A little while ago I wrote a post about how I wished there was a Summer secret santa type blogger swap. It turns out that I must be at least mildly psychic, because Hanna had been thinking the same thing, so we decided we should put our heads together and get organising!
Basically we thought it might be nice for people to get surprise parcels of books in the middle of the summer as well as just at Christmas, as a lot of people (ourselves excepted) don’t have summer birthdays and so have a long time to wait between bookish present getting!
We both really enjoyed the way that The Broke and theBookish organised their Christmas Secret Santa swap, so we thought that we would organise ours along similar lines. Basically if you would like to take part and send a fellow book blogger an awesome midsummer gift, all you have to do is email us a few details by June 17th and we will match you up with somebody! You will need to be able to send your parcel by July 7th.
Your parcel should consist of a book or two (they don’t have to be brand new, just in nice condition – something you wouldn’t mind receiving yourself), and a little extra present or two plus a card or note if you feel so inclined.
To participate please email the following details to ninjabookswap(at)outlook(dot)com:
- Your name and address details
- Blog address
- A link to your wishlist
- A short list of some of your likes so that your sender can pick out an extra gift
- Whether you are willing to send outside of your own country
If you would like to sign up more than once (to send & receive two parcels instead of one) please let us know in your email! If you want to receive two parcels, you will have to also send two parcels as well! If you could also spread the word via twitter, and by posting on your blog about the swap, it would be greatly appreciated!
