Random Acts of Kindness: Christmas Edition #RAK #SecretSanta #MyWishList

It's been a while since I've participated in RAK, but I couldn't resist this awesome Christmas Edition! I always loved the Random Acts of Kindess feature hosted by Book Soulmates, but I'm definitely even more excited to do a Secret Santa version...check out the awesome button that Vanmar Designs created for Book Soulmates for the event! It's so cute and festive...and doesn't it make you want to participate? :D

 Now, since it is a new variation of the event there are some new rules. I've copied and pasted them below in the quote box just in case anyone is curious about them before they want to sign up, and below, I'm going to post the top five books on my wishlist. :)
(please read thoroughly)

  • Participation requires that you agree to send your assigned contact (1) Secret Santa gift (selected from the wishlist provided).  In exchange, you will also receive a Secret Santa gift from the person that was assigned your name.
  • We suggest that you put a note on/with your gift stating that it's a "Secret Santa RAK gift" and include your name/blog so that the recipient knows who the gift is from :)
  • The form will ask you for your Top 5 Wishlist Titles as well as a link to the rest of your wishlist (located on Amazon, Goodreads, or your blog, etc).
  • The form will accept sign-ups starting November 1 through November 24. 
    Sorry guys, but the form will be closed after November 25th to allow us time to assign & distribute.
  • All participants will be contacted via email on December 1st with the information for their Secret Santa recipient.  It's very important that you check your inbox for this message!
  • You will have from December 1st to December 25th (the sooner the better) to send out your RAK.  After all, it is to be a Christmas present!
  • E-book participation is limited to files being gifted directly to a person from the e-book store. Amazon's Kindle, Barnes & Noble's Nook, and the Kobo store are all set up to allow this.  We do not, ever, encourage people to send pirated books so we urge you to use your discretion if/when accepting PDF files not sent through a retailer.
  • At the end of the month (by Dec 31st), show us your R.A.K by creating a "RAK Wrap-up" post.
  • You may also show off your participation by grabbing our *new* Christmas Edition RAK button!
Remember that you can order from Book Depository to ship to an international friend!

If you have any questions regarding RAK, please contact us via Twitter or at our email booksoulmates @ gmail . com

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.
