Christmas Sing-a-long

It's a busy week here at the Carline house. Baking, wrapping, getting the engine in my 14-year old minivan rebuilt... Ho. Ho. Noooooo. At any rate, nothing lightens my mood like singing a rousing Christmas carol or two. Of course, being an author with books to sell, a tie-in would be nice.

I was itching to do a promo video, and asked my son to provide the soundtrack. Unfortunately, he was all tied up with things like finals and juries (these are finals that you sing), so he was unable to help. That means it's up to you.

Let's have a sing-a-long! Here's your motivation (in addition to not being a singer, I'm also not a photographer, but play along):

Okay, in your best Karen Carpenter Dulcet Tones, sing along with me:

(insert beautiful piano/string intro here)

I'll be home for Christmas,
You can count on me.
Please have Nooks,
And lots of books,
And Kindles 'round the tree.

Christmas Eve will find me
Where the stories lead.
I'll be home for Christmas,
With lots of stuff to read.

Happy Holidays with much love for your support and friendship,


P.S. Here's the original, in case you'd rather listen to her.


  1. Gayle, you do know how to have fun. Thanks for making me smile first thing this morning.

  2. Subtle.



    Now, I can't get it out of my head.
