Random Acts of Kindness - November Sign Up

Thank you Vanessa and Isalys of Books Soulmates for once again hosting Random Acts of Kindness! RAK is a fun opportunity to grant some wishes, share your books, and connect with other bloggers and readers. I like having the opportunity to give someone a gift of a book and hopefully make their day!

This month I am doing something a little different (well maybe not so different). I have imposed a book-buying ban for the month of November and this includes RAKs too. So I will be sharing books from my own shelves. If you have ever read any of my TBR or bookshelf posts, you will know there are plenty to choose from. Four of the seven books I sent out were my own that I passed along. So if any of my readers are signing up, please let me know in the comments and I will see if I have any books on my shelves that I can pass along. And if anyone wants to send me a RAK, my wishlist can be found HERE

If you haven't ever signed up for Random Acts of Kindness, but have been thinking about it, do it,  it's easy. Here are the guidelines/rules as outlined by Book Soulmates:

Please read carefully & follow all rules!  Thank you!
  • Please sign-up each month that you can participate (and by participate, we mean give as well as receive).
  • Show off your participation by grabbing our RAK button (code is in the right sidebar).
  • Create a wish list (on Amazon, Goodreads, or your blog etc) and post it in the Google Doc located in each R.A.K post for the month.
  • If you choose to do a R.A.K for someone, check out their wish list and contact that blogger directly for their information.
  • Once you receive a RAK, send us an our new email to [rakbybooksoulmates @ gmail . com] so that we can update the Google Doc. IT IS VERY IMPORTANT THAT YOU SEND EMAILS TO THIS ADDRESS!
  • E-book participation is limited to files being gifted directly to a person from the e-book store. Amazon's Kindle Store is set up to allow this, as well as the Kobo store and we believe Barnes & Noble with Nook as well.
  • At the end of the month, SHOW US YOUR R.A.K by making a "RAK Wrap-Up" post.  This post should include who you SENT gifts to as well who you RECEIVED gifts from :)
OPEN TO EVERYONE including all our International brethren!
Remember, there's always the Book Depository and they offer FREE shipping!

Easy peezy!!

    Happy reading!
