Giveaway: Julie & Julia by Julie Powell


Giveaway



Thanks to Anna at Hachette, I have 5 copies of Julie & Julia: My Year of Cooking Dangerously by Julie Powell to give away.

Synopsis from Amazon:

Julie & Julia, the bestselling memoir that's "irresistible....A kind of Bridget Jones meets The French Chef" (Philadelphia Inquirer), is now a major motion picture. Julie Powell, nearing thirty and trapped in a dead-end secretarial job, resolves to reclaim her life by cooking in the span of a single year, every one of the 524 recipes in Julia Child's legendary Mastering the Art of French Cooking. Her unexpected reward: not just a newfound respect for calves' livers and aspic, but a new life-lived with gusto. The film is written and directed by Nora Ephron and stars Amy Adams as Julie and Meryl Streep as Julia.

I'll be reviewing it soon but here are the guidelines:

Hi, my first time here, arrived by way of west of mars.
I've always wanted to read this book and wondered why it's popping up in blogland again -now I know. It's being made into a movie.

I'd really like to read this book before the movie comes out. I bought it a while ago and gave it to a friend for her birthday. I wish I read it first! How tacky would that be though...

Oh! I'm very excited about this book and movie. Of course, I can't watch the picture without reading the story first so if I don't win, here I'll be picking it up soon.

Barbara said...

I guess I'll head over to the library's website and see if I can find it.
