Secret Santa 2012 SIGN UP


1st Annual Secret Santa

Hello everyone! And welcome to the 1st Secret Santa! 
Brought to you by Christen @ Goldilox and the Three Weres 
& Jennifer @ The Book Nympho.

You do not have to be a blogger to be part of the fun. 
You just have to follow the rules.

Each person will link to at least one wish list either Amazon, Barnes and Noble, Goodreads, etc. Names will be thrown in a virtual hat and drawn so that each person will have a Secret Santa who will give them a book(s) from their wish list. This way everyone will GIVE and GET a book(s).

The Rules:
  • International participants are welcome, too, anywhere that the Book Depository ships. 
  • If you do not have a wish list you need to create one to link in the form that you will fill out below. 
  • Secret Santa will choose a book(s) from your wish list for a total of around $18-20 (Remember that the Book Depository has free shipping and ebooks are sometimes cheaper than paper. So if you have a Kindle or Nook you might check that you prefer ebooks. Who knows your Santa might give you more books if they are cheaper. And books from Book Depo and ebooks have no shipping cost so keep this in mind. (Minimize the cost and maximize the books.) 
  • If your Santee prefers ebook(s) as their format I will include their email address so you know where to send the ebooks (please have the ebooks scheduled to email close to Christmas). 
  • Once Santas and Santees are assigned, addresses and wish list links will be sent out. If you're not comfortable with this, please do not sign up. After all this is SECRET Santa. You will not know who your Santa is until you get your books. Signups begin on November 1st (TODAY) and end on November 20th
  • Your Santee info will be emailed to you by November 26th.
  • Book(s) must be shipped by December 10th so that everyone receives their books by Christmas.

If you are a blogger please help spread the word by grabbing the button and putting it on your side bar.

If you are not a blogger you can still help by Tweeting about the event or posting on Facebook. The more Santas we get to sign up the more fun.

The last question on the form is not mandatory but the elves at Secret Santa's workshop will be checking the list and someone could get something special in their stocking if they are picked by spreading the word.

Grab the button!


  1. I'm still contemplating signing up for this... It's a great idea; I'm just not sure if I'll have the budget for it in December.

    1. Understandable. Hope you can if not catch us next year.

  2. I did this last year but it was with someone I don't really do a lot of stuff with. I'm so glad you guys are hosting this year!! I signed up!!

    1. Thanks for signing up. Yeah a few of the YA bloggers do something similar so we thought we would bring it to our blogs for the UF/PNR readers that don't follow YA blogs.

    1. You're welcome. I think this will be an annual thing.

  4. I'm so happy you guys are organising this! Been looking around for a Secret Santa book exchange event. :) I've signed up and promoted it on my blog.
