Win Books from Chronicle

It's time again for the Happy Haul-idays Giveaway from Chronicle Books! For the second year in a row, one lucky blogger will win up to $500 worth of Chronicle books. To take part, you can create and post your own list of books to win, up to $500 worth, and enter your link here. One reader who comments on the winning post will receive the entire list of books too! So even if you don't have a blog, you still have a chance to win by commenting. This year, Chronicle is being extra awesome and also giving $500 in books to a charity of the winning blogger's choice. The last day to submit entries is December 2nd, so get to it! My list is pretty similar to the one I made last year, with a few new reads.

For anyone who might want to create their own list, here are a few Chronicle books from my own collection that I absolutely love. They're all so pretty and full of great design!
