Random Thoughts: November RAK Wrap-Up & December RAK Sign-Up

November slipped past so quickly! Christmas and New Year's is now just around the corner. And now December is a time of giving so let's call on the Random Acts of Kindness (RAK) and spread some Christmas joy to others no matter where they are in the world!
November was a little different for me. I didn't send out a book but instead, an Amazon GC which was wonderfully utilized by the receiver to get a book she really wanted off her wishlist! The recipient of my little November RAK was:
miki @ Lecture toute une Aventure from Belgium

And from the same miki, I got:

her lovely handmade bookmark! JUST FOR ME! plus some cute Smurfy stickers!

Yet again, a BIG thanks to the gals over at Book Soulmates for continually hosting this great monthly event! A lot of bookish joy has been spread around the world because of them.

Here's what you need to know to sign up for December!
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 an email to [rakbybooksoulmates @ gmail . com] so that they 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!!
