Holiday reading!

Just in case your holiday reading includes this blog, I'd like you to take a couple of minutes to tell us about your favourite Christmas read. It doesn't have to be a mystery but of course, merry murders abound on the bookstore shelves this time of year.

My favourite, and it's one I re-read each year, is The Joyous Season by Patrick Dennis. Do you remember him? He wrote Auntie Mame, one of my all-time favourite romps.
Well we don't have the return of Mame of anything like it, but it is another fun and irreverant story (even though it deals with a family break-up at Christmas)taking place in the 1950's in the oh-so-wealthiness of New York. I guarantee it'll draw a smile from you, perhaps even several chuckles and of course, it's Patrick Dennis so the ending has to be a happy one.

Even though it's been in print for a few decades, it can still be found on-line.

A Joyous Season is my wish to you -- both for a warm and fuzzy reading experience and a happy holiday time of year.

Now, what's your choice?
