Spreading Holiday Cheer: Book Blogger Holiday Swap

Happy holidays, everyone!  Yes, it's that time of year and you know what that means....time is harder and harder to come by!  With the decorating, shopping, presents....the list goes on and on and alas, your online life seems to suffer.  (Sorry!)  Well, we'll just have to make each and every post count that much more!  Anywho, speaking of presents....(hehehe, gotta love this time of year...)...guess what I received on Friday?  Give up?  Let me give you a hint....you have to sign up to participate by mid November and you get to play Santa Claus to someone else as well as be a recipient of some holiday cheer! (Got it?  I knew you would...)  Yes indeed...I received my gift from by book blog buddy as assigned by......


...the Book Blogger Holiday Swap!

While the person I was assigned shall remain a mystery (for now at least....gonna make sure they received their gift and liked it too....), I will happily share my spoils.  On Friday, I received a fun little email....from Borders....with a $20 e-gift card!  (Yippeee!)  My fabulous holiday swap Santa revealed is....Book Crazy Jenn!  (Book Crazy is the name of her blog, not something I just added there.)  Thanks, Jenn!  Stop by and check out her blog when you get a chance (say, after reading my post...)...not only is the layout really something with the vivid colors and pictures, but there is some great stuff over there too!



Have you been part of the official Book Blogger Holiday Swap or perhaps participated in one of your own?  Feel free to share your tales of spreading the cheer of the holiday season in the comments! 

May all of your wishes this season come true and until next time....happy reading!
