Secret Santa

Posted on: November 3rd, 2016 by Claire - 35 Comments

*update* This is now closed. Secret Santas have heard from me about their bookees. Thanks everyone who is playing! xx

  1. Add a comment to this post saying you are in.
  2. Then use the contact page to send me a message saying something about yourself (for example I’m currently feeling a bit blue because my dog died, I wish I read more non-fiction and I love the outdoors) by the end of November. Please include your address which I PROMISE will be used only once for Secret Santa 2016.
  3. At the end of the month I will contact you with the address of the person whose secret santa you will be. But not the name.
  4. You will send them a book, wrapped, for Christmas.
  5. You will receive a wrapped book in the post to open at Christmas.

Rules: You can only play if I already know you in real life, or on social media.

Who wants to play?

      Thank you so much to my secret santa, man, woman or beast. The Countenance Divine by Michael Hughes is just my kind of book. I love historical fiction, plus the title allows me to sing the whole of Jerusalem and I do so love to sing. I enjoyed giving as much as receiving. It was an excellent idea, Claire, and I hope it happens again next year.

    Ooooh, what’s this, what’s this – it’s a book shaped parcel from my Secret Santa that I shall resist opening until Christmas morn.
    Thank you in advance whomsover you may be!

  18. Just wanted to say thank you to my secret Santa for Tim Pears The Horseman. It looks like just my sort of book.

  19. Jennie Rigg says:

    Thank you to my secret Santa for the lovely hardback of Lies of Locke Lamora, which is a book that I did used to own, but was at a friend’s house in Hebden Bridge when the floods happened last year, so I lost it.

    It was lovely to get it replaced, and with such a nice edition too 🙂
