Tuesday Thinger: It's That Time of Year - SantaThing is Here!

Welcome to another week of Tuesday Thingers! We always love to hear from regular participants as well as new people.

This week is a special Thinger! It is time to sign up for SantaThing... Here are the basics (followed by a link for more details)...

What: Pay $25 to participate, and get up to $20 in books from your Secret Santa (the difference goes toward shipping)
When: Sign up between now and December 1st (that is NEXT week!) at 4 PM EST
Who: It is open to more countries this year (see full list), and you can sign up a non-LT member to receive books as well.
How: Become a Secret Santa, get a name/profile from LT, pick out books based on their library and/or wishes, then LT will place the orders and take care of shipping! ... wait for your package to arrive from your Secret Santa.

Questions: Have you ever participated in SantaThing (it is in its third year)? If so, what did you like? Dislike? Are you planning to participate this year?

My Answer: I have never participated in SantaThing before, but did hear really good things about it last year.

I have however participated in book blogger Secret Santa projects in the past, and they are always fun. :)

I haven't decided if I'm going to participate this year. My TBR pile is more like a mountain or two, and I'm working really hard to try and catch up... that said, I am REALLY tempted because it sounds like so much fun.

Looking forward to reading everyone's answers!!

Good question. I remember SantaThing from last year, and I know a lot of people really enjoyed it. Here's what I think. Have a great Tuesday, everyone!

I'm not doing the Santa Thing because I am doing the Book Blogger Holiday Swap and there's only so much money to go around!

It's a nice idea and I'm glad it's there, but I would be too worried about drawning somebody who read the sort of books I knew nothing about. But I'm in the LT Virago Modern Classics Group Secret Santa instead, and loving it.

I did SantaThing the first year round, but not the second, so I am doing it again this year!! I cannot wait to see what I have been given - it is taking a LOT of willpower not to sneakily see what I have got!!
