Happy reading!

I love the holidays more than anything, but over the past few years I’ve realized that when it comes to what I want from Santa, I tend to be two different people. There is reader me, and writer me, and they are not as similar as one might expect. This year I am doing my best to embrace both sides, and to illustrate this, I have called on a third me (musician me) to write up two new versions of what is probably my least favorite Christmas song ever—but it’s the song that worked, so there you go.

So without further Fa-la-la-la-la, (*heh* See what I did there? Yeah, dork, I know…) I give you The Twelve Reader/Writer Days of Christmas, dedicated to all my fellow readers and writers out there! (Bet you find some stuff you want!) ;-D

First, the readers: 

On the First day of Christmas,

my true love gave to me,

A new cover for my e-reader.

 

On the Second day of Christmas,

my true love gave to me,

Two fun new bookmarks,

and a new cover for my e-reader.

 

On the Third day of Christmas,

my true love gave to me,

Three reading-nook pillows,

Two fun new bookmarks,

and a new cover for my e-reader.

 

(Since you’re probably going to scroll to the end soon anyway, why don’t we skip the middle and get right to it, hmm?)

 

On the Twelfth day of Christmas,

my true love gave to me,
