Ho, ho, ho and stuff

A while back, I signed up for Secret Santa with Kate over at the Neverending Shelf. I revealed a few posts ago that I got a mysterious package in the mail, consisting of a book called The Comet's Curse

Yeah, that's still mysterious, as I have no idea who sent it.

But today, I thought I would take off my own santa beard and reveal myself.

I played Secret Santa to the lovely Alyssa of Teens Read and Write. Because Alyssa made the Nice list this year, I had my elves pick out two things from her wishlist, and 1 thing I thought she might like. Want to see what my elves dropped in her stocking?

On the 6th Blog of Christmas (formerly the 10th, but who's counting?)

The 12 Blogs of Christmas
On the 6th day of Christmas, Book Rat (ME!!!) gave to you...

Alright, I've teased you with it long enough. Even though this is a little sooner than planned, I guess I just couldn't wait any more. Or something like that. ;p

You may have noticed about a week's worth of "choices" posts...
It was really fun seeing everyone make their choice on what I should offer (or read next? Best cover? Who knows what you all were choosing... ;p)
So did I pick a John Green pack? Sarah Dessen?
Hmm... I decided that I didn't want to limit you in such a way. I mean, 'tis the season of something for everyone, right?
Well, I tried to include a little something for everyone, because FIVE lucky winners will get to pick a book from this nice, big stack:

In case you were keeping track, that's over 50 choices!(But how to choose?) And 5 of you are going to win your choice! You can even all pick the same book, because it's coming to you brand new!
But if I were you, I'd act quickly; there's a limited amount of time for this one!

To enter:
You must be a follower of this blog, and you must fill out the form below.
Contest runs through the end of the year.
Open internationally*!

Note: I've had a lot of people commenting that the form is cut off. To them I say: use your scroll wheel or your down arrow. The form is NOT cut off.

*as in, wherever Book Depository ships. That's just about everywhere, but if you're not sure, check this
