Cool! Nothing for me but congrats to everyone who got one today.
This was my first year participating in this and it was fun. One thing I might've done wrong. It looks like if you give someone a book, you use an alias/made up name as the gifter. I will remember this (unless someone tells me I'm wrong about this).

You can use your own name or an alias.  I've done both.  It's entirely up to you!   

Happy New Year everyone!

Yeah, I'd say the only "right" way is the way that gives you the most enjoyment. :)

Ditto to that.

I used a made up name, because it was part of the fun, since the character I used comes from my books, and she did give everyone presents on christmas day. Except 1, where I hit send too fast, and it went off under my name instead.

All good fun.  :D

Thank you to happy sunday for The Glass Magician!  Happy new year too!

It's busy season once again for me, but I got to finish The Peddler's Road that Gray Beard Santa gave me last Christmas.

I enjoyed this retelling of the Pied Piper.  Here is a link to my review https://simplyctrocks.blogspot.com/2017/01/the-peddlers-road-where-hansel-and.html for those interested in Middle Grade books.

I am still saving up moolah so that I can hand out gifts... likely in the spring.  But thank you to all who have been so generous over the holidays!

Just thought this might be interesting to some here. You can now see everything you gifted in the normal manage your content sections. Its in the very left drop down, second to last. Past the collections, KU, prime. You can then sort on the next drop down from redeemed or pending. Much easier to have it all in one place than having to dig in the account sections. Its also easier to use and one can see right away if everything was claimed. So if there was an issue its easier to figure it out.
