'Twas the Night Before Chick Lit by Geralyn Corcillo

'Twas the night before Chick Lit (some really fab books)
Got put onto Kindles, cell phones, and Nooks.
Stockings and garters and heels with a flair,
Were kicked off and traded for the most comfy chair

As women were waiting by the chimney with tea
For elves to deliver the most bookish glee
With gift cards for downloads of ebooks galore
Or actual paperbacks bought in a store.

They just want their novels, these ladies who doze
In front of the fire cuz everyone knows
That books are the best when you want a great gift
Because they inspire, amuse and uplift.

Like a lamp in the window you see through the snow,
A good book casts light with a warm cozy glow.
And women, they know this, as they work and juggle
To do this and that without seeming to struggle.

For when the day's over, they get to their beds
Where visions of heroines dance in their heads
As they read of adventures both wacky and wild
Or sometimes more sober, insightful, and mild.

There's something for every manner of fan
Who loves to read Chick Lit whenever she can.
There's Kinsella or Weiner or Cabot or Keyes
Or Fielding or Fowler or Moyes, if you please.

And more authors out there, as yet undiscovered,
Have stories you'll love and some really cute covers!
So look at the book sites, read blurbs and a chapter
To find your book bliss and relaxation rapture.

For downtime, like Christmas and the days that come after,
Are ideal for indulging in romance and laughter.
So load up your eReader with Chick Lit cheer -
You'll feel all the feels for a HappyNew Year!
