Julie & Julia by Julie Powell
I just finished reading Julie Powell's book Julie & Julia. This was a fun and quick read, although I got a little bored with it in the middle. Julie decides to spend an entire year making every recipe from Julia Child's Mastering the Art of French Cooking. She even makes things like kidneys and sweetbreads and all that gross offal. Julie Powell is one of those people that you can really relate too, she is a big flaming liberal Democrat afterall.She blogs about it and becomes famous. The story really comes down to her discovering the joy of her own life and really finding herself. Definitely worth picking up at your local bookseller.
