SantaThing: Secret Santa for Book Lovers

SantaThing is LibraryThing's Secret Santa for book lovers.
See the blog post for more information.

How it works

  1. Become a Secret Santa. Choose your payment level ($15–$45) and preferred bookstore—Amazon and its international stores, Powell's, Book Depository or Longfellow Books in Maine.

    You can sign up for yourself, or make this a gift for a friend (LibraryThing member or not).
  2. If you pay $30, you get $30 worth of books. We take no cut. But Amazon has changed their minimum for free shipping this year, so if you're requesting paper copies from Amazon, you will get $5 less in books, to cover shipping.
  3. We choose a LibraryThing member to be your "Santee," the person you'll be buying for. We try to match up similar members.
  4. You pick books for your Santee, based on their library and wishlist. The limit is whatever they paid. There is no fee on top.
  5. LibraryThing elves order the books and the books are shipped directly to your Santee. Only LibraryThing and the bookseller see your address.
  6. You receive a package with the books from your Secret Santa.
  7. Everyone rejoices!

Even if you don't want to be a Santa, you can help by suggesting books for others. Click on a member's name to leave a suggestion.

Any questions? Email infolibrarything.com

Crucial dates

Thursday, December 5th at 12pm Eastern. Gift picking ends. LibraryThing sends the order via eight tiny ponies to the bookstore you chose.
