Just ordered this book from kalahari.com (who are offering free delivery until the 30 Nov). I have been dying to read this book (before watching the movie) so cannot wait to get it.
If you looking for a great holiday read: "Julie and Julia is a true story of Julie who lives a boring and unsuccessful life. She decided to make her life worthy by cooking and blogging about Julia Child's recipes for 365 days. The story shows the life of the famous chef, Julia Child, her beginnings and way to success in 1950's as it intertwines to Julie's life at the present time and how Julia's life affects Julie's." Write up from here
Sounds sweet doesn't it?
