My Chronicle Books Happy Haul-idays list!

I have just done my Christmas shopping--in a manner of speaking!

Chronicle Books has just announced that Happy Haul-idays is here again, and that means I just spent 500 imaginary dollars, filling my shopping cart. Such fun! And maybe I will be the lucky blogger who wins....and I'd get to pick a lucky commenter to win them too!

But wait, there's more! If I win, a charity of my choice gets $500 worth of books too! That's a hard one, almost as hard as picking the books...so many good ones. But I think I would have to go with the E*** S**** Public Library, right down the street from me (name cleverly disguised so stalkers (such as there are) can't find me). I am, after all, the president of the Friends, and work hard for every $500 we raise (three more book sales till solar panel planning starts!)

Here's my list. Only four of the books are for me, because I am beautifully unselfish, even when spending money that isn't real! :)

  10. Yes, Emily, I would give you Hand Held Pies! And possibly one of the blank books...

    The other blank book is one of the four for me, as is Le Japon Artistique, Drawing Nature, and Bunny Suicides.

  29. Like yours, my list is made of mostly books for others (moleskine for my Not-So-Bebe-Girl Autumn, Vincent's Colors for the grandbebes, Blinky Bugs for Bebe Boy James) - but I definitely HAD to include some of the lovely Chronicle cookbooks for myself! Good luck!
