Sharon Atkinson (darkened_angel) | 797 comments Hello All, Ms Santa Claus here,

After popular demand, the Reindeer have managed to get me here. As we all love reading, especially horror, what would be better then to actually receive a good book to read for Christmas.

If you are interested in participating let me know. I think if we start now and have a deadline by November 25th, everyone should get there secret santa present in time for Christmas.

If you are interested send me your full name and address, to my inbox with either a few titles for your Santa to choose from or a link to your wishlist if you have one (normally a great idea to have a wishlish set up).

By Monday 1st December you will all know who you will have to get your little present for, but remember, it is Secret Santa so don't let it slip who you got!

Rules (I know rules at Christmas, but they are there for a reason):
1. DO NOT BE A CHEAPSKATE AND SEND YOUR OWN BOOK AS THE MAIN GIFT.

2. PLEASE HONOUR PEOPLE'S WISH LIST IF THEY HAVE ONE. IT DOES NOT HAVE TO BE THEIR WHOLE LIST, BUT THERE HAS TO BE AT LEAST ONE ITEM FROM THEIR LIST SENT TO THEM!

3. THINK LONG AND HARD ABOUT WHETHER YOU CAN AFFORD TO PARTICIPATE WHEN THE HOLIDAY GET'S NEARER. IT'S NOT FAIR FOR PEOPLE TO PULL OUT OF THE PROGRAM AT THE LAST MINUTE.

4. IF YOU WISH TO SEND ADDITION GIFTS TO YOUR SANTA, THIS IS ENTIRELY UP TO YOU. AS LONG AS YOU ALL RECEIVE AT LEAST 1 BOOK TO UNWRAP THAT IS ON YOUR WISHLIST, THEN I KNOW I HAVE DONE MY JOB.

5. PRIVATE MESSAGE ME ALL YOUR DETAILS WITH THE HEADING, "HA SECRET SANTA 2014".

6. DO NOT GIVE OUT SOMEONE'S ADDRESS TO A THIRD PARTY WITHOUT PERMISSION!!!!

7. PLEASE LET ME KNOW WHEN YOU HAVE SENT YOUR GIFT OUT AND PLEASE SHARE WITH US ALL WHAT YOU HAVE RECEIVED.

It's all a bit of fun, so lets get in to the Christmas spirit and start sending me your details.

Only 48 sleeps until Christmas, Let us all get the Christmas spirit flowing.

Merry Christmas, from your own Ms Santa Claus!

I'm not entering because I'm just too darned lazy around Christmas time these days and I have a hard time buying stuff for my family. But I hope everyone follows the rules and gets some good reads. Merry Early Christmas!

Natasa (natasa79) | 353 comments This is such a great idea! I first heard about Secret Santa a few years ago thanks to working at a private university where a lot of students were from US. I was so happy to be a Secret Santa and even happier when I got the present (actually I got another huge one from my colleagues since my birthday is on the 21st of December lol)

Unfortunately I can't participate because I have no money. Even if I had to I don't think I could do that from Croatia.

But I do hope everyone gets a lot of fun and nice books.

This is such a nice idea, I'm totally in awe to have something like this on a social network :)

You guys are great!

Jennifer Pelfrey (jennpelfrey) | 75 comments I hope there are friends from the UK joining! I have found an author over there that I just love! His novels are disgusting, frightening, well written page turners! He is a very humble, generous person also.

message 38: by Sharon (new)

Sharon Atkinson (darkened_angel) | 797 comments There may even be a message saying who your santa is in your parcel.


message 39: by Stephanie (last edited Dec 04, 2014 11:55AM) (new)

Stephanie (stephthebookworm) | 70 comments Just a quick question... are most people okay with used books? I prefer to buy used books (in good condition) so that I can send more books since they cost less. Is anyone against this?


message 40: by Carlos (new)

Carlos (cdlt1983) Used are fine


message 41: by Stephanie (new)

Stephanie (stephthebookworm) | 70 comments Okay, my gift has been sent! I got mine sent directly from Amazon to my person since I wasn't sure it would make it in time for Christmas if it shipped to me first THEN to my person. It will be arriving in two separate packages to my person! :)


message 42: by Carlos (new)

Carlos (cdlt1983) I was actually able to find new at low prices so I got lucky there


message 43: by Padders (new)

Padders (randompadley) | -13 comments i have bought one from amazon, brand new and hardback, but being a librarian if the books on my secret santa's list is somewhere in circulation they may let me buy them at high discount rate (sometimes they just withdraw the book and let me have it hehe xD) so possibility my secret santa may get more than just the one if I can get more from work and get them all shipped off in time :)

Russel (rft183) | 14 comments I got a couple new and a couple used for my victim, I mean, recipient.
