Random Acts of Kindness info.
So a while back I did a post about how to get books when you're flat broke. You can check it out here. At the time I didn't know much about Random Acts of Kindness and what I did know I didn't understand, so I didn't include it. I've since learned about it and I've been happily doing it for months so I thought I'd share it with you guys here (especially since I'm terrible at making my recap posts :P).
RAK is this awesome thing hosted by Book Soulmates which makes a giant list of bloggers who want to participate. In order to participate and be included on the list everyone must have a wishlist (but, I mean come on, who doesn't have a wishlist?). From there, people can decide to send you books using your wishlist or you can decide to send someone a book using theirs. Nothing is required of anyone, but in my personal opinion, it's just as fun to send books as it is to get them.
I have a whole box of books I've gotten from trips to Half Price and thrift stores for the sole use of RAK and trades. I figure what's $5 to me when it could totally make someone's day :D
