December Random Acts of Kindness

RAK Button_Xmas_December

I’m back in action for Random Acts of Kindness again this month!  I’ve participated fairly regularly over the past year or so (even during this insanely busy semester), but I didn’t get a chance to participate in November.

Since the holiday season is upon us, I definitely wanted to sign-up again in December and have been excitedly browsing others’ wish lists and marking books I want to buy for some lucky folks – can’t wait to send out emails this weekend!

If you’re interested in joining this month’s Random Acts of Kindness, here are some details:

Random Acts of Kindness – September (#RAK)

One of my favorite on-going events is the monthly “Random Acts of Kindness” book-exchange!  I have participated pretty regularly over the 1+ years and it has been great! Not only have I given and received great books, but I’ve also met some groovy new book bloggers.

RAK time for me is usually around the middle of the month – and I look forward to it every time it comes around!  I spend the first two weeks “window shopping” through people’s wish lists, then make a few selections sometime around the 15th.  Can’t wait to do it again in October!

Books Received in August:

City of Lost Souls by Cassandra Clare

Books Gifted in August:

Cranford by Elizabeth Gaskell

The Grapes of Wrath by John Steinbeck

Pure by Julianna Baggott

Under the Poppy by Kathe Koja

For September: Here’s My Wishlist!
