I need your help!

Hello, everyone! I am humbly asking for your help to get the word out about Random Acts of Reading. Within the first week of launching the blog I heard from many people who loved the idea of this project and wanted to help in some way. Over the next week or so I am going to do some behind-the-scenes work to spread the word via emails. However, I would love it if any or all of you would share about the project on your own blogs. In the very near future I hope to have a blog button available for you to post on your own blog. Until then, I would be so grateful if you could link to the blog to send more people this way. I really believe we can collectively give 2,010 books in 2010 if we work together. I am also going to start a list on the sidebar of the blog with bloggers who are willing to pledge to give books through this project. If you would like to pledge, leave me a comment here or email me to let me know how many books you THINK you could give this year. Don't worry.........I won't hunt you down in December if you haven't given as many as you thought! When you do give a book, just send me a quick email telling me how many and (if you want) the titles and I'll include your books in the "official" count. For more information about how to participate, read THIS POST. Are you with me??
I can't wait to hear from you!!

PS: If you would like to participate and don't have a blog, please comment or email me and I'll add you to the sidebar list as well!! I'll just list you by your first name and/or nickname or by whatever name you'd like!!


  1. I am working on 4 kits right now! I will post about them and this blog by the end of the week. I hope to do at least one a month.

  2. I also posted a link on my facebook, another good way to spread the word...

  3. This is an awesome idea! I blogged about it over at A Munchkin's World and plan to do a drop a month (I hope)!

  4. Hi Laura! My girls and I are so excited to participate in this. We are going to aim for 20 drops this year. I'll get a post up on my blog this week, too. What fun! :)

  5. I have a suggestion or idea...
    perhaps adding to the take me home label--
    I am Free take me home
    or on the congratualtions label
    congratulations you have discovered a free bookpack left by random acts of reading project. Or something similar to that to let people know that is absolutely okay to take these home and they don't feel uncomfortable in doing so.

    Just a thought...

  6. Hi, I will be posting about this on my blog- just a personal one- and I would love to pledge 6 book packs!
