May 2011 - R.A.K. = Random Acts of Kindness

RAK (aka Random Acts of Kindness)

For the month of May

R.A.KSo, the girls over at Book Soulmates have come up with kind of an awesome way to surprise someone with a totally random act of kindness. And I kind of like the idea, so I think I'll play along this month, myself.

(FYI Update: I didn't receive any R.A.K.'s during the month of April, but I also wasn't able to send out any either, which saddened me since I love being able to surprise random people with books I think they like. I'm going to try and at least do a little better this month, hopefully. We'll see how it all goes.)

To check out all off the details, just head over here. They only have a few rules, so this is kinda how this works out.

a. Sign up each month you'd like to participate in. (For me, it's this month.)
b. Show off your participation, by grabbing one of their little nifty buttons and displaying it.
c. Then just create a wish list and post it in the Google Doc located in each R.A.K post for the month. {Post on your blog, Amazon, where ever as long as there's a link to it.}
d. Then if you decide you want to do a R.A.K for someone else, just scope out their wish list and contact them for their address, and viola R.A.K. (I swear, that's so dirty! lol.) done.
e. Then at the end of the month, SHOW US YOUR R.A.K! Just make a post saying 'Thank You' to whoever granted one of your wishes and share it with us :)

With that being said you can find MY WISHLIST OVER HERE, after you make your way over to BOOK SOULMATES and fill out the sign-up sheet and follow the directions.

I don't mind getting used books, as long as they're not literally trashed. As in, the cover is lightly worn and the pages aren't marked all over or torn up. In fact, I've been known to have bought some pretty good books from reliable sources that were used and were in still very good condition. Oh, and don't forget that the bookdepository has free shipping and I know that if you spend up to $25 at Barnes&Noble, Amazon, and Books-A-Million that you get free shipping as well. Just a little fyi, for those interested. :)

To share the love with other's and actually give an R.A.K GO HERE!
