Enter to win Happy Haul-idays contest from Chronicle Books!

Do you love free stuff?  I received an offer today from Chronicle Books  that I couldn't turn down: they are having a "happy haul-idays!" contest for book bloggers.  You post a list of Chronicle Books valued at up to $500 that you’d like to haul in, and you’ll be automatically entered into a drawing to WIN your list of books! And, what's even more fun, one of your readers who comments on the post will win the list too!  Who doesn't love to win things, especially books, and from one of the best publishers out there! 

I had such fun picking out a list of books from their wonderful inventory--and you never know, someone has to win these things!  I picked out lots of kids books and also some items that would be fun for busy parents.  Perhaps the Fourth Musketeer and one of her lucky readers will win this fabulous prize package!


To enter, just leave a comment below!  If I win, you may also be a winner!  Check out my picks below, and don't forget to leave a comment.  You may also want to take a look at Chronicle's website for your own holiday shopping. Chronicle not only publishes unique books, they have many attractive gift items at well.   Their site is really fun and easy to browse.  Chronicle will announce the winning blog and follower on December 13, but you must enter by December 10.  If I somehow win, some of the titles will be donated to the Los Angeles Times annual Reading by 9 Holiday Book Drive, which distributes new and gently used book to K-3 classrooms in Los Angeles, Orange, Riverside, San Bernardino, and Ventura Counties.

Some great choices for the kids in my early childhood program if you, then I, were the lucky winners. And I'm already lucky, as my 13 year-old loves historical fiction ("Chains," anyone?) and recently we became homeschoolers. I've bookmarked you and shall return!

Teresa Thomas Bohannon said...

A wonderful list. Very different--for the most part--from the ones I selected See My List Here but a really delightful list nevertheless. I would absolutely love to win either one.
