As promised, here's the giveaway for a good seven days of giveaways here on BookNAround. In honor of the upcoming movie: Hatchette is allowing me to give away five copies of Julie and Julia: My Year of Cooking Dangerously by Julie Powell. I read this last year (when I was in a reviewing slump, I might add so no review for it) and thoroughly enjoyed it. I am looking forward to seeing the movie and am pleased as punch that I can offer five of you who haven't yet experienced this entertaining read a chance to read the book as well. Sorry, movie tickets will not accompany your book should you be one of the lucky winners.
For those you who don't know the premise of this fun narrative non-fiction book, here's amazon's blurb:
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.
And now for the rules:
