I participated in LibraryThing's SantaThing this year, for the first time. You pay a certain amount and another LibraryThing member is assigned to pick out books for you.
Here is what my person picked out for me:
Miss Buncle's Book by D. E. Stevenson
The Name of War: King Philip's War and the Origins of American Identity by Jill LaPore
Philip Hall Likes Me, I Reckon Maybe by Bette Greene
The Perilous Gard by Elizabeth Marie Pope
Flesh and Spirit by Carol Berg
There was a glitch in the system and I didn't get to pick out books for someone else. But, there is always next year!
I'm excited to dive into these books!
