So much fun.  :)  I love reading everyone's wish list (I'm sure I will steal some book ideas!)  I just started today so I will look some more tomorrow.  Neat idea!

Realizing that I sent out my SS books with my name on them. I guess I don't know how to play "secret" Santa the right way!   :-X  If you change your name on the email, does that work, or does it still give it away when the other person gets it?

ETA:  Thank you, Secret Santa!!!!  I am so excited!  ;D

Changing your name can make it completely anonymous.  The email to the recipient is from Amazon, so they have no clue if you change the name!
A book, I think, is very like a little golden door.
That takes me into places where I've never been before.
It leads me into fairyland or countries strange and far.
And, best of all, the golden door always stands ajar. - Adelaide Love

oh, and folks, just a reminder to take the books you've gotten off of your wishlist.

and remember to accept the gifts so the senders can be sure you got 'em.

Hmmmm....weird.  Since you have the option to show "Unpurchased" I would have thought gifts one has accepted would be removed.  Also interesting, a book I received as a gift and is on my Kindle isn't shown that I own it when I click on it on my wishlist...

I'll go with the hot cocoa flavor but the others  :o

Also remember that we can't gift free books, nor can we gift pre-orders...
