Happy Haulidays!

This winter WE could be winners!  Well, we already ARE winners, but we could win some books too. Thanks to Chronicle Books. They are offering their Second Annual Happy Haulidays book giveaway this month.
Here's the scoop.  I write a blog post which includes a list of 500$ worth of Chronicle Books I'd like to own and give to a charity,  and YOU post a comment about it.  Then THEY randomly choose my post as the winner, I choose your comment, and YOU, ME, and the CHARITY each get a set of the books.  Easy as pie. 

If I win, I think I would like my local library, Tompkins County Public Library, to have these books. I spend so much time there, researching, looking at books with Cedar, picking out movies from their extensive collection, and finding just the right stories to read. Not to mention all the program over the years I have attended there, and made use of. It's a great place to hang out and write, or find the best of the children's section.

If you have a blog, you can post your own entry as well. But you have to enter by December 2nd to be in the drawing. If you don't blog, leave a comment here, or stop by the other blogs entered, and you could win too!

I always love books from Chronicle but many of these are new to me, clearly I need to go look at their booklist. Good luck to you, me and your library. Happy Holi/Hauli-days!

I love your mix of children and adult books. The Story of Snow looks really interesting, I missed it when I made my list of children's books for the Haul.
Good luck to us both - Katie

I tried to win the NPR book in last year's contest, but luckily, my husband bought it for me as a gift. This year, I got to choose a whole new list and a charity. Thanks for commenting on my list at Two Kinds of People. I hope one of us wins!
