Random Acts of Kindness: March Wrap-up #RAK

{Click on the RAK button above to be re-directed to our Book Soulmates Store on Amazon. You can find all your favorite titles there and add them to your shopping cart.}

We'd like to pose a question.
We want to spruce up RAK a bit!  As much as we have loved hosting RAK and plan to continue doing so, we feel that it's lost a bit of its sparkle & shine!  We'd love to come up with a new, fun twist! Something that will get you folks excited about participating again.

So our question is:
Do you have any suggestions on something new that we can do with RAK? 
Any changes that you'd like to see made?

This is for you guys so your opinion(s) matter :)

Oh, and don't forget to post a link below to your wrap-up post so we can all check out your loot!

Good morning my lovelies!

I just wanted to take a moment to let you all know that I'll be traveling on business for the next few days.  I tried to get some posts scheduled but work has been balls-to-the-walls busy so I haven't been able to get much, well, ANY blogging done =/

I'll be back in a few days and will try to catch up then!

Have a super week!


#BSMPhotoADay on Instagram

We recently opened a brand new Instagram account (http://instagram.com/booksoulmates) solely dedicated to Book Soulmates (the blog) where we can share some fun bookish stuff with you guys!

We really want to have some fun with it so for the month of March, we're hosting a Photo-A-Day Challenge :)  There are no prizes at the end.  This is strictly for funsies and possibly as a way to make some new bookish friends!

We will be conducting this challenge on Instagram, but it's okay if you don't have an account.  You can still participate by uploading your pictures to Twitter and using the hashtag: #BSMPhotoADay.

An aside: The Book Soulmates account on Instagram will be run by the both of us.  Photos uploaded by Isalys will be tagged to "@Slimmy415" and photos uploaded by Vanessa will be tagged to "@VaneBookChick".  Those are our personal accounts and a way to identify which one of us uploaded which pic ;)


If you decide to join us, which we sincerely hope you do, please don't forget to tag us so we can see all the awesome pictures and follow you back (if we don't already)!

Have fun and see you on Instagram...or Twitter!

  • 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.

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.
