Persephone Secret Santa - EVENT

Hosted by Book Psmith

November 11 - December 15, 2009

It's that time of year again! Book Psmith is hosting a fun Secret Santa event to exchange Persephone books with other readers. She writes:

  • Email me at on or before November 10th with your name, address (all personal information will be destroyed after completion of gift exchange), a list of Persephone titles you have read and/or own and specify whether or not you are willing to ship your gift internationally.
  • On November 11, names will be randomly drawn and participants will be notified as to who they are playing Santa to.
  • Using the list of Persephone titles provided by your recipient, go back through your assigned blogger's posts looking for favored authors or subject matter and choose a title you know the blogger will enjoy.
  • At this point, it is up to you as Santa how creative you wish to be in the workshop. You can order the book, have it gift wrapped and sent straight on to the recipient...or you can have the book sent to you first and go a step further by including a small gift that is homemade, bookish in nature or related to how you celebrate Christmas, then wrap it all up and send it on its way. Either way make sure you include a card revealing your identity. (Please indicate in your email if you will be including an additional gift.)
  • With the increase of packages being sent during the holidays, please aim to have your package delivered before or during the first week of December. Take into account the extra time needed if shipping internationally or if you are going on vacation.
  • On December 15th, let's get together by posting who your Secret Santa is and sharing what he (or she) brought you.
