Blogger Christmas Exchange

I want to post this before I leave.

Nymeth has very generously organised a Secret Santa Exchange for book bloggers. I think it's fun and a great opportunity for some gift-giving/sharing among the community (We have a community!)

How is goes is like this:

Each participant is randomly assigned as another participant’s Secret Santa, and they are also assigned as somebody else’s “Santee”. What you have to do is send your person a little something – it can be a book, a pretty journal or bookmark, a box of homemade Christmas cookies, a Christmas mixed CD, or whatever else you can think of. Nothing pricey, of course. Second hand books are perfectly acceptable, as are homemade gifts. And of course, it should be something light, so it doesn’t cost a fortune to mail. Each person won’t know who their Secret Santa is until they get their package in the mail.

Christmas postage being the way it is, Nymeth proposes that we try to send out the gifts by Friday the 7th of December. So if you're interested in being somebody's Secret Santa, and receiving something from a mysterious Santa, please sign up by Friday, the 23rd of November.

To sign up, just drop an email to untuneric at gmail dot com, indicating your interest. You should also include:

1. Your mailing address, so Nymeth can pass it onto your Secret Santa.
2. Say something about the kind of things you like. The info will be forwarded to your Secret Santa to help them pick out something for you.

If you're interested, email Nymeth now. I wonder who will I be sending my gift to? Hmmm... Oh, and if you can, please help spread the news!

You're welcome - and it's no problem at all. Glad I could help spread the word actually. Thanks for organising this exchange.

Thanks - will try to survive Hanoi. And I will try to put my limited photography skill to use and try to post some half-decent pictures.

Are you flying direct?

Matt Thanks Matt. I have to be in the airport in 4 hours, and I'm still wondering if I've packed everything.

Will try to take photos. Once again - need to emphasize my poor photography skills. ;p

And oh yes, it's a direct flight. Thank goodness.
