Give Books this Holiday!


I’m hosting a fun giveaway today from my publisher, Chronicle Books. Last year they launched a GIVE BOOKS holiday campaign to encourage people to share the love of books during the holiday season, to support local bookstores and to help promote literacy. And I’m excited that they are doing it again this year. But this year they are doing it bigger. Giving bigger. They’ve joined forces with First Book, a non-profit organization that provides access to new books for children in need. And for every #GiveBooks tweet, pin, and online pledge, Chronicle Books will donate a children’s book to First Book.

Here’s how you can help them reach their goal of giving 10,000 books this holiday with a simple tweet, pin or pledge.

  89. I would love to have the hand crafted candy bar cookbook!

  90. I would probably give half away and share the joy of baking/cooking. With the Snoopy set to someone with children. I would be keeping Little Paris Kitchen and the Candy Bars. Would love to try my hand at that.

  98. Cake pops, doughnuts, and the cupcake kit!

  99. I love them all but I have a dear friend who helps everybody almost all the time. She is very giving and I would give her the “Hand-Forged Doughnut” for Christmas. She loves to bake and is also a great cook and her last name is Cook!

  114. Cake pops, doughnuts, and the cupcake kit!

  115. Ms. Bakerella, it is much too hard to choose just one! So using the dart to the dartboard method I came up with Sticky Chewy Messy Gooey as my first choice.
