The Haul-idays, a Chance to Win

Chronicle Books is having a fantastic contest of sorts giving bloggers and their readers a chance to win $500 haul of great Chronicle books. If you are a voracious reader like me, $500 in books is a slice of heaven!

All you have to do is post a list of Chronicle Books valued at up to $500 that you’d like to haul in, and you’re entered into a drawing to WIN your list of books! And, one of your readers who comments on the post will win the list too! Sounds great, huh? Yeah, does to me, too.

So, here’s my list (tell me what you think and be sure to comment…maybe we can BOTH win these awesome titles!):

Can you believe all the beautiful, fabulous, awesome books you can pack into a $500 shopping cart? Wholly Cannoli, that’s a whole lot of good stuff up there, huh? It has taken me two days of browsing, reading about them, and being really picky to find exactly what books I would love to win?

Does your list look something like mine? If so, be sure to leave a comment and then we can both cross our fingers and hope to all things bright and beautiful that we win this tremendous load of fabulous BOOKS! (Is there anything better than a huge haul of books…well, other than a huge haul of art supplies or fabric, right? Gimme a load of each of those and I’m set for life! lol)

Anyway, be sure to leave your comment here and let me know if you’re blogging about this great giveaway from Chronicle and I will be sure to comment on yours, too (that’ll double our chances to win!)

So, be sure to leave a comment here so we’re entered to win a matching set of all of the books on this awesome list. 

Don't be shy! 

Be sure and leave a valid email address if you don't have one in your profile.  This contest is open to U.S. residents only.  Contest ends on December 10 and winners will be announced on December 13.

Good luck to all of us…and read on!

Peace & Love,
Barb

  11. Oh, I have a whole lotta' love for Lotta. And lists. And *Pie!* "Pie is the food of the heroic." This is from a New York Times article, circa 1913 (??Date) quoted in a modern book that I think is called American Pie, written by a French journalist who drove across the U.S. in search of excellent pie. Good luck to you - and to one of us!

  20. You may have a penchant for run on sentences...but I'm the queen of them :) It's my bane to bear. Meanwhile you have a wonderfully delightful list. Very different--for the most part--from the ones I selected See My List Here; but a really delightful list nevertheless. I would absolutely love to win either your list, or mine, or any of truly wonderful ones I've seen on other sites.
    Smiles,
    Teresa
