UPDATE: SantaThing is closed, and the Santa-ees have been picked. Check the SantaThing page to see who you’ve got, and start picking out books!
You have until noon, Eastern Standard Time (17:00 GMT) to sign up for SantaThing, Secret Santa for LibraryThing members. If you want to be part of it, sign up now! (If you want to know more about it, see the previous blog post.)
As of now there are 235 Santas. That’s a lot of participation!
Once we’ve closed it down, we’re going to throw everyone in a hat and pick the Santa-ees (Santa recipients?). We’re going to need to take some time to make sure all the entrants qualify—some non-US/UK/Canada people will have to be tossed—and have given us an address. We hope to turn it around quickly.
Once we’ve picked people, we’ll post comments on member’s profiles. Users who have comment-emailing on will get it by email too, but we can’t guarantee it doesn’t end up in your spam box.
You will have until 10pm Friday (Dec. 14) night to select the book or books. We’ll process things in the order they come in, as fast as Abby and I can handle it.
