Chronicle Book love...Happy Haulidays (Win $500 worth of Books)

Let's have some fun...One of my all time favorite publishers (Chronicle Books) is having a contest for bloggers and blog readers to win an awesome assortment of books from their store.

I get to choose $500 worth of super cool books. You make a comment about these books.   Chronicle Books picks a lucky blog and a commenter to that blog. We both win our own set of the books below. Pretty cool, huh?
