Santa in the Summer
Santa in the Summer | Jay Schleifer
143 posts | 2 read | 3 to read
Everyone knows what Santa Claus does in the winter, but what does he do the rest of the year? It's been a mystery ... until now. Kids everywhere will delight as this laugh-filled book details the ways Santa might spend his off time. Yes, he pursues lots of leisure activities, but he also does good in other ways than just delivering toys once a year. We'll follow him as he lounges at the beach, goes sightseeing around the world, enjoys a barbecue at home with family and friends, and so much more. Yet he also finds time to volunteer at a local charity. Here's a chance for your child to see Santa as he or she has never seen him before. It's the perfect Christmas gift!

I caved last night & signed up for #summersolsticebookexchange. The #santagoespostal exchanges are my favorite & it‘s been awhile since I did one. Now to make sure I‘m posting regularly, since I‘ve been bad about that lately. 🤓

This is the LAST day to sign up for the legendary @BookishMarginalia ‘s iconic book exchange!

I‘d participate, but I‘m in chaotic limbo right now 😩😢🙈.

The rest of her post:

...this swap is not for you. That‘s ok.

Matches will be sent late April. Litsy-stalking, buying, and wrapping in May. Mail by May 30. Open on June 21!

Link to form: https://forms.gle/3XGGCBu9WrH8SEgx8

AmyG Hope the chaotic limbo ends soon. 3mo
Lynnsoprano I totally get it. I hate to miss one of @BookishMarginalia ‘s swaps, but there are so many unread books in this house, I can‘t in good conscience add to the pile. 3mo

Soubhiville @BookishMarginalia I just wanted to check in about this and absolutely do not mean to rush you or be a pest!!! Next weekend is the local bookstore crawl for independent bookstore day, and I was wondering if maybe I might be able to shop for my match while I‘m crawling to support the stores... (wish there was a way to send you a PM instead of posting here. 🤷‍♀️) 3mo
BookishMarginalia @Soubhiville I‘m working on matches this weekend and plan to send them next week, so yes, you should be able to do that 🤓 3mo
Soubhiville @BookishMarginalia yay! Of course if it doesn‘t work out that I have a match by then, I‘m sure I can find other excuses to buy books! 3mo
Endowarrior21 Okay I am glad I did not miss that email 3mo

If you do a Halloween one then I will definitely be interested as I hope to have a different job as I can't stay in my current one with my hours being cut, so I should be able to afford to do a decent exchange. I know I have expressed interest before in this but that was before they did this to me. 😢 4mo

BookFreakOut @FictionFox Did you see the answer about the paper? ⬆️ 2y

@TerriGreen is a gift giving WIZARD!!!!! When the 1st package yielded Sorcerer to the Crown I knew this was going to be a next-level box and IT WAS. Haven't read these but several are from my longtime TBR! I've always wanted Illuminae in HC for the translucent jacket. Plus, ladybugs are an inside joke for my hubby and me, and we use magnetic notepads for groceries every week. LOVE IT ALL. 😍📚😁

@Peddler410 included a card with some fun clues about the books she chose for me. This one, I'm pretty sure is The Circle since the clue in the card was book turned into movie and the clue on the book says set in Silicon Valley. We'll find out when I open it in a minute! #SummerSantaGoesPostal

erinreads How fun! ..... she says as she furiously writes down everyone's ideas to steal for the next book exchange! 😂 2y
JoeStalksBeck That's awesome! 2y
Jinjer @erinreads I'm doing that too! Writing down the clever ideas and bookish gifts that I would never come up with myself. 2y
Peddler410 I wish I could take credit for this one, but I bought it that way from a local book store near me. 2y

Jess7 I've heard good things about 2y
monkeygirlsmama This is Where it Ends is such a good book. 2y
Redjewel_7734 @kylienoele you picked perfectly! Thank you so much 😊 2y
Redjewel_7734 @Jess7 @monkeygirlsmama I can't wait to dive into it! 2y
Jess7 It's on my #tbr list @monkeygirlsmama - it was big library read back in October 2016 and of course when I was ready to read it - it was no longer a big library read so I waited on hold forever until I finally gave in and bought the kindle version from Amazon. But now that I bought it I haven't gotten around to reading it yet. I'm the worst at putting books I own on the back burner and opting to read books I get from the library! 🙄😂 2y
monkeygirlsmama @Jess7 I understand that completely, mostly cause I'm guilty of it myself. 😜 2y
Redjewel_7734 @Jess7 I'm completely guilty of that myself! Just the TBR represented by my owned unread booms is a Mt Everest & often overwhelming, yet I can't resist the temptation to add to it 😱 But ya know as long as I keep tackling it one amazing story at a time, I'm ok with that 😁 2y
Jess7 @Redjewel_7734 same here - I know I do it but I just can't help myself lol - I suppose the one good thing in terms of clutter and space is that all of my TBR books are either on my kindle or on hold or a wish list with my library - I only have a handful of physical books sitting around TBR and those are all from the library so they don't occupy space for very long 😜😁 2y
Redjewel_7734 @Jess7 you're one up on me...I have to confess I'm a book hoarder. I do love owning my own not so little library. 2y
mjdowens I am definitely a book whore...I mean hoarder😂😂 2y
