Celebrate the Haul-idays!

Ever since I was a very young girl, I've adored reading books! At first I was really into fairy tales and mythology, then I moved on to animal themes and horse stories like "Black Beauty" and romances like "Gone With the Wind" when I entered my teenage years. Then I graduated to murder mysteries, science fiction, home decor, art techniques, and tear jerkers. I love to read just about anything (except maybe Stephen King, because he gives me nightmares!). And just like when I was a child, it's not uncommon to find me curled up in a blanket on my bed or the sofa, engrossed for the next few hours in a good book.

So when I heard about the special Celebrate the Haul-idays giveaway that Chronicle Books is doing, I was all over it! LOL Here's the deal: I pick out $500 worth of their books and put them on a wish list on my blog. And after December 10th, Chronicle Books will randomly choose a winning blog and one of its readers to win the shopping spree!

My wish list is chock full of artistic inspiration (because, really, can we ever get enough of that?!), home decor, jewelry design, European travel, and yummy baked treat cookbooks (definitely can't get enough of those! LOL):
