The interesting San Francisco-based publisher Chronicle is hosting an awesome contest for the second consecutive year. They’ll give one fortunate blogger a sleigh full of books — $500 worth. That’s not all; Chronicle will give one commenter on the winning blog post the same free books. And they’ll give one charity up to $500 of books.
Holy bookmobile! I’m not passing up that offer — and neither should you. If I were the winner, I’d love to see Chronicle donate books to RIF, Reading Is Fundamental. While affluent families have access to books all the time, few poor children own any books at all. RIF is in danger of being eliminated from the federal budget, yet this organization is an efficient and organized network that manages to get books to children most in need of them. Books and children belong together!
