Random Thoughts: January RAK Sign-Up

Book Soulmates

Well, a new year is the time to start afresh don't you think? Well I do! And so will my RAKing. 
And this month is a special month as it is my Birth Month! Woo hoo! So I will DEFINITELY be sending out something.

Here's my Wishlist if you wanna send me a bday gift. Yes, I AM shameless. But birthdays only come once a year so I'm making the most of it.

Here are a few of my top wishlist books for this month:
Iron Daughter by Julie Kagawa
The Fault in Our Stars - John Green
Oh yes, and if YOU are a January baby too, feel free to drop me a line at my email below so I'll know.

And before we get TOO excited at the prospect of more wonderful books, please remember to read the rules deemed worthy by our lovely hosts at Book Soulmates and Sign Up to take part!

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!!

If you have any questions regarding RAK, please contact us via the following: rakbybooksoulmates @ gmail . com

1. When talking about RAK on Twitter, please use the hashtag: #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 had 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 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.
