Random Acts of Kindness - March

Book Soulmates

RAK is a monthly meme hosted by Book Soulmates. You can join in on the fun HERE.

What is a RAK?

For those of you who don't know, a RAK is a Random Act of Kindness. People sign up with their wishlist and then can look at other people's wish-lists and send them a Random Act of Kindness. It is really simple, but here are the rules:

  • Please read carefully and 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 of the Book Soulmates page).
  • 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 of our INTERNATIONAL brethren!
Remember, there's always the Book Depository or Fishpond, and they offer FREE shipping!

RAK at Bibliophilia, Please

I am more interested in sending out this month (if my dingy self remembers before the end of the month!) than receiving, but if you insist, I have two different bookish wishlists on Amazon: one for YA/MG Books and another for Adult Books. If you just want highlights, here's the top 5:

  1. The Sorceress by Michael Scott
  2. Vessel by Sarah Beth Durst
  3. The Mad Scientist's Daughter by Cassandra Rose Clarke
  4. The Rook by Daniel O'Malley
  5. Splendors and Glooms by Laura Amy Schlitz

I hope you guys all have a happy RAK month!


  1. Happy RAK month to you as well!! I gotta say, I haven't heard of the main books in your wishlist, but they all sound great, especially The Mad Scientist's Daughter!
    Hope you'll get to read them ^^ You know that saying...
    GOTTA CATCH 'EM ALL!! :))))


  2. The Sorceress is the third book in The Secrets of the Immortal Nicholas Flamel series, which is one of my favorites. The first book is The Alchemyst, and I highly recommend it!

  3. I haven't heard of any of those yet but i will look at them^^

    ( i'm wondering why i'm making a top 5 because really all the books on my wishlist are good for me, it seems so easy for you^^)

    hope you will get a great March RAK month even if you prefer sending this time

  4. Oooh I DO KNOW of The Secrets of the Immortal Nicholas Flamel series, I have only heard good things about it.. One day, I'll start it as well. ONE DAY.
