So, the fine folks over at Chronicle Books are having a bit of a giveaway.
Just a bit.
A haul of up to $500 for a blogger and commenter to win.
Yep, if I win and you comment and your comment is chosen then we are both winners and have lots of new books.
I made a list, check it out below.
Leave a comment for your chance to win.
Seriously, this is a win win, even if we don't win we have learned about a bunch of swell books.
