Secret Santa

Christmas is my favorite holiday, and I just love the month of December! I thought of maybe hosting something on my blog (like I did in October with The Haunted Blog Tour) and finally came up with something....a secret santa! I love doing this with my friends, and thought it would be a fun game to play with all of my fellow bloggers, plus everyone can get a book they want for the holidays! :)

For those who have never done it, here's how it works. After everybody sign's up/enters, I will pair everyone up so each person has a partner. You'll be given a wishlist of 10-15 books from your partner, and you simply mail them out a book from that list! (Or, if you're very generous, you can include more than one book!) But the fun part is, you don't know who your partner is or what your exact gift will be!

Please read everything below before deciding to enter! :

*I made a sign-up/form spreadsheet which you'll find below. But only fill it out if you are seriously going to participate in the secret santa! It won't work out well if you sign up, but then end up not doing your part.

*It's open internationally! But I'll try to pair everyone up with those in like countries. Examples: USA with USA, UK with UK, Australians with Australians, etc. However, if you're willing to ship anywhere, please say so on the sign-up sheet! That would really help me out.

*Books mailed out should be new or gently used and in good condition. I mean this is a Christmas present.. :) And only mail out book(s) that are on your partner's wishlist!!

*Sign-up ends on December 1 for now, but this date will most likely change. I'll email you all of your partner's information probably a week after, no later than December 10. Please mail your package no later than December 17!!

*When you have sent out your partner's gift, please email me, letting me know! Also, once you get your own package, email me so I'll know.

*My email is: booksobsession(at)gmail(dot)com

If you have any questions or comments, etc. just email me and ask! I want this to be fun and enjoyable, and as easy and stress-free as possible. I've never done anything like this before but cross your fingers it will turn out well.

Also: PLEASE re-post this or put the button on your sidebar, so many people will enter!! The more people that enter, the better. That way, it will be much easier to pair people up with corresponding countries.

**Credit for this idea goes to Kate! Thanks, love ya girl.
