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:
