RAK (Random Acts of Kindness) is a really great program that Vanessa and Isalys of Book Soulmates have started. Basically, it gives bloggers, book lovers and readers the chance to brighten someone's day by sending them a book that they've put on their wishlist.
I declared October International RAK Month for myself. Basically I decided to choose some international names from the RAK sign-up and see if I could spread the love to other countries. Here's what I gifted:
To Bella (UK)
WHISPER by Phoebe Kitanidis
ENCHANTED IVY by Sarah Beth Durst
To Kate (UK)
TEMPEST RISING by Tracy Deebs
AFTER OBSESSION by Carrie Jones and Steve Wedel
GLOW by Amy Kathleen Ryan
To Cheree (Australia)
SHUT OUT by Kody Keplinger
SHIVER by Maggie Stiefvater
THE ELEVENTH PLAGUE by Jeff Hirsch
Nothing for October
I'm going to RAK for another month, so here's my wishlist for November. I'm happy to accept new or gently-read ARCs and finished copies of books. I also love e-books, but they have to be in epub or pdf format, thanks.

4. Nevermore by Kelly Creagh
