HAUL-IDAYS!


i love Chronicle books SO much.
every year around the holiday season, we make a trip up to
SF, and I'm always excited to stop by the little blue Chronicle on Union Street.
I guess that's why my bookshelf is chock full of those little glasses!

have the heard the good news?! Chronicle is hosting the most bomb
giveaway, and you can win big time!

your readers who comments on the post will win the list too!

So....COMMENT on my wish list! And let's both cross our fingers!

  59. I love the list, and I love Chronicle's food books (especially). I find it amusing that one of the books is "Sticky Chewy Messy Gooey," just around the time that chocolate guru Alice Medrich releases her new book, "Chewy Gooey Crispy Crunchy."
