Chronicle Books' 2nd Annual Happy Hauliday

~please excuse this little break in gift guide postings~


I was super excited when I saw the email in my inbox from Chronicle Books saying that they were holding their Happy Hauliday Giveaway again this year. (read last year's post)
"This year, we're not only giving away up to $500 worth of Chronicle books to one lucky blogger and one commenter on the winning blog post—we're also asking the winning blogger to choose one charity to receive up to $500 of books from us. It's just our way of spreading holiday cheer and sharing the gift of reading."

So that means if I win, one of you wins. So take a look at my book list below and leave a comment on which book you think you be your favorite and we'll both cross our fingers!
