You know how it goes. The never-ending blog link. You find a blog you like to read and linked to that blog you spot many other links to blogs for you to explore and possibly even find a few more favorites to add to your ever expanding feeds list.
Since then I have been waiting for the book to come out.
Fast forward a bit over a year later. Then, yesterday, while reading the Seattle Times, coffee cup in hand, I came up upon a review of the just published book (it came out yesterday, Sept 28th) written by CeCe Sullivan: Finding one's self with a little help from Julia Child.
So I did what the news called for (as a food lover, home cook, fan of Julia Child, blogger and blog reader): I called my neighborhood's bookstore, the Barnes & Noble at Pacific Place, asked for the book, had one copy placed on hold and picked it up over lunch.
Mind you, when it comes to books it is Amazon (or eBay or Half.com) for me. It is only when I can't not wait to read a newly published book that I swing over to an independent. local seller such as the fabulous Elliott Bay.
But Julie's book was one of those that I had no problems paying retail for and could not wait to have it shipped to me. Julie and Julia : 365 Days, 524 Recipes, 1 Tiny Apartment Kitchen is right now inside my work tote. I will start reading it later today.
Personally, I can't wait to gobble it up.
