Thanks to a fun post written by Fyrefly, I found out about SantaThing, a wonderful Secret Santa type of book exchange facilitated by LibraryThing. I received my SantaThing books yesterday and I’m so exicted! I got Charity Girl by Georgette Heyer and The Dress Lodger by Sheri Holman. I am loving Georgette Heyer these days (review of The Conqueror coming soon), so Charity Girl is right up my alley. I haven’t heard of The Dress Lodger before, but it sounds really good. Many thanks to my Santa.:)
I also had fun playing SantaThing, too. I selected The Monsters of Templeton by Lauren Groff and The Curious Case of Benjamin Button by F. Scott Fitzgerald. She likes a combination of literary and historical fiction, so The Monsters of Templeton was the first thing that came to my mind. To fulfill her literary fiction needs, I thought the combination of F. Scott Fitzgerald and a current Brad Pitt movie would hit the spot. I’m looking forward to reading that myself next year.
I think that SantaThing was a huge success and I’m looking forward to participating again next year. For the LibraryThingers out there, did you participate? If so, tell me all about your loot!
