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. Dewey, a very involved book blogger, promoted the event in 2007 and helped co-host in 2008, before her sudden passing in November of that year.
I participated in my first swap last year and it was a very rewarding experience. I met a new blogger and got some great bookish gifts!
