Happy Haul-idays!!!

Chronicle Books is having its annual Happy Haul-idays promotion. Whether you’re a blogger who loves winning books or just a blog reader who does, this is a promotion for you.

The rules:

  • If you’re a blogger, write a blog post listing the Chronicle books you would love to win. $500 is the max that your stack could total.
  • Include in your post, what charity you would love to win their own Chronicle haul.
  • If you don’t have a blog, don’t worry. Just comment on a Haul-iday post. If a post you comment on wins the contest, you have a chance to win that same stack of books.
