Have you seen the Happy Haul-idays Contest from Chronicle Books? It is a great idea…and if I win, so can one of you. Here are the details:
- Bloggers (like me) pick out $500 worth of books from Chronicle Books web site and list them on their blog.
- I then enter the post listing my books into the Happy Haul-idays entry form at Chronicle Books.
- If I am chosen as the winner, then I win the $500 worth of books I picked … and so does someone who left a comment on this post!
The deadline to post entries (and comments!) is December 10th.
Sound like fun?
Here are my favorite books from their site (clicking on the thumbnail of each book will take you to the Chronicle Books page for each book where you can read a description of the book)…I ended with a total haul of $487.50 … that’s close enough I think!
