Twas the Night Before Christmas

Christmas is a special time of year at our house as I'm sure it is for many of you.  Curlypow and I have decided to take a little blog hiatus from now until the New Year while we celebrate and spend time with loved ones.  Thank you for following and commenting.  We may not always reply to your comments but we read each and every one and LOVE to hear from our audience.  I've prepared a special little rendition of Twas the Night Before Christmas just for us readers.  Hope you enjoy it!  

Twas the Night Before Christmas

Twas the night before Christmas
When all through the house
Not a creature was stirring, 
Not even a mouse.

Spiced egg nog was left
For the big man to savor
Chocolate gingersnap cookies
(Thought I'd try a new flavor)

My spouse with his tablet
And I with my Nook 
Had just settled down
To read a new book.

When down on the first floor arose such a clatter
I jumped out of bed to see what was the matter
And what to my wondering eyes did appear
But an organized bookshelf which brought me to tears!

Austin, Piccoult, Oliver and Mead
Everything ordered and ready to read!
Twilight, Hunger Games, Divergent, House of Night,
Even my series arranged.  What a sight!

All dressed in red, with a cute pointy hat
Smiling and grinning on my bookshelf he sat,
A cute little elf all bubbly and neat
Eating a cookie and having a treat.

With a sip of his nog and a wink of his eye
He clicked his heels twice and started to fly
But before he dashed off, turned his head and said -
Quickly finish your book and GO BACK TO BED!

- Happy Holidays from The Paperback Princesses!
