We sent:
Unfortunately, this month was crazy busy with anniversaries, baby showers and vacation planning so I was unable to send any :(  Next month!

We received:

A huuuuuuge thank you to Christen at Goldilox and the Three Weres for IF I DIE by Rachel Vincent.  I read this book the INSTANT that I got it and although I nearly died from the emotional onslaught, it was so worth the wait!!

Thank you ALL for your continued participation in sharing the love of reading with others. We couldn't have asked for better bloggy friends!

PS: Don't forget to leave the links to your R.A.K. October Wrap-Up! posts so we can stop by and check out your loot!!

Random Acts of Kindness: October Sign-up!

As you can see from our September Wrap-up Post, we had an AMAZING month!! We had a total of 349 sign-ups.  It just gets better & better every month.

But now it's time for a new month and we are so uber-excited because it's October - our FAVORITE month of the year!!

We want to take a moment to remind everyone that R.A.K. is not about receiving FREE books! It's about sharing the spirit of giving, about passing on the joy of reading and books with others.  If during any given month, you find that you may not be able to give at all, please reconsider signing up for that month.  We've found that there have been quite a few people who have received but not given and that may seem unfair to some.

Please read carefully & follow all rules!

  • 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 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 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!!

    Good luck to all the giveaway participants and thanks for joining and passing on the kindness!
    You guys ROCK!!
1. When talking about RAK on Twitter, please use the hastag (#RAK). It makes it much easier to keep track of the conversations, answer questions and/or tweet back! =)
2. When submitting your wish list, please make sure that it is set to PUBLIC viewing. Some people have run into trouble with wish lists that were set to private. We want to be sure that no one is left out of getting great RAKs.
3. Some of you seem to have gotten frustrated because you can't get your links to appear active. This is a very easy fix :) Just make sure that when you enter your link, do NOT hit the Enter key. Instead, hit the TAB key which will send you to the next field on the form. Additional spaces entered after the link will leave the link inactive. However, if this does happen to you...no worries, we'll fix it for you :)
