The season begins with Chronicle Books

Posted on 12 November 2011 Saturday


It’s been a tough year for non-profits, libraries, reading rooms, and literacy programs. But you can make your favorite charity’s holiday season bright by entering the 2nd Annual Happy Haul-idays Giveaway!

This year, we’re not only giving away up to $500 worth of Chronicle books to one lucky blogger and one commenter on the winning blog post—we’re also asking the winning blogger to choose one charity to receive up to $500 of books from us. It’s just our way of spreading holiday cheer and sharing the gift of reading.
