Well now what do we have here. An interesting book giveaway (with a fun twist) that closes on the 10th.
I read about it at http://artquiltmaker.com/blog but the link is http://www.chroniclebooks.com/happyhaulidays if you want to participate.
The idea is you pick books up to the value of $500 from the Chronicle Books site. Post your list, add your link with them, and if your name is drawn not only do you win but someone who leaves a comment at your blog entry also wins the same list of books. How cool is that :)
