Cruise into Christmas Joy Ride by Melody Carlson if you need some Christmas inspiration or a light read to fit in between decorating and wrapping presents. I picked this particular title from the display at Napanee Branch – the cover was the spark that drew me in – an RV decorated in Christmas lights.
An inspirational Christmas story, it reminds us to give as much as we receive, as it rolls along telling us about the intergenerational friendship between neighbours and friends, Joy and Miranda. Miranda accepts Joy’s invitation to join her in her RV delivering some Christmas cheer along the way to her new retirement home. Daydreaming about retirement, I have thought about an RV for travels (your own bed and bathroom – yes please) and the author has kindly researched and presented a pretty accurate idea of the ups and downs of RV-ing, especially in the winter season.
The “joy ride” becomes a great Christmas adventure and really put me in the Christmas spirit. Travel to any of our library branches or website to select your own Christmas excursion.
