SantaThing: Secret Santa for Book Lovers

SantaThing is LibraryThing's Secret Santa for book lovers. This is our TWELFTH annual SantaThing!

Join LibraryThing

Join LibraryThing to participate in SantaThing!

How it works

  1. Become a Secret Santa. Choose your gift level ($15–50) and bookstore, such as Powell's, Amazon, and others.

    LibraryThing takes no "cut." If you pay $30, you get $30 worth of books (plus shipping at some sellers).

    You can sign up for yourself, or make this a gift for a friend on or off LibraryThing.
  2. We choose a LibraryThing member to be your "Santee," the person you'll be buying for. We try to match up members with similar tastes in books.
  3. You pick books for your Santee.
  4. LibraryThing elves order the books and the books are shipped directly to your Santee. Only LibraryThing and the bookseller see your address.
  5. You receive a package with the books from your Secret Santa—and rejoice!

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.

Questions?

Check out the SantaThing Help page, join the discussion on Talk, or email lorannelibrarything.com. See the blog post for more information.
