Please sign up here if you want to participate in our exchange.

This is how it will work
1) Everyone who signs up does so as a committment to participate. Do NOT sign up if you think you can not, might not, want to but not sure. It really stinks for someone to put their name in only to be forgotten or unattended to by the chick who got their name.
2) Send me your name and address and answers to questions below as confirmation that you are participating
3) At deadline for gathering names I will send each of you a name and address of a fellow chick. This will be your secret chick.
4) Keep this chick in mind as you go about your days and gather, create or buy something for your secret chick no more than 5.00
5) By designated time please WRAP and send your gift.
6) Once you recieve your gift hold onto it until scheduled opening day.
7) On opening day open your gift and come back here to express thanks from your secret chick and get to know them even better!

message 18: by Cindy (new)

Cindy (cyndil62) | 1774 comments I know one more thing I'd like to mention about the exchange...I'd really like to know what book (s) would be on my secret pals wish list to own. Last year I checked out the bookshelf but couldn't tell which ones she already had.
Just a thought.

Very excited about this!!! :)

Bloomin’Chick (Jo) aka The Eclectic Spoonie (bloominchick) Can't wait to find out who my secret Chick is!!!

Cindy, there's a new automatic "wishlist" shelf for everyone on gr's so maybe that will help you this year!

message 20: by Meg (new)

Meg (megvt) | 3069 comments where is the wishlist, sounds like fun

Elizabeth (Alaska) I didn't know about the automatic wish list, but I made my own shelf. My To Read shelf contains only those books I actually own but haven't read.

message 22: by Cindy (new)

Cindy (cyndil62) | 1774 comments Yea...Jo...where is this and how do you do it? It does sound fun, thanks for mentioning it!
My Library To Read shelf is the shelf I use for books I want (or want to read) but don't own.

Bloomin’Chick (Jo) aka The Eclectic Spoonie (bloominchick) If you go to "My Books" at the top of your page & click on that, it will being you to a page with all of your "shelves" listed in the left hand column. Scroll towards the bottom of the list of shelves and you'll see "wish list." What this does is actually add these books for the Goodreads books "swap" (which you can find under "Explore" at the top of your page) which is like paperback swap but no fees. Any books added to this shelf will that come up for the "swap" as available will generate a gr's message to you that it's become available, which you can disregard.

I've added books that I may want to get through the swap and some I just wish I had! You can add to the wish list shelf as you would any other shelves.

message 25: by Cindy (new)

Cindy (cyndil62) | 1774 comments Thanks Jo, I'll check it out for sure!

Holli Yes Kathryn-- send Tera a personal message with your answers and she'll sign you up :)

message 29: by Cyn (new)

Cyn | 258 comments I will like to sign up if this is a one time gift exchange...did I misunderstand that it was a once a month thing? I need more coffee

Bloomin’Chick (Jo) aka The Eclectic Spoonie (bloominchick) No worries Cyn! It's a one time thing, like last year, not once a month.

message 31: by Claire (new)

message 37: by Usako (new)

Usako (bbmeltdown) | 654 comments Oh ahahhaha. I forgot to post here despite that I messaged Tera what feels like ages ago!

message 38: by Rose (new)

Rose (roseo) Oh boy, oh boy! I'm in! So exciting!

*whispers* I don't know if I'll be able to WAIT to open it!

Ha-ha, I'll never tell! :D (I'm as bad as a little kid. Except MY excuse is that I'm old :D

Elizabeth (Alaska) Rose, I'm like you. We always waited until Christmas morning, but the last few years it has been Christmas Eve and getting earlier and earlier then.

I'm actually going to extend the deadline to end of day today since my internet has been down. Ill start going through them this weekend and get things organized but I haven't been able to access information like I needed to until today. Thanks,

Bloomin’Chick (Jo) aka The Eclectic Spoonie (bloominchick) Great Tera! Thanks again so much for organizing this and the bookmark swap And the cookbook! Much appreciated!

message 45: by Rosemary (new)

Rosemary | 479 comments so how do we do the cookbook?

message 46: by Tera, First Chick (new)

Tera | 2560 comments Mod
I wanted to space things out a bit so no one (self included) didn't feel overwhelmed if they wanted to participate in all things. In the weeks to come Ill share the cookbook information, until then be gathering those recipes :)

message 47: by Rosemary (new)

Rosemary | 479 comments ok, sounds deliciously fun!

message 48: by Claire (new)

Claire Talbot OK - I messaged Tera last week, but have not gotten any response back. Should I be concerned? If it is already arranged, and people are paired off, that is OK, just let me know! Thanks, Claire

message 49: by Tera, First Chick (new)

Tera | 2560 comments Mod
Sorry Claire and everyone else. I got everyones messages I just had my internet down until Friday and then my birthday and stuff. I extended the deadline till Saturday so I will be getting names and pairing people up this week. Trying to stagger this with the bookmark swap and stay on top of both. Should be good but I didn't have time to message everyone back that I got their message. I will post when I hand out everyone's names and if at that time you haven't gotten a message let me know and Ill fix it. That should be happening by weeks end.
Thanks for being patient,

message 50: by Kathryn (new)

Kathryn (kathrynh) Not to worry Tera, we're all very patient. Happy belated bithday - did you get good stuff??? Don't you just feel naked when your internet goes's amazing how it's an integral part of our lives!
