Just a reminder...

The last posting dates for Christmas are right around the corner (the 18th I believe for the UK but check that) and I haven't received notification from all of you that you've sent your parcel out yet.  PLEASE don't forget to let me know that you've sent YOUR parcel and received your parcel from your secret santa.  

Thanks everyone for making UKYABB Secret Santa a success this year, have a brilliant Christmas and let's see how many of you leave your Secret Santa present until Christmas Day ;)

Emails sent

All information has gone out via email.  If anyone hasn't received their email or has any problems, please let me know.  Oh, and don't forget to email me when you have sent your package out AND when you receive yours so I can keep track of everything.

I had wanted to get this information out a little sooner than I have but life gets in the way as always!  We can still do this though if you get your skates on ;)

Problems signing up

Time is running out to sign up for UKYABB Secret Santa and I understand that some people are having problems signing up.  I'm not entirely sure what the problem is but I would suggest trying a different browser and see if that works.  If not, then please leave a comment on the SIGN UPS post and I will add you manually from there.

Sign Ups Christmas 2013

I'm delighted to be hosting the second year running of UKYA Book Blogger Secret Santa and I'm hoping that if you took part last year, you'll sign up again and if you didn't...then please sign up!  If you're a UK based book blogger who reads and reviews Young Adult (YA) books and/or New Adult books (I'm adding that this year) then you are eligible to sign up.  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.

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. 

Let's make 2013 a special bookish Christmas and remember that the joy is in giving :)

Christmas time is coming...

It's that time of year again when I start thinking about the next UKYABB Secret Santa sign ups.  I know it might seem a little early, especially since we need to get Halloween out of the way first, but this takes a lot of planning and organisation so I figure the earlier we start, the better.  I'm hoping we get as good a participation as last year with no hiccups and I know I can't wait to get started.  I'll let you in on a little secret....I've already bought one present for my Secret Santa.  It's a generic present so I don't need to know who I'm getting and I'm sure whoever the lucky recipient is, they will like it ;)

Sign ups are coming.  I'll keep you posted.

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 :)
