Kara (karaayako) | 3977 comments We're all excited to see what you got! Please post here so your Santa will know your book has arrived safely.

Messages are just starting to go out--please be patient as there is a max number of messages I can send a day, so the messages will go out over the next few days. There are more participants than ever, so I unfortunately won't be able to get all messages out for a full week. I am going through the physical books first then will get to the ebooks. I appreciate your understanding!

Some of your books are coming from very long distances (and some countries are experiencing significant post delays), so don't worry if you don't receive anything quickly.

Kara (karaayako) | 3977 comments We have 292 participants from 36 countries! This is by far our largest group.

The top three countries are the US (191 participants), the UK (18 participants) and India (14 participants).

75 folks wanted ebooks, and 217 wanted physical books.

37 brave souls declined to give their Secret Santa any direction at all and decided to be surprised. :)

Becky | 131 comments I received my books! I got Mrs. Miracle by Debbie Macomber and I am Malala.

Thank you!


message 4: by Kara (new)

Kara (karaayako) | 3977 comments Hooray! The first one to receive a gift! :)


message 5: by Kara (new)

Kara (karaayako) | 3977 comments TO ALL PARTICIPANTS: I am still sending out messages. Because the participant rate was 3x higher than usual, it is taking way longer than expected to scrub the data, do the matches, and send out messages. Unfortunately, Goodreads limits the number of messages a user can send at a time. I really appreciate your patience! I will be finished within a week.
