#GiveBooks Giveaway


I love giving and receiving books and with the holidays approaching I find myself  reviewing my own wish list as well as preparing shopping lists for others. Recently, Chronicle books asked if I would like to take part in their #GiveBooks campaign and in the process gift nine books to family and friends. I gladly accepted the challenge and I’m excited to announce that in the spirit of the holidays one lucky winner will win my gift picks.


For every #GiveBooks Facebook comment Pinterest pin, Chronicle Books will donate a book to children in need through First Book. The goal is to giveaway 10,000 books!


My list is stacked with design and architecture titles, but I’ve included a Tartine Box set for the food afficonados. Here’s what’s up for grabs:
