Book Blogger Hop – December 22 – 28, 2017

About the Book Blogger Hop

The Book Blogger Hop was originally created by Jennifer from Crazy-For-Books in March 2010 and ended on December 31, 2012. With Jennifer’s permission, Ramblings of a Coffee Addicted Writer relaunched the meme on February 15, 2013.

Each week the hop will start on a Friday and end on Thursday. There will be a weekly prompt featuring a book related question. The hop’s purpose is to give bloggers a chance to follow other blogs, learn about new books, befriend other bloggers, and receive new followers to your own blog.

This week’s question:

Have you ever asked co-workers to give you a book or B&N gift card if they got your name for a Secret Santa gift exchange? If so, did you get whet you asked for? (submitted by Maria @ A Night’s Dream of Books)


I have when we include a list of gift suggestions. And yes, I have received a book and/or a Barnes & Noble gift card. Always a great gift!


What about you?

    When I retired, I got a B&N gift card because they knew I loved to read. Had to spend extra money in order to get the two books I wanted. I still have them And that was three years ago.

  2. Very nice on what you received.

    Have a great weekend.

  3. Folks always learned to give me either See’s Candy or GCs for books.

    I don’t have co-workers..I’m a self employed pet care provider, but my clients make sure to give me Amazon gift!

  5. You are SO lucky!!!! As you know from my post, in two of the Secret Santa gift exchanges I participated in, the people who got my name KNEW that I DESPERATELY wanted a book, and gave me something else THEY thought would be “more appropriate”. GRRRRR!!!

    I just found out that the blog The Broke and the Bookish does a Secret Santa exchange every year. Of course, the participants ONLY get books!! So I will DEFINITELY join in next year!! Lol.

    Thanks for commenting on my BBH post!! Happy New Year!! <3 🙂

Let's chat!
