Book Blogger Holiday Swap

This year, I read about a Book Blogger Holiday Swap that a couple of the bloggers I follow had signed up for. I didn't know about it last year, so this was my first year to participate. It was super fun. I got my Secret Santa giftee about two weeks ago and set about looking for a gift.

I checked out her blog -- www.lookatmybooks.blogspot.com -- and her wishlist, and picked a couple of titles based on that. Hopefully they turn out to be good choices, but she seems to read a lot of the same kinds of things that I do, so crossing fingers.

I'd wanted to get a head start since I'll be away next week and I got a note today (Saturday) that not only had she received the gift, but that she was my Secret Santa as well!

She picked out a really cool set of bookplates from Nifty Swank and bookmarks by Stephanie Schauer of Pretty {much} Art -- both of whom have Etsy sites I've linked to so you can look at their great collections -- and she got me the latest Cody McFadyen. How sweet is that?

The Holiday Swap was fun and I'm really glad that I participated. Now I have a new blog to follow, too!

Anywho, I'm pre-posting here and trying to get a week's worth in so my blog won't suffer from my being away. I've got some book posts coming and will tell you all about my trip to Charleston when I return!
