What’s in a name?

“So, how do you pronounce ‘Read Queen’ – is it ‘Red‘ Queen or ‘Reed‘ Queen?”

Well, just as the Queen herself says:

“I love to read, the Queen she said, and in so doing I am well read.”

So the pronunciation is ‘red’ as a book must be ‘read’ in order to be a used book. It’s also an homage to The Red Queen of Lewis Carroll’s classic Through the Looking-Glass (the follow up to Alice’s Adventures in Wonderland), two of our favorite books.

In a quote all too fitting to our current times, Carroll’s Red Queen says “Now, here, you see, it takes all the running you can do, to keep in the same place. If you want to get somewhere else, you must run at least twice as fast as that!
