holiday
with the children.
I read The Brothers Lionheart
again for at least man.
We sat on a crowded beach.
A lot of people and mariachi bands everywhere.
Every Mexican family had
ghetto blaster with loud music, -
- And we sat under a small umbrella,
punch together and read.
Every time I had to take me a break,
said Magnus: "Mom, read more!"
The literature can really catch
one on a completely different way -
- Than other things do.
Your happiest bokopplevelse?
I am very happy
when I have a break to read.
I rejoice that way
to summer and to read.
For me it is tantamount
to find tranquility."
