Can I just remind you all to PLEASE, PLEASE email me when you SEND your gift out to your Secret Santa and when you RECEIVE your gift.  I haven't heard back from everyone yet and I'm trying to keep track of everything.

Thank you and I hope you are enjoying the anticipation of getting your gifts and watching others get theirs.  There's no rule that says you have to wait until Christmas Day (that's up to you) but as tempted as I have been to open then, I've put them under the tree like a good girl.

Just wanted to let you all know that all e mails have gone out to let you know who you are Secret Santa to.  If you did not receive an email, please let me know at the earliest opportunity.  Happy present hunting and don't forget to let me know when you send your present out and also, when you receive yours.

Thank you all :)

Just wanted to let you know (especially those following the blog via e mail) that you have all been sorted and you now all have a Secret Santa.  For those that didn't reply within the deadline, I'm sorry but you have been taken off the list. 

I have the information and now it's just a case of e mailing it out to all of you which I will do AS SOON AS I CAN (bearing in mind, I have to fit in work and a visit from the parents).  If you have any questions about minimum cost, if you have to provide a tracking number (you do) then please consult the FAQ section of this blog otherwise e mail me and I will provide you with an answer. 

Let the present buying begin!!!!

I've been getting a lot of questions lately and I'd just like to point out that there is a FAQ page on this blog which should answer them all.  If there is anything that is NOT included on that list, then please feel free to email me otherwise I'd love it if you looked at the FAQ as it takes a lot of time to answer individually :(

To all the participants who have NOT yet responded to my email, I'm going to have to give you a deadline of the next 24 hours I'm afraid as time is running out and we need to get this show on the road!  If I don't hear from you in the time period specified, I will assume you are no longer interested and take you off the list.  If that is the case, I'd rather you just told me but either way, that's cool.

Emails have gone out


Just a quick update to tell you that an e mail has gone out (asking about preferences) and so if you have not received this, please let me know as soon as you can.  As we're running out of time now, PLEASE PLEASE PLEASE reply to the e mail as soon as you can so I can start getting you all matched up and you can start present hunting!!!

If you need to pull out for whatever reason, NOW is the time to do it but please let me know as soon as you can.  

Thank you to everyone taking part :)

Sign ups

Whilst I'm hoping you will follow the blog, THIS is where you sign up to take part in UKYABB Secret Santa - just leave your name and your blog address (make sure you type in the "http" part). By signing up, you are registering your interest and still have an opportunity to back out at this stage, although I'm hoping you won't.

I'm delighted to welcome you to the UKYA Book Blogger Secret Santa and I'm hoping that if you're a UK based book blogger who reads and reviews Young Adult (YA) books, you'll sign up for the Secret Santa.  This is an opportunity to exchange books and bookish gifts with another UKYA book blogger that you may or may not have met before and it might just be the only surprise under your tree this year!  This is your chance to bring some bookish sparkle into someone's life and possibly introduce them to books they haven't read before, books you thought were out of this world.  So what do you say? Do you want to take part?  I'm putting together a list of frequently asked questions (FAQ) that you can access and this should take care of anything you need to know but I've missed anything, please feel free to email me.

Let's make 2012 a special bookish Christmas and remember that the joy is in giving :)
