October RAK Wrap-Up

October went by so fast, too fast I must say. It was a great month for reading and receiving some wonderful Random Acts of Kindness. Thank you to all of the bloggers and readers who participate in this fun bookswapping, gift-giving program. I love being a part of this bookish community. I also want to thank Vanessa and Isalys of Books Soulmates for coordinating and hosting.

I received:

Thank you so much!!

The Girls of Baxter Academy (e-book) from Jenn at Waiting on Sunday to Drown
Amber at The Musings of ALMYBNENR - Faking It (e-book)
Rain Maiden Jen - Playing Hurt


I received one more RAK after I posted this on Sunday. On Halloween, I came home to a treat and no tricks!! Alyssa @ The Reader's Refuge gave me

I sent:

Meghan Books and Tea - The Lovely Books* and The Notebook*
Jenny @ Mimosa Stimulus  - Dairy Queens
Rain Maiden Jen - Nick and Norah's Infinite Playlist and some gum (new not chewed, lol)
Alyssa @ The Reader's Refuge - My Sister's Keeper*
Jenn at Waiting on Sunday to Drown - Lucky* and The Witches of Santa Anna 

I made an effort to not spend too much money on RAKs this month. I planned to send 3 (new) books out this month (trying to maintain a budget), but I had many of these books on my shelves* and wanted to pass them along. So I did buy only 3 books (Kindle "give as gift" makes it too easy), and that goal was met.

I didn't plan to sign up in next month since I declared it "No Book Buying November" but I am going to sign up in hopes that I can pass along more books that are already on my shelves.

I'd love to know what books you received as RAK. Please leave a comment and I will check them out.



  1. Great collection although the beginning of the Lovely Bones bothered me so much I couldn't read it all the way through.

  2. Great set of books you gave away. Me too. Might sign up to get rid of some more books myself. I give a lot of books, because I want others to enjoy books.

  3. Thanks for the two books! I'm working on The Witches of Santa Anna and hope to get to Lucky soon.

  4. I'd love to hear your opinion of The Girls of Baxter Academy. It seems interesting!


Thanks for stopping by my blog and taking the time to comment!
