Ready to join the gift giving fun? Great!

Since Christmas is near I’ve already started! I signed up for the Book Bloggers Holiday Swap as you can see from my side bar. Do you want to know more about it?

The holiday swap is a way for book bloggers to connect and celebrate the holiday spirit by sharing gifts. It’s done secret Santa style; all of the participants are randomly assigned a blogger to send a gift to, and these assignments are kept secret until the gift has been delivered. So no one knows who their gift is coming from!

The swap was started two years ago, in the winter of 2007, by Ana.

Since the deadline for international expeditions is  November 30th, I’ve prepared my little parcel and sent it just today. I can’t say where it is bound but I can reveal what I’ve chosen to send to my secret Blogger mate.

1. Several typically Italian bookmarks ( I love and collect them)

2. A brochure in several languages of my ancient little town

3. Two best –sellers (paperbacks) I loved reading; gently used, as asked by the organizers

I hope she  (Yes, it is a she!) will like the gifts! Now I’ll start waiting for mine. I’m so curious to know what and who from my gift will be!

What a nice package you assembled. I sent off mine last week before Thanksgiving, and received a package from my Santa today.

I think collecting bookmarks is such a nice habit :)
