Random Act of Kindness September Sign-Up!

Due to the demands of keeping up with RAK, we have established a new email address dedicated to all RAK related inquiries.  With the help of The Bookish Brunette, we will be using this address ONLY to address everyone's quespsons and comments concerning RAK.  We find that it is too difficult to have questions spread out amongst 3 email addresses & Twitter accounts.  To eliminate confusion or anything slipping through the cracks, we've come up with this solution.
Starting immediatly, please send ALL RAK related messages to:
rakbybooksoulamates @ gmail . com

Wow! September is finally here and bringing with it a new month of RAKs! August was an amazing month full of gift giving and incredible generosity. Isalys and I are both so proud of everyone for participating and passing on some kindness. We all know how tough this economy has become so imagine how much it means to someone to be able receive that one book they've been longing for but couldn't afford. Yeah, you guys rock. You should all totally pat yourselves on the back! You're all inspirations and make us proud to be a part of such an incredible community.

Now with that said, we have received a few emails with people saying they cannot afford to buy a book for others but would be willing to create something, such as a handmade bookmark or something of that nature.
We'll be adding an extra column for people who would not mind accepting handmade goodies.
The winner of the RAK giveaway will be posted tomorrow {or Saturday} so stay tuned for that!
If you are new to RAK, welcome aboard!

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 :)
