Yay, I love this mug!! Hey @Litsy - do you know if it‘s dishwasher safe? I assume so but it doesn‘t say.

Alwaysbeenaloverofbooks Love it! Where did you get it? 5d
alisonrose @Alwaysbeenaloverofbooks I won it from Litsy! For being one of the first people to sign up for SantaThing last year 😊 5d

Thank you @Cathythoughts what wonderful book gifts! The covers alone are stunning! I already know I like David Mitchell so I‘m keen to read this one - and the Shadowplay book looks right up my alley! 1878 London, The Lyceum Theatre? I am so up for that!
Thank you so much for your kindness and generosity. I hope you have a marvellous Christmas!

Cathythoughts You‘re welcome Paula ! I‘ve just started ShadowPlay myself .... so far so good 🤞🏻. Happy Christmas friend XXX 1mo

Shopping Scavenger Hunt: ❤

Can't explain it but this random Santa head just makes me laugh. It's only a head connected to nothing. . . Poor Santa!

A quick reminder for SantaThing participants who haven't picked yet: SantaThing closes 12pm on Monday!

If you're having trouble coming up with gift ideas, post a comment here with the link/id and I'm sure others will flock to help!

Litsy [EDIT TO REMOVE!] (edited) 2mo
Gillyreads I though I had done mine? 2mo
bellprincess6 @Gillyreads you probably do, but this is just a general reminder. Probably if you have like an extra dollar or two you‘re tagged (edited) 2mo

Lynnsoprano I did mine Friday. Did something go wrong? 2mo
Special_K @Lynnsoprano if there is a green check mark when you look at your santee, you did it correctly 2mo
Gillyreads @Lynnsoprano you‘re probably fine. I had a quick look at it. Seems like @Litsy has tagged the people who haven‘t had a gift selected for them rather than people who haven‘t finished. 2mo
Lynnsoprano @Gillyreads @Special_K Thanks. I went and checked and saw the green check. I‘d had trouble when I first tried, it kept saying I wasn‘t signed in. So my first thought was that something had gone wrong. 2mo
Born.A.Reader Wait I picked the gifts for mine. Did it not go through? 2mo
Booksnchill I don‘t understand what any of this means- I signed up, paid now what is needed? 2mo
dariazeoli Hm, I picked my books out and my Santee is green checked. Maybe this list is reversed? 2mo
ShelfAddiction I picked gifts for mine days ago. I can email a screen shot. 2mo
Soubhiville @Booksnchill santathing works differently from Litsy swaps... you have to go through LibraryThing to purchase gifts for your swap recipient. There should be directions there to who your Santee is and which seller they want their books chosen through. Also all the directions to do the book choosing. 2mo
Booksnchill @Soubhiville thanks- that Library thing on the web was my issue- I never use the website and had no idea we had to go there to see who we pick for!!! Glad I saw this post! Whew! 2mo
KatieDid927 Nope, did mine days ago. If there was an issue with my picks there was a better way to communicate that. 2mo
KatieDid927 @Booksnchill Yeah they never actually properly notified us when the matches were picked. 2mo
Betterthanasharpstickintheeye Oh sorry I was confused how to do it. 2mo
Juliwyant I picked my gifts already using the page link you put up before....it shows the books I picked, the total, etc. is there another step I missed??

....I went and checked. There is a green checkmark.....so not a straggler.
(edited) 2mo
Litsy Sorry for the panic @Gillyreads @Lynnsoprano @Born.A.Reader @dariazeoli @ShelfAddiction @KatieDid927 @Juliwyant . As someone guessed, the data was essentially reversed. Anyway, everyone has until noon tomorrow. 2mo
julesG When I was looking for books for my Santee Amazon.com reminded me that there'll be a 5$ discount on book orders of over $20. I was wondering if I should have picked with that discount in mind. 2mo
JodiPM I have 2 cents left on mine 😂 2mo
Litsy @julesG Unless you've seen something on Amazon that I have not, I think this is a misunderstanding of shipping charges. If the order is a low value amount (under $25 for Amazon), we add shipping on--you'll see it as you order. If over, we don't. This corresponds to free shipping criteria. It's not an order discount. 2mo
julesG @Litsy Thanks! That's probably it. Works differently here in Germany. 2mo
LMJenkins @Litsy is telling me I‘m tagged twice in this post but I don‘t see my name AND I have picked my gifts several days ago. (edited) 1mo
julesG @LMJenkins I think the tags were removed by Litsy because you were tagged by mistake. Tagging is strange these days. I get notifications on my phone but when I check Litsy there is no notification. When I check the Litten's post I was supposed to be tagged in I have indeed been tagged. 1mo
LMJenkins Okay, I just hope it worked okay....😳 1mo
Tertubotn Picked and sent a while ago thru amazon - I hope it worked.. 😬 1mo
Tertubotn I‘m super confused. I picked the titles here on litsy and thought that was it - do I need to set up a librarything profile to finish this?!? -which I did, btw. Am I supposed to be looking at the desktop version of Librarything? I‘m completely at a loss. Better instructions would have been helpful. :( @Litsy (edited) 1mo
ShelfAddiction When should we expect a package? I'm heading out of town for Christmas this weekend, so I want to know if I should be expecting it before I go. Thanks! 1mo
Lizthompson07 I never got a notification of being matched! So sorry for not doing any picking but I completely missed this. 1mo

If you signed up for SantaThing, be sure to go to https://www.litsy.com/web/santathing to find out who you're picking for!

Picking closes Monday at 12pm. Good luck and have fun.

If you need help, ask people in a comment here. People can leave comments on your Santees entry, and they can't see them until the gifts arrive.

Tagging all participants in the comments.

emz711 whoo! 2mo
CBee @Litsy I‘ve picked the gifts for my Santee, and it‘s showing gifts added. Is there anywhere to save that or am I all set? 2mo
BethM Thanks for the tag- I was waiting for an email 🤦‍♀️ 2mo
BethM Ok guys I‘m super confused- how do I see who I‘m picking for? I click on the link and just get the master list? @TimSpalding 2mo
TimSpalding @BethM You need to sign in to Litsy web. If you're signed in, the list will start with YOUR “santee.“ 2mo
LiljaPleasant @Litsy if you have 30cents left of the budget... What happens? 2mo
plemmdog I‘m still confused. Somehow I was expecting an email. I‘m also not a member of Library Thing. So, if I‘m interpreting this correctly, I click on the Entry tab, and the first person at the top of the list of hundreds is the gifted whom I‘ve been assigned? 2mo
shanaqui @plemmdog You want to click on “See your 1 Santee“. I've done a screenshot showing it: https://snipboard.io/oJvjKq.jpg 2mo
shanaqui @plemmdog You can also see it at the top of the “current entries“, under the heading “You Pick For“. But you need to be signed in! :) 2mo
shanaqui Everything I think up eats up most of the budget already so I can only get one book! >(

If anyone has recs for this Santee, let me know! https://www.litsy.com/web/santathingitem/255
CBee @shanaqui check and see if she has any of the Akata series on her TBR; if not, they are SUPER good, middle grade and witchy (lots of cool Nigerian lore). Really anything by Nnedi Okorafor could fit her tastes I think. 2mo
CBee @TimSpalding I've picked the gifts for my Santee, but don't see a way to save. Am I all set? Thanks! 2mo
Kelican17 I picked books, but there is no “confirm” or “save” button?? What next? 2mo
Bibliotekate @CBee As long as you've clicked to “Add gift“ after filling out each book's info, you're all set! 2mo
Bibliotekate @Kelican17 No confirm or save necessary: as long as you've clicked “Add gift“ after filling out the info for each book, you're all set. 2mo
Kelican17 @Bibliotekate thank you! 2mo
plemmdog @shanaqui thanks! For some reason my giftee only shows up in the web browser and not the app, but I found him and am delighted. 2mo
CBee @Bibliotekate yay, thank you! :) 2mo
Litsy I've added green check marks for whether or not the entry is done. (Done is defined as having less than $6 left to spend. Of course, it's hard to get close.) If you're minded, consider contributing some comments to the ones that aren't done yet—the Santas may need help! 2mo
Sapphire I am confused. I don't see who I am supposed to pick for.... 2mo
Sapphire I am so relieved I figured that out in time!!! 2mo
Booksnchill @Sapphire i connot find that either? I never got an alert- how do I know who I am picking for??? 2mo
shanaqui @Booksnchill You need to be on the web version of Litsy and signed in. Then go to https://www.litsy.com/web/santathing and the person you're picking for should be at the top, under the heading “You Pick For“. :) 2mo

Apparently matches went out yesterday. Unfortunately, that information did not reach me.


I did a bit of digging around and found my Santee (no info on budget and which shop yet). Unfortunately, again, I also found out who's my Secret Santa. Not sure whether this was intentional, but the info is on Library Thing for all to see @TimSpalding @Litsy


Born.A.Reader I didn't get notification either. How do we know where to pick books or how much? 2mo
julesG @Born.A.Reader I don't know either. 2mo
dariazeoli I don‘t have a Santee yet. Hm... 2mo
See All 20 Comments
julesG @dariazeoli Have you checked the link that I've posted? 2mo
dariazeoli @julesG yes. But I tried to comment on my post and it says I‘m not logged in. Aaaand I just realized why! I‘m in @kindlitsy on the web. D‘oh! Back to the web 😂 2mo
julesG @dariazeoli 😂😂 2mo
LiljaPleasant Thank you for sharing! Doesn't work on my phone. Tells me I'm not logged in eventhough when I go to my profile it says I am... Have to check on my computer later... 2mo
julesG @LiljaPleasant You might have to log into the website, too. 2mo
LiljaPleasant @julesG Now I tried on my computer... Logging on to the mainpage (litsy.com) and going further to santathing etc... If I want to go on and order the gift I am told I'm not logged in... Or which website did you mean? (Sorry for asking you... ^^' Don't know who else to ask)
julesG @LiljaPleasant That's strange. You should be able to see your Santee when logged into your Litsy account on the website (litsy.com) 2mo
jenniferw88 @julesG @Born.A.Reader @dariazeoli @LiljaPleasant if you log into the website now it tells you website and budget. 2mo
julesG @jenniferw88 Thanks! 2mo
LiljaPleasant @jenniferw88 Thanks! But it still tells my "not logged in" when pressing add gift... ? I might have to try later... 2mo
Lynnsoprano @julesG @LiljaPleasant @jenniferw88 I just saw this this morning, and I‘m having the same issues. Logged into Litsy on my laptop, got to the Santathing page and found my Santee, budget, store, etc. When I tried to add a gift, “not logged in.” And that‘s all there is on the page. Ugh!!! 2mo
Allylu Me too. Please tag me if you resolve this issue. Thanks! 2mo
dariazeoli Hopefully we‘ll get a longer span to buy since there are still issues 2mo
Dvd I emailed about the issues and went back. All is apparently working now. 2mo
Sapphire Thank you for posting that screen shot, my link does not have a see Santee button 2mo
julesG @Sapphire Oh No! Make sure you are logged into your Litsy account on the website. If that doesn't help, contact the folks at Litsy/Library Thing. 2mo
Sapphire @julesg thank you!! That was it. I had been trying on my phone but on the website I can see it! Whew! Just in time. 2mo

Have you joined up for SantaThing yet? It‘s the easiest Xmas swap I‘ve found, you put your name down with a list of genres you like & use PayPal to pay from $15-50USD. After the cutoff on Dec 2nd you get matched to another recipient, choose books for them in your price bracket & santathing does the rest, including ordering & sending them. I think it‘s a great idea!🤶🏻🎅🏻👍

Karkar This sounds like fun! 2mo
Caroline2 This is a great idea. Is it open to UK users do you know?? 🤔 2mo
vumblereads Love it! 2mo
