Book RAK

So a few months ago Nicole RAKed me a book on her blog. I promised I would pay it forward and RAK it to some one else on my blog. The thing is...I have TONS of books. Lots and lots of fun paperbacks. Summer is the perfect time for reading, right? So I figured, why not share them with my friends? It's either that or my husband is going to go crazy. He says we're swimming in books and I need to do something with them. So here's the deal-y-O: If you all are interested I'll RAK a new book, or SET of books every week this summer. yeah, I have that many books and more.
This weeks offering is Water for Elephants by Sara Gruen. (raked to me by Nicole)

The story flips back from 1930's to present day. It is sad, scary, emotional and even at times funny. Very fun quick read. If you're interested, leave a comment and one of my lovely assistants will draw a name by Tuesday. If they pick you, I'll send it off, along with some other goodies!
p.s.
if you think this is a total stupid idea and you are not interested in any of my books, OH WELL. ha ha! J/K :D

I think this is a FABULOUS idea and if I had any books, I'd join you in RAKing them away!

I haven't read this one{or even heard of it, honestly} so count me in for the drawing!

How funny ! I don't need this book either ,it's a great idea though and since I have about 6 big boxes full that don't need unpacked from moving maybe I should do this too !

I'm a "who done it" kind of reader but Corey Ann turned me on to this book and I couldn't put it down! I was crying or laughing all the way thru the story. It touched my heart and tickled my funny bone all at the same time. My best friend (who reads the same stuff I do) really enjoyed it too! Highly recommended by Mom!

Ditto here.. Do not need to be included in this one, but wanted to say from what I have read on the link, it sounds like a great book to continue reading!

Ooh, ooh, ooh!!!! Put me in the drawing!! I actually saw this book at the bookstore yesterday and was thinking that it looked good.

Books are some of my very favorite things, so I think a book RAK is great!
