Come hear about their harrowing adventures and ask Wendy to autograph one (or both) of her books, Tightwads on the Loose: A Seven Year Pacific Odyssey and Sea Trials: Around the World with Duct Tape and Bailing Wire.

Ask Santa for a good book

Face it. You love to read. You are an addict. It’s OK. There are worse addictions than being a confirmed bookworm. And it’s even OK to buy what you really want for yourself. After all, not everyone is a mind-reader. Not even Santa.
