R.A.K December sign up

Book Soulmates

Hey guys, it's December and the ladies of Book Soulmates, have put up the December sign up form for this month's RAK. If you aren't sure what I'm talking about R.A.K is Random Acts of Kindness. In which you can sign up to participate. How it works is you sign up and you pick someone, or somepeople on the list and you check out their wishlist, if you find something you want to send them, you get it for them and send it.
I have to wait a week or so until I get paid, then I can send someone a RAK. YAY! I'm all signed up (number 39 on the list)

Here are the rules copied and pasted from their site:





 
Hello December!  It's now officially the most wonderful time of year!
It's so hard to believe that 2011 is almost over (thank God!)

Please remember that R.A.K. is not about receiving FREE books! It's about giving as well as receiving.  It's 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.

COMPLETE RULES RE-CAP:
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
Tips:
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 :)

Hi! Thanks for entering my blog hop last week. It's nice to "meet" another book blogger. :)

Have a good day!
