i love chronicle books

happy haulidays from chronicle books

This is just one more reason I love Chronicle Books. They are doing a pretty interesting giveaway. It’s called Happy Haulidays (link will give you details and rules). In a nutshell: bloggers post up to $500 worth of Chronicle products they would like to “haul” away for the holidays and only lucky blogger wins their haul. As an added bonus, one lucky commenter (on the winning blog) will also win the haul. The contest winner will be announced on December 13, 2010.

I literally spent hours DAYS looking at Chronicle Books site. They not only carry books, but also journals, stationery & more! I also looked at a few of the lists that had been posted, and decided that a theme would be helpful.

But what would my theme be? That’s when it hit me: I love Chronicle Books so much because they publish books (and more) about my Passions: Reading, Children’s Books, Cooking, Writing, Travel, the Bay Area and Life.

So let’s just call this My Passion Haul:
my passion haul

The list (left to right, from the top):
Pops: Icy Treats for Everyone
Mixed: Portraits of Multiracial Kids
Duck! Rabbit!
Change the World for Ten Bucks
Power of the Invisible Sun: Deluxe Edition

Animals on Parade Notecard Set by Suki

Scribble It!: 30 Postcards
IDEO London
The Art of Toy Story 3
Other Goose

Total cost: $499.06 (hope they don’t include sales tax or shipping)

I can’t promise you’ll win if you comment, but it’s worth a shot, no?

If you can’t wait until the 13th, you can take advantage of Chronicle Books Friends & Family Sale. You save 35% off your order PLUS get free shipping. Use code FRIENDS. Offer expires December 12, 2010. Also if you are on Ebates, you can get back some cash.

    Nice mix of books. Chronicle has such a great selection I’d be happy to win any of them!

  2. What a great list! How did I miss Pops?? I get hungry just LOOKING at that cover! I already have Other Goose and reviewed it recently on my blog (well, sort of .. it’s mainly a review of how hard it is to keep grandbebes from popping up to touch textures, in one case try to take some taste, and interrupting to tell me that I wasn’t saying the rhyme right, but it sort of qualifies as a review!) Very good book … now I have to buy two more, though, since my own Bebe Boy snatched this one, and then my older daughters wanted it for their kids 🙂 Christmas book boxes, get ready for a new addition! (or more, if we win!) Good Luck!
