The idea behind Random Acts of Kindness, or RAK, is to show a little love to fellow bloggers. People put forward their wishlists and sign up and send books to each other. It puts a smile on people’s faces, and that’s always a good thing, especially in the current economy. Hosted by Book Soulmates.
- 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!
I wasn’t actually going to sign up in October, fun fact, because I knew I had a couple of giveaways coming up and such, but then Hanna (lovely, lovely Hanna) of Booking in Heels announced she was going to send me Stolen as an RAK so I plopped myself in the list, and then Sarah from Whispering Words offered to send me a couple of books as well (Stray and The Novice)! They’re all fantastic and I can’t wait to get started, especially Stolen and Stray!! Thank you to both of you! Loves you. <3
So we were going to be moving in November but early December is now looking more likely. 7th of December is my birthday so.. I don’t know how you guys prefer to do birthday RAKs (before or after). I’m a bit new to that, obviously, RAK hasn’t been going longer than a few months.
This month I’m after urban fantasy, fairy tale/fantasy type stories, if they’re dark, even better, horror – I’m not big on gore or scaring myself to sleep but I love a good dark tale and Pretty When She Dies has got me craving good horror, so perhaps zombie books, though others are welcome, and I’m always after epic fantasy. I do try to keep my wishlist updated and that is always in my sidebar, if you find/know of something you think I might like that I might not have wishlisted, by all means you can ask me, I don’t know of everything and it might be good! Mostly craving dark fiction at the moment though and need to read more fantasy/fairy tales to help me better understand my own novel’s concept. Mine is to be a dark fairy tale but I’m open to anything at the moment. If you’d like to send me ebooks I do have an Amazon.com account and I’m happy to work Smashwords, but check with me first, a lot of the books on my ‘most wanted’ I’m more interested in hard copies. I RANT!
Particularly interested in:
- Kelley Armstrong‘s books. I have Stolen, read Bitten (don’t own it), but any others.
- Rhiannon Frater‘s As The World Dies. Craving me some zombies. And she rocks.
- Karen Marie Moning‘s Fever series. They sound epic.
- Maria V. Snyder‘s Glass trilogy. Loved Study, need these.
- Terry Pratchett‘s Discworld books. I have a fair few but there are a lot I am missing. Best ask.
- Brandon Sanderson‘s The Way of Kings. I need to read this!
- Erin Morgenstern‘s The Night Circus. There’s something intriguing about creepy circuses.
