Happy Haul-idays from Chronicle Books - Take 2!

Hiya readers!


Well, it's the day after Thanksgiving.  Time to kick all those Christmas plans into high gear, including all that wish list shopping....what better day to start than on Black Friday? All the sale, deals and bargains to be had; it's a sea of humanity all after the same thing....Christmas spirit and the best price on what they need.  Every year my family and I brave the stores in that early morning rush whether we need something specific or not...it's just our way of ushering in the shopping season, but Chronicle Books has another option for you that's much less stressful and all about the bookish giving.  Yes, my friends....it's time for....


...the 2nd Annual Happy Haul-idays celebration!

This year, they've up the ante for not only do I (as the post-er) get a chance to win my wish list of up to $500 in Chronicle Books treasures, but you as the post-ee (okay, commenter) have a chance to win that same list...AND a charity of my choosing wins too!  Sounds great, right?  It is and definitely a great start to the most wonderful time of the year.

My charity of choice will be....
...Got Books?.  Sound familiar?  It should if you're a visitor of the site.  Last year, my blogger friend and I organized a giveaway hop titled something very similar to this, hence the deja vu.  Fear not though, this is the real thing and the book donations that they take in are distributed to several worthwhile bookish causes including Books for Troops and Books for Teachers!  It's a cause worth looking into as it supports the power of reading in communities that may not have all they need in the resource department.  So this my friends will be the organization I choose to show a little bookish love to if we are chosen as the winner.

Now...want a peek at my wish list?
Here ya go...have a gander...



 







...and a few not pictured....
 
- Dracula's Heir: An Interactive Mystery Quirk Books By Sam Stall 
 
- Large Ruled Moleskine Red Notebook 

- Never Bite When a Growl Will Do by Michael Nastasi
