i love books. so when i discovered the chronicle books giveaway via mary, i had to enter. chronicle books invited bloggers to make a wish list of books up to $500 that they'd like to 'haul' away for the 'haul-idays' (har har). AND if i'm chosen, one of you lucky readers will win all the books too! to enter, simply leave a comment on this post!
here's my list (including all of the above!):
1. Humanity i love photography books, especially those that feature real people in real life.
2. Top Chef: Cookbook i'm no cook (though i'm improving!) but my family and i love to watch Top Chef (i think my mom could take any of 'em!). this would make a nice gift for her.
3. Handmade Hellos i've mentioned before that i love letters, and this book features eunice of Hello!Lucky - love!
4. Allure for a fellow fashionista, my roomy, elise.
5. Garden Anywhere m likes to garden but i'm afraid we won't have much of a yard next year.
6. Paper and Craft this just looks fun.
7. Deep Dark Chocolate for maddy, my pastry chef friend (and the baker for our wedding!).
