Have you heard what Chronicle Books is doing?
They’re asking (more like letting!) bloggers post a wishlist of books from Chronicle, up to $500 (wow!), and then they’ll draw a winner from the (I’m guessing) ginormous pool of entrants. AND (yes, there’s more!), they’ll give the same pile of books away to a commenter at the winning blog.
So, what I’m basically saying is, if you comment here, you and I could win!
A very, very grateful thank you to Jama Rattigan for pointing me toward this contest. Make sure you check out her list and comment there, two, thus doubling your chances to win. And if you want to go crazy with commenting and entering, check out the list here of all the bloggers who are entering.
And now, without further ado…my Chronicle wishlist.
