ENDED Book Giveaway: Julie and Julia (My Year of Cooking Dangerously) By Julie Powell

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.

On a personal note: I loved this book. It is very entertaining and is a quick read. Perfect for those summer days when you want to read something light. I am looking forward to seeing the movie with Meryl Streep as Julia Child.
