My Bookworm Santa

Hey guys! It's time I settled in for a long midfall chat. It's time to talk about one of my favorite times of the year. Yep, right up there with Halloween, Valentine's Day and my birthday... Wait for it... I'm getting there... CHRISTMAS! Woo!

Yes, I am a major Christmas nut. Carols, singing, baking (well, my mom bakes and I eat. Cooking is so not my strength... Anywho...) I love holidays of pretty much any variety. And have I found something awesome to do to celebrate the holiday season here at I Write, I Read, I Review. Check this out:

Click me! Click me! :D

*Pauses a moment to 'Oooh' and 'Ahhh' at the pretty button.* Isn't it pretty?

Anyway, before my coffee hyped brain spins around in any more circles at 5 a.m., maybe I'll just let the people hosting it explain it to you, hm? ;)

Already so excited you want in NOW? Click here.

If not, feel free to read on...

In their own words...

My Bookworm Santa' is an event that Bree from The Magic Attic and I got together and planned. We hope you can join in and participate with us :)

My Bookworm Santa is the book blogger's version of 'Secret Santa.' So you sign up via the form below, and we'll pair you up with another random entrant. If you're only willing to ship to America, we'll pair you up with someone from America.(remember though, that the Book Depository ships free to most countries. This is a good way to meet some international book bloggers) We'll send their wishlist and address to you, and your wishlist and address to them. Then, before December 10th, we'll ask that you purchase a book from the wishlist we sent over, and send the book to your randomly selected blogger. And on Christmas (December 25th), you'll reveal yourself to the other person, and hopefully make new friends :) Even if you don't celebrate Christmas, you're more than welcome to join us.

We'll also be having a small, separate giveaway during the sign-up period. If you tweet about this event, blog about this event, or follow our blogs via GCF, and grab the event button then you'll earn extra entries. Signing up for our My Bookworm Santa event earns you one point. At the end of the sign-up period, we'll randomly choose two participants (international people are more than welcome), and send them over one book from their wishlist.

Setting up a blog post about the event is a great way to get more named referrals. Each person that names you as a referral will get you an extra entry into the contest.

Another part of my Bookworm Santa is the "open wish list" form. Please only sign up on this separate form if you have already signed up to participate in the program. The additional form will be used for people to post their wish lists for everyone to see. This way, if anyone wants to send some additional books to spread the holiday cheer, you can browse the form and fulfill someone's holiday wish!

Rules, Terms and Conditions:

If you sign up for this event, you're PROMISING us that you will, no matter what, fulfill your end of the agreement and send over a book to the blogger. If you have any problems, please come talk to one of us.

International people are more than welcome to join :)
Sign-ups close at the beginning of December
Please do not reveal yourself to your assigned blogger until after December 25th
You MUST send over a book before December 10th so that it can arrive to the blogger's house in time for, or a little after Christmas on December 25th.
The book MUST be in in perfect condition, and listed in your assigned blogger's wishlist.
This isn't created as a way to 'get new books.' Our goal through this is to help create new friends.
Even if you don't celebrate Christmas, you're more than welcome to join us :)
You can sign up through THIS FORM. The form will also be below. Thanks,
Michelle and Bree

PLEASE NOTE: If you've already signed up once via Michelle or Bree's blog, you don't need to sign up again on the other blog
