Happy Haul-idays, year 2!

The good folks at Chronicle Books have revived the contest for another year! This year has a twist- not only can one of you & I win $500 worth of books, they'll donate the same to the charity of the winner's choice! How awesome is that? I'd have to donate to First Books ( just because I believe that EVERYONE should have books that wants them.

So, without further ado, here's my wishlist:

Cake SimpleCake Simple: Recipes for Bundt-Style Cakes from Classic Dark Chocolate to Luscious Lemon Basil  $19.95

Farts Around the World $15.95

It’s Lonely in the Modern World

It’s Lonely in the Modern World: The Essential Guide to Form, Function, and Ennui from the Creators of Unhappy Hipsters  $19.95

Treasured Classics $19.99


How to Speak Wookiee $16.95


Bon Voyage $16.95
