Haul-idays for a good cause!

Chronicle Books is hosting their 2nd annual Happy Haul-idays.  The way it works is that I get to pick $500 worth of books that I would want to win, I also get to chose a charity that I would give the books to as well as receiving them and finally, I get to pick one lucky commenter to receive the books too! What a great idea! This not only spreads holiday cheer, but book cheer and charitable support. 

First, for my charity I am honored to choose Breaking the Chain. Breaking the Chain is a nonprofit organization created by teen author Riley Carney.  They are committed to liminating poverty for children through education and sustainable development, both within the United States and internationally. 

Now for the books!
