Holiday Travel

Some people travel by car, plane, boat or train to be with family or friends for the Holidays.  We at SGRL Friends invite you to travel through a book.  You could go to the Alps or Rockies for snow and build a snowman or you could ski.  You could go to the islands and get some sun, you could have the adventure of a lifetime, or you could gather clues to solve a mystery.

Travel to outerspace or back in history.  You could learn how to do a craft you always wanted to do or you could plan for your retirement.  There is no need for commercial travel, just grab a book and read and go anywhere you want.

Book your amazing travels with the SGRL BookStore for $2.00 or less and travel anywhere,
