Giveaway: Julie & Julia

Julie & Julia
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 is written and directed by Nora Ephron and stars Amy Adams as Julie and Meryl Streep as Julia.
Many thanks to Anna and Hachette Book Group for allowing me to host this wonderful giveaway of five (5) copies. Unfortunately, according to Hachette rules the winner must have a valid U.S. or Canadian mailing address (no PO boxes). The giveaway will end on July 30th at midnight and the five (5) winners will be chosen by random.org on July 31st (my birthday!).

To be entered you must leave a comment with a valid email address. No email address = no entry. For an additional entry each you may complete the following:
+ 1 Follow this blog
+ 1 Subscribe to email rss (click on the orange book in the top right sidebar)
+ 1 Post about this giveaway somewhere on your blog (actual post or on the sidebar)
+ 1 Add this blog to your blogroll
+ 1 Follow me on twitter
+ 1 Add my blog button (with a link back to my blog) to your blog

Yep that's right, if you do all of the thing listed about you will be entered 7 times! Good luck and don't forget to come back on July 31st to find out who won! :) Or if you are unable to wait that long you can always go buy a copy since Julie & Julia was released on July 1st, 2009. ;)

I REALLY would love to read this book - for some reason they didn't require any Julia Childs books in my culinary school so I've only spent a bit of time reading her recipes.
