This is a Contest: Chronicle Books Hauliday

November 24, 2010

Chronicle Books is having a “Happy Haul-idays” contest, in which bloggers can post a wish list of Chronicle’s titles up to a $500 limit to be entered in a drawing to win those books. As a librarian/reader, I couldn’t resist the opportunity to poke around the Chronicle catalog and maybe win some books. My list is below, in alphabetical order (except google spreadsheet’s lack of accounting for initial articles). If I win, one person who commented on this post will also win the list of books. I have to confess, though, that I made the list with only my own assorted interests in mind. Reef Watch Waikiki took a much more noble and ocean-themed approach to their list.

    WHY didn’t I think to put at least ONE Moleskin on MY list? 🙂 We share a few, though: Fast Breads, Pride and Prejudice and Zombies. And there are some others that I WISH I had put on my own; I love all of the paper craft books that you listed! Good luck!

      Julie, I really had to restrain myself from including several more notebooks. 🙂
