How Big Is Your R.A.K.?

R.A.K. or Random Acts of Kindness is a new monthly blog feature created by the girls of Book Soulmates. This fantastic idea is a way to do something nice for other book bloggers by granting them “wishes” (buying them something from their book wishlists).

The rules:

  • R.A.K. is open to everyone
  • Sign up each month you’d like to participate
  • Show off your participation by grabbing the R.A.K. button
  • Create a wishlist (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 them for their address
  • At the end of the month, create a post to say thank you to whoever granted your wishes

Let’s keep our International bloggers in mind and in our hearts. Remember, there’s always the Book Depository and they offer FREE shipping!

For my wishlist you can check my shelf in goodreads.

Wish Finally Granted

Remember my Christmas Wishlist last December? I got twelve items on that list and half of it was granted. The last item on the list is Amazon Kindle or Ipad which I didn’t get. Of course I didn’t expect to really receive it as a gift and I know I need to buy it for myself. So after months of contemplating and weighing I finally decided to get my own Amazon Kindle 3 Wi-Fi edition.

I haven’t buy any e-books yet but I just got one from Sammie Spencer. She sent me a kindle edition of Anathema (Cloud Prophet Trilogy) through amazon. Isn’t it lovely? The first book in my reader is a gift from an author.  I also downloaded few samples and free books from amazon. I’m still exploring my new toy, so far I’m loving it so much.  Next thing for me is to buy a cover for my Kindle and of course a lot of books to read :P

GatheringBooks 1 Year Anniversary, 4 Public Schools, 1000 Books

GatheringBooks  is celebrating its First Anniversary.  As a part of their celebration they are hoping to give 1000 books to four disadvantaged public schools in Samar, Philippines.  Let’s join GatheringBooks in their efforts to generate supports and funds for this project. Children should not be shut out from reading because they live in a family that has to struggle financially.

What’s your reading personality?



What’s your reading personality? Are you an eclectic, serial, exacting, or involved reader?

I found this quiz over at BookBrowse and my result is:

Exacting Reader!

The expression ‘so many books, so little time!’ sums up your life. You love books but you rarely have as much time to read as you’d like – so you’re very particular about the books you choose.

“So many books, so little time!” - Funny, but I think I’ve said that before. I guess, it only means that the result is quite fitting for me. I got bunch of books on my to-read list but I haven’t got much time reading lately. Though I’m still positive with my reading challenge for this year – one hundred books to read for 2011. At least two books in a week.

Why don’t you take the quiz at BookBrowse. I’d love to hear what your reading personality is, so feel free to leave a comment.
