Julie & Julia by Julie Powell Giveaway!

July 12th, 2009 by Debbie's World of Books


Thanks to Anna at Hachette Book Group I have 5 copies to giveaway!

Description: 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 version is written and directed by Nora Ephron and stars Amy Adams as Julie and Meryl Streep as Julia.

    I am so interested in this book, especially having seen the movie trailer. I love reading the book vs. watching the movie, because the books give you more insight into the characters: their motivation, background, etc., all of which can’t be covered in the space of a movie.
