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.
