The Queen's Christmas speech is a long-held tradition in the UK and the Commonwealth, a chance for the realm's leader to assess the year that passed and send along some happy vibes for the one to come. It's broadcast on British television, radio, and over the internet on Christmas Day, and now Amazon's joining in its distribution by promising to make the transcript available to download as a free ebook on Kindles. If you're feeling impatient, Amazon has already compiled the previous 59 years of speeches into an ebook dubbed The Queen's Christmas Speeches (1952 - 2010) by Her Majesty Queen Elizabeth II — a compendium that's sure to expand by one after this weekend. So, if you want to take a walk through the past half century via the eyes of a monarch, just open up your Kindle Store and get downloading.
