Second Annual Booksgiving!

Hello and welcome to the second annual Booksgiving Day!  What is “Booksgiving Day?”  It’s day to celebrate the joy of reading and giving and llamas, but without any actual llamas unless you’ve brought your own.

Basically, last February I wanted to thank you guys for all of your support by giving out 30 copies of Furiously Happy, which I did, but then everyone else was like, “I WANT TO GIVE BOOKS TO PEOPLE TOO” so we set up a day where you could ask for one book from a stranger using an Amazon wishlist and if someone wanted to give it to you they would.  And they did.  Some people asked for a book for their child.  Some asked for a book to escape life for a bit.  Some asked just to have a reminder that they exist and matter, and then they went back in and bought a book for someone else.  And people found friends (and really good book recommendations) by looking at the particular book that each person really wanted.  And it was lovely.

So today we’re doing it again and if you want to ask for a book (or give a book) the details are all here.  I’m giving out 30 of my own books for those of you who are part of the community but haven’t been able to buy one, but you can pick any book at all and leave it in the comments and I’ll probably give out others once I hit my 30.  Furiously Happy is out in paperback today, Let’s Pretend This Never Happened is still in print and YOU ARE HERE: An Owner’s Manual for Dangerous Minds comes out in a few weeks (tour info coming soon!) so those are the 30 books I’m giving out first.

Here are the rules:

  1.  If you’re in a rough place and need a book to transport you somewhere else make A BRAND NEW wish list with nothing on it but the book you want.  (Exception: If you have a kid who needs a book you can add that too.)
  2. Here’s how you make a wish list:  Under “Accounts and Lists” on the right, top side of Amazon select “Create a list”.  Choose “Wish list” and name it something like “The book I really need right now” and choose “Public”.  Then click “Create list”.  Now add a book to your list by going to the book and clicking the “add to list” button on the bottom right of that page.  Make sure you assign it to the new wishlist.  Now here’s the most important thing that everyone forgets to do.  You have to assign a shipping address to that specific wish list or it won’t go to you.  EVERY new wishlist has to be assigned an address or you won’t get your stuff.  So click on your wish list and click on “public” and it’ll take you to “List settings”.  Click “view details” and where it says “shipping address” add yours.  (Your city will be shown to others, but not your full address.)  Then save changes.  Now leave a comment with a link to your wish list.  Click here for my sample wish list so you’ll know what one looks like.  I have about 20 books listed on it for inspiration if you don’t know exactly what you want.  In your comment say which book you want in case someone specifically wants to buy you that book.  Also, if you’re not in America put that in the comment so we can match people better by location and not have crazy shipping fees.   Feel happy.
  3. Here’s how you buy a book for a stranger.  Click on their link.  Choose a book.  Select their name so it goes to their address.  If it doesn’t give you the option of picking their name it means they didn’t add a shipping address so delete what’s in your cart and go to the next person.  Send a story to someone in need.  Feel happy.

The only rule is that this is just for books.  No gift cards or clothes or anything else because it gets out of hand really quickly.  Just a simple book to take you away from the world and help you find new ones.

And as always, thank you.  Thank you for supporting my words and listening and passing them on to others.  I’m in the middle of writing book 4 right now and you’re giving me strength to keep writing even when I doubt myself.  I owe you one.  Or 30.

UPDATED: Here are screen shots of what you should see while making a wishlist and add a shipping destination because it’s less complicated if you have pictures to walk you through:

Create a list under “Your lists”.

 

Make it a wish list, name it and make it public.

Screen Shot 2016-02-02 at 1.40.30 PM

After you click “create list” click on the “public” button below:

Screen Shot 2016-02-02 at 1.40.53 PM

Click “view details” to add your shipping address to this wish list:

Screen Shot 2016-02-02 at 1.41.27 PM

Choose a shipping address and save changes.

Screen Shot 2016-02-02 at 1.43.02 PM

Now you’re ready to add something to your list.  Pick a book and choose the “add to list” button on bottom right side:

screen-shot-2017-02-07-at-9-05-09-am

If you have another wish list set as your default (like I always do) then you’ll need to click “move to another list.”

Screen Shot 2016-02-02 at 1.44.57 PM

Just click the list you’re going to share here.

Screen Shot 2016-02-02 at 1.45.28 PM

Now go to the wish list and copy the link and then paste it into the comments.  Done!  There might be a better way of doing it but that’s how I do it.

PS.  If you click on a wish list that says it’s empty that’s because the book has already been bought for them.  🙂  That is a very good thing.

PPS.  I love you guys.  Now I’m off to buy books.

All of your books give me great insight (I’m a school counselor- so it helps me with my students) and lots of humor. Thank you for writing them! If you’re still giving out books, I would love a copy of your new book!

  26. I love that booksgiving is back again! I didn’t join in last time and promised myself I’d be brave enough too if it came around again, so this time I’m posting.

    Here’s something I’ve found over the past few months of uncertainty and turmoil out there – that spending some time with nature is just the best salve of all, and so I made a list of the birds and nature books that are in keeping with that. Books that you can escape into and escape into nature at the same time. Warm, cosy, inspiring books that make you want to be doing something to help those wild creatures we share our lives with, you know?

    Anyway, before I ramble on even more, I think this is my list link : https://www.amazon.co.uk/gp/registry/wishlist/38M3HS1WI820O/

    That’s a UK Amazon address, as I’m British. If its any help, imagine me thanking you in a British accent 😀

  40. FYI to those buying for others, double check that your shopping cart on Amazon is empty first. I almost sent a replacement shower head filter, guitar strings, a five month supply of foundation, and an alarm clock to a stranger. Decided just to send a book instead.

    (I almost did the same thing. Except it was for copy paper. They would have been confused, I think. Same thing if you try to buy something for someone but they don’t have an address, make sure you delete what you had in your cart or it will be sent to the next person you go to. You’ll probably notice it when you check out like I do, but a reminder is always good. 🙂 ~ Jenny)

  74. Jenny said this book is hilarious. I need a little hilarity in my life right now. It’s title is Unmentionable: A Victorian Guide to Sex, Marriage and Manners. I hope it’s okay that I asked for the kindle addition. It’s easier for me to read when I can enlarge the font.

    I can probably afford to buy a book for myself but I’ve been pretty stressed about politics and the state of the world and knowing that there are people out there who care enough about strangers to want to do a little something to make them happy would go a long way to restoring my faith in the world. I fully intend to buy a book for someone else!

  87. About a year ago we had the first Booksgiving and it was an absolutely amazing experience to receive books (BOOKS!) from strangers; I felt so, dunno…seen? comforted? supported?

    At that time it was about 6 months ago my partner of 12 years had died; I can’t believe that sunday was the 18 month anniversary of her death. It still feels as fresh as it did last year.
    Through Booksgiving I received my first books about grief; poems and stories from people about their own losses. It helped make things more real, which was horrible but good at the same time.

    A lot is happening right now; i’ve been in 3 days-a-week intensive group therapy for about 8 months now, had an inpatient stay for 2 weeks in january. It’s all one big struggle, often.
    But there are things that keep me going, coming to this blog is one thing, finding like-minded people who KNOW, and having a good laugh at the same time.
    Laughing, we need to keep laughing don’t we? (Group therapy is not a bad place for laughing actually. Who knew?)

    And reading. Sometimes it’s so hard to be able to read because I just can’t concentrate and am too stressed out, but in the end I always get back into my books.
    Books make me happy, always. And that’s worth a LOT.

    I can’t really afford to buy them very often, so thank goodness for second hand books and libraries!
    I don’t NEED books, I guess, but then again; I do.
    Because of happiness, and connection and traveling anywhere in my mind.

    I live in the Netherlands and I made my list on Amazon.co.uk; anyone with an Amazon account should be able to use it with their usual password etc. but it will be much cheaper to ship from UK compared to US.

    You rock Jenny, and so does this community. Hard.

    I wrote a whole bunch of books about Zentangle (Totally Tangled, Yoga for Your Brain) and self-publish other stuff now. I’m currently in the homestretch to getting my Masters (in Cartooning!) – so I draw comics about mental health. This summer I did one called “We Will Never Leave You – a comic interview with my Inner Demons”.

    I laugh so hard when I listen to your books! You are the first person I’ve “met” with my sense of humor and besides the depression, anxiety, introversion, etc. blah blah blah – all quite funny in themselves, of course – my mom was a pathologist and medical examiner. I not only understand the Addams Family weirdness of having body parts in jars and bags all over the house… but I literally was raised in a laboratory.

    So, if you want to trade books, or comics, or tangle cards, or doodles… :-)… all my stuff is on my Etsy site: http://www.Bumblebat.com .

  119. I don’t have a request, but do have a recommendation (other than Jenny’s books, of course). If you need a pick-me-up during this time of craziness, I really recommend TJ Klune’s The Lightning Struck Heart. It’s a light-hearted, somewhat silly book that will still touch you. The protagonist is Sam of Wilds, a wizard’s apprentice, whose two best friends are Gary, a gay hornless unicorn and Tiggy, a half-giant. There are adventures and misadventures galore. Fair warning, this is a gay fantasy/romance novel, but I recommend it to everyone! Gave out copies at Christmas to all the readers on my list.

    This is awesome.
    I´m from Argentina, and I’ve bought all your books in Kindle edition, basically because that is the only way… because of the politics here it’s very difficult to buy something from another country and actually get it. Customs, bribes, huge taxes… is impossible. And now I want to buy “You are here” and OF COURSE i want it in paperback because my husband will not understand if I start painting our Kindle’s screen with colour markers. He already disagrees with all my drawings on the walls.
    I suffer anxiety, pannic attacks, post traumatic stress, bipolar disorder and all sort of mental craps, and you books were not only amazingly helpful,but also were enlightement for others to understand me and my disorders in a better, funny, not-so-crazy-way. So, thank you for that. And for this. And for being you, wonderful all-kinds-of-crazy you.

I click on the link, then on the cover of the book and then try to choose a different address on the right side of the screen where it says “ship to”, is that wrong??

    (When you click on their wishlist don’t go to the cover of the book. Instead just click on the “Add to Cart” button beside the book on the list. Then click on the “Proceed to checkout” button that replaced the “add to cart” button. That should give you a list of shipping addresses you’ve used before, with yours being the default at the top. The person making the wishlist should be the second person listed. Usually it says “so-and-so’s gift registry”. If it doesn’t have that it usually means the person forgot to attach and address so just empty your cart and try again with a new person. ~ Jenny)

  151. Hello – I’m in Canada. I’ve only recenlty been directed to your site and books, and you are amazing, I must say. Also – this is amazing. I’ve already bought a couple of books for others, and here’s my wish list. http://a.co/aPEyYgA I’ve struggled with anxiety and depression for 20 years – I was recently on 7 weeks of sick leave (and am so thankful I’m in a job where that was even possible). Blogs like yours help so much to erase the stigma – and honestly make me laugh at myself a lot more often. Thank you.

  241. I’m not going to lie. I started a list after last year’s Booksgiving, and have been adding to it all year. Like a lot of folk, things are rough for me right now. Being on a limited income and unable to go out for another try at the working world, as if anyone wants to hire me at my age at a wage that would actually pay well enough for me to get there, blah, blah, blah. I looked over the list and do not have a current top favorite, so if someone wants to surprise me, I would be most grateful. https://www.amazon.com/gp/registry/wishlist/1OQ605AIOX1BR/ref=nav_wishlist_lists_2

  255. Hope this didn’t post twice…

    First, I want to say that I loved Booksgiving last year. It came at a time when I really needed… something. Giving felt so good. I saw all of the names, and needs and it just felt good to read all of the beautiful and sometimes heartbreaking posts. I remember the day that books came for me in the mail, and I wept. I mean sobbed at my mailbox. The feeling was so unexpected. Not because I was poor, or because I was sick, but because I just didn’t know how much I needed to know that someone gave a damn about me. It made me feel broken, and whole, and helpless, and hopeful, and beautiful. It made me give more. And made me hope for this experience again. Thank you Jenny. Thank you strangers. I hope you get what you need, and what you want, and even something unexpected.

    I am not ill, unless you count my mind. I am not financially in need. I have not experienced a recent tragedy (unless you count the state of our country). But my heart goes out to all who have. I am unbelievably anxious. And I am often sad and worried. And while I won’t drag politics into this place, I am more afraid than I have ever been. I am more active for women, and the world, and my children. I am planting more and more in my garden, because I can’t stop thinking “just in case.” My husband saved and saved to send me for a week in Scotland in March. Because I’ve never been, and always wanted to, and I have never been away from my two children for more than a weekend. Ever. Because I desperately need a break. From working, and stressing, and loving… to find myself.

    I’ve been writing a book this last year, and writing all my life, and I hope it because something great, or at least good. I work for myself, but I’m toying with going back to an office just for the security. I finished my degree. I’m trying desperately to find my way. But first I need to find myself. I’m sorry if my list (and my story) is a little lengthy, I just don’t know. Books are great for that though, aren’t they? They help you reflect, and figure it out, and answer questions that we need answers to.

Not to be crabby, because I really enjoyed the opportunity to send books to others, but wanted to mention to people requesting books – I am much more likely to send you a book if you have one or two (or an adult and child/children) than if you post a whole list. If you have a list I can’t tell if you have already received one, so I move on to someone with only one listed. Seriously, not to be a downer, actually trying to be helpful.

  306. THANK YOU FOR DOING THIS. Last year when you did it, I had just been diagnosed with early preeclampsia and told I probably wouldn’t carry the baby long enough for him to survive, and I was too frazzled to even read, I just spent my days in a ball of anxious misery. I did carry him (almost!) to term, he was born about a month early. He’s strong and healthy and perfect. I would love a copy of a book on how to incorporate the Jewish tradition of Mussar into my daily life. It’s like Jewish mindfulness, sort of? I’ve also included a couple of books of inspirational quotes for my daughter, who is 13 and having a really hard time. Her dad and step mom treat her horribly and she’s been self-harming and now she’s missing a lot of school for therapy. She needs all the help she can get. She’s a big reader, and an aspiring writer, so I included Stephan King’s “On Writing” for her as well. Any suggestions on good books for her would be appreciated, she devours YA books like they’re going out of style.

To him he’s just a kid just like all the other kids and he just wants to have friends. And he should. He’s the best little boy in the world and in any meaningful way he’s not different. Sorry got off of point for a minute there. Point is I was able to show him all the books ya’ll bought for him and say “look Alex you have friends all over the world now!” He’s so happy.

    Today I am devastated that our country’s leaders don’t value my son. A book would be a welcome distraction. https://www.amazon.com/gp/aw/ls/?ie=UTF8&lid=1XV6YUPXTZ18D

  469. I hope next year I”ll be the one buying books for others. But I can’t this year. And I’m a voracious reader, but in the last few months I’ve been too despondent to think straight, or work enough, let alone read. So I put a happy, fantasy romance-and-royals book on my list. God, it would feel nice to escape this world for a bit. (Uh, by reading. I’m not going to hurt myself. Now anyway. I don’t know if I can survive 4 years of this fury.)

    I hope you’re all doing a better job taking care of yourselves than I am.

  472. Jenny, when you replied to my post “looks like it’s already on the way,” is that because I did not put “Furiously Happy” in my wish list? I didn’t put two and two together to do that. (I for some reason imagined you autographing it and sending it out.) I’ll add it to my list now. Hopefully I am not too late!! My list link: http://a.co/bC8v21Y

    Thanks again for doing this!! 🙂

  474. I think this is the greatest idea!! I am so excited to buy a few books for people!

    Furiously Happy has saved me over and over again from very dark places. (I have even written a nice lonnnng note to Jenny on Goodreads- even though I have read her books and am therefore aware that she is the worst at checking messages. ) I am excited that I get an opportunity to brighten other people’s days a bit!

    Here is my list, I have included a few books on it, and I am not picky about which if any of them I receive- but this way there are purchasing options. I am currently working toward being more actively, furiously, happy. The books I have chosen all reflect that.

  480. I added several because a) I’d appreciate any one of them, b) varying prices to make it easier for folks and c) varying ideas in case folks want to share recommendations based on them! Like I said, I’d appreciate any one of them and would squeal in delight to get one [no kidding – my friends know]. I’ve been having to take a lot of unpaid FMLA lately while dealing with my bipolar disorder [type 2] and changing up medications, so I’ve been drowning myself in books and audiobooks that I had [audiobooks are great for when you’re getting ready in the morning, or doing weekly/monthly meal prep!]. Annnnd now that I’ve written a novel of TMI….

    I’ve recently gone through a very sudden and unexpected loss and I’m trying to find books that deal with death and grief as comfort through this process. If you have any suggestions of anything that has helped you, I would appreciate hearing them.

  491. Am I the last person to know there are swear word coloring books? I posted around 170ish I think. I put both Jenny’s books on there. I put both eBook and paperback on there because both read the same. One just doesn’t have the new book smell. I included a note saying if one version was missing it had been purchased and a thanks for taking the time to look. The limit is one book. Not trying to break the rules. If one gets purchased will empty the list of other book. Thanks for taking the time to look.

  510. As an English teacher in a low-income, urban district where we just ran out of paper for the year, I cannot tell you how excited my students were last year to receive new books that they had actual interest in. Booksgiving made a huge difference in my classroom, and it definitely helped my students in ways I didn’t know it could. They’d actually stay after school to look through my library and borrow books.

    This year, students have been requesting me to request books that help them feel better about themselves, especially since the election. Politics aside, my students are lacking self-worth this year. I’ve been working on an Amazon wishlist to expand my library with books that can help them. If anyone wishes to help some teenagers find themselves in books, it’d be truly appreciated.

    I look forward to making someone else’s day like Booksgiving made mine last year. Thank you for doing this again. It really does save lives. ❤

    I was all excited for booksgiving thinking this year I could do the purchasing. Instead after a complicated pregnancy and delivery and realizing my insurance isn’t so great I now find my self with several thousands of dollars in medical bills and 10 weeks of unpaid maternity leave :/ life keeps on handing me lemons, I wish it would at least hand me limes so I could make a margarita. So at any rate, instead I find myself making a wish list this year. There is an item for me and one for my daughter as well as she’s been having a tough time with mean girls at school. https://www.amazon.com/gp/registry/wishlist/3M8UHMNPICT2L/ref=cm_wl_huc_view

Deaths, suicides, suicide attempts, betrayal of good friends, health problems…I’ve barely been able to face the world. Words give me something to hold onto in the darkness that has been slowly consuming me for years.

  594. Everyone has posted such heartfelt stories, and it has emboldened me to share mine.

    I’ve always collected things – grief of losing too many friends WAY too young, guilt, too many obligations, diagnoses, later psychotropic pharmaceuticals for bipolar disorder and anxiety. I teach, and this year got the better of me. Now I am (negatively) collecting my sick days in the form of FMLA, after I ended up in the hospital with a 4 day panic attack, giving scary answers to scary questions about things like suicide. I tried to go back to work, and was vomiting both before and after work because of the anxiety, something I’ve done since I was a kid when the anxiety was running way too high. It was time to step away.

    I’d like to collect something positive now. I’ve always been a reader. It’s been my escape since I was a kid, when I would hide from the world in my closet and read, because of social anxiety.

    I’d like to combine my loves by starting the Penguin Drop Caps collection. But, there are 26, and I don’t know where to start. Would you make my choice for me? Here are my top 6:

    Life is hard and disconnected for so many people, isn’t it? Thank you for adding softness and connections – every bit adds up. ❤

    These past six years have been the hardest to date for my sons and I (not that life has ever been easy peasy lemon squeezey) but we keep doing out best to not give up. Everywhere we look kindness surrounds us, even if we are currently a tad isolated. It truly is the small gestures and acts that add up. Not feeling alone is rather ginormous.

    My middle son is turning 14 years old this month (Feb 23). He is smart, kind and unique. Eee (his nickname) has his fair share of obstacles in the way his brain processes information (Autism) but he keeps on doing and growing. My youngest son (12 years old) cannot get enough of reading and I cannot keep up. There is a mixture of books on the list for them, us and for me. I can’t choose just one book because I am currently having an anxiety attack BUT Nathan Hale’s Hazardous Tales are my children’s favorites and they have been waiting to save up for the two listed. So, yeah. I guess those two. ☺

    Thank you for even looking. For some odd reason I feel as if I just gave people access to my underwear drawer. Why is that? I’m weird? Yes, yes I am. And oh so grateful. ❤ Christina

  647. I don’t know if my former comment posted, since I can’t find it, and now I don’t remember what I typed. Of course. My dream book right now is The World of Ice and Fire: The Untold Story o Westeros and the Game of Thrones. These past few months have been..expensive. My beloved tabby of 15 years suddenly began losing weight. I took him to the vet and he had inoperable abdominal cancer. I, we, were devastated. I can’t remember ever crying so hard in my life. The situation was dire, and we only had about one day left with him. We got the dubious ‘privilege’ of having to euthanize him. I held him so tight, even after he was gone, and cried so hard I almost fell down from dizziness, my husband had to all but carry me out of the vets office. All told, I limped away with a shattered heart and my bank account $900 lighter. This caps off 4 years of misery and darkness. I’m was worried about me because I couldn’t see a way back. The scary part is not even caring anymore if there even is a way back.
    Sorry, I shouldn’t have dumped all of that here.
    My best wishes, for what they are worth, and my thanks go out to everyone here, the givers and the receivers. You guys always make the day brighter, and create a safe space for people like me. ❤ ❤
