Secret Santa for Book Lovers
Join LibraryThing to participate in SantaThing!
SantaThing is LibraryThing's Secret Santa for book lovers. This is our 15th annual SantaThing!
How it works
- Become a Secret Santa
Choose your gift level ($15–50) and bookstore.
LibraryThing takes no "cut." $5.00 is deducted for shipping for all stores, except Book Depository and Kindle.
You can sign up for yourself, or make this a gift for a friend on or off LibraryThing.
- We choose a LibraryThing member to be your "Santee," the person you'll be buying for. We try to match up members with similar tastes in books.
- You pick books for your Santee.
- LibraryThing elves order the books and the books are shipped directly to your Santee. Only LibraryThing and the bookseller see your address.
- You receive a package with the books from your Secret Santa—and rejoice!
Even if you don't want to be a Santa, you can help by suggesting books for others. Click on a member's name to leave a suggestion.
Monday, November 29 at 12pm EST. Sign-up ends. Secret Santas are chosen, profile messages are sent to the Secret Santa, and you can then enter your gift choices.
Friday, December 3 at 12pm EST (17:00 GMT). Gift picking ends. LibraryThing sends the order via eight tiny ponies to the bookstore you chose.
