"Find something you're passionate about and keep tremendously interested in it." -Julia Child

Sometime around August a movie came out called Julie & Julia. It looked fascinating. A woman (Julie Powell) living in New York City decided to cook her way through Julia Childs' cook book Mastering the Art of French Cooking.
I was holding out on the movie with hopes to watch it with someone who might enjoy it just as much as I would. Before that happened I found myself browsing Target with Aunt Grace and Katie. Katie pointed to the book and said "Hey that's the movie you were talking about!" I had no idea it was a book! I snagged it and began to read. While I cant say the book was the best I've ever read, it was in fact interesting. Also, be forewarned she swears a lot.

Being a blogger myself I could relate to a lot of her blogging experiences. I also would like to adopt her term for her blog readers. She calls blog readers "bleaders." Don't think that I am assuming you are spouting the red stuff just from reading my blog if I call you "bleaders."
Julie's novel and movie are in fact based off of real experiences,

and the real deal blog can be found <here.>

Movie trailer can be found <here.>

This is the cover of the book I purchased.

This book cover would have made the book worth keeping in my library.

Yep. I judge (and keep) books by their covers.
PS. I have not yet seen the movie. I have no idea how they compare. ALSO I am not posting too many statements or conclusions on the book because at least ONE of my bleaders is in the process of finishing the book.
