With only 59 days left until Christmas, it seemed like the appropriate time to start talking about presents!
Pure Textuality is hosting an event this year called Bows & Books! Think Secret Santa only nationwide instead of just in your little office pool.
Here’s how it works:
You register using the form below. This form will also be located in our menu across the top of the page from now until we close registration. ALL REGISTRATION INFO IS USED FOR THIS EVENT ONLY.
The form will ask for the following information:
Top 10 Wish List Books
Registration will close on Friday November 16th.
Once registration is closed, we will then pull random names and assign them to other random registrants. Everyone who registers will get a name to buy a book for. You will receive their registration information in an email from Pure Textuality. You only need to buy one book for your secret santa person but you are allowed to buy as many as you’d like.
Bows & Books is open to US and Canadian residents only due to the cost of shipping. I know we have a lot of overseas readers and I am working out a plan to make that work for next year but unfortunately, we can’t do it this year. I do have all of you in mind though! Just need to work throughout the year to plan out a system that will work for registrants on the other side of the globe.
To make sure your package reaches its destination in time, all packages must be in the mail by December 10th.
NEW AND USED BOOKS ACCEPTED! If you are sending a book, it doesn’t have to be brand new. However, if you are sending a used book, please send one that is in “like new” condition.
IF YOU DO NOT INTEND TO SEND BOOKS TO YOUR BOWS & BOOKS PERSON, PLEASE DON’T REGISTER. That kind of puts a bummer on the whole event when you find out that some people didn’t get their book(s).
Jena participated in something like this last year called the Broke and Bookish Secret Santa and thought it would be a cool idea to host here. If you’re interested in participating in multiple secret santas, you may want to check their site as well to see if they’re hosting one this year.
