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."
