Giveaway: Day 1


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:

US and Canada only
No PO Boxes
One entry for commenting on this post.
One entry for following me.
One entry for blogging or tweeting this giveaway (be sure to let me know you've done this by posting a link).
Winner will be chosen the morning of July 9th (provided my plane gets in on time).


Come back tomorrow for Giveaway: Day 2. And as added interest, tomorrow's giveaway will be an international one from my own stacks.

  21. Hi! I'd love to win a copy of JULIE & JULIA. I'm looking forward to the movie: with Nora Ephron, Meryl Streep, and Amy Adams involved, I want to see it on opening night! I do prefer to "always read the book first" before seeing movie adaptations, and time is running out!

    Fingers crossed!
