The Twelve Days of Bookmas By S.G. Browne

When I was a young boy, I preferred the company of my television or my collection of Hot Wheels to books. Also, when it came to going to the library or to a bookstore, I either broke out in hives or came up with an excuse to avoid having to go inside.

But as I grew older and realized what I had been missing, I found myself drawn to books and to the stories and adventures that unfolded within their pages. Eventually I realized that I wanted to make people feel the way I did when I read a good book, so I set out to become a writer. Now I’m that uncle who buys his nephews and nieces books for their birthdays and for Christmas rather than toys or iTunes gift cards.

So to commemorate the holidays and my love of reading, here’s my version of “The Twelve Days of Christmas,” only with books:
