Oh, and also - keep your eyes peeled for a thoroughly bitchy review in this weekend's NYT Book Review. Written by a contributor to Vanity Fair Magazine, which published a piece about how Nigella Lawson is an overweight Jewish husband-murderer, so we don't care, do we?

you know what? A NY Times review is a NY Times review. Someone in high places thinks it's note-worthy.

Plus, can it be any better/worse than Joe Queenan's review of AJ Jacobs in which Queenan called Jacobs a Jackass. Or if it is, you can SOOOOOO get a good story out of it!

Besides, Julie--you're in the top 100 books at Amazon!

Your book is my staff pick this month, so pffft. I've sold four just on my verbal recommendation last week.

Two stores in WI and none in Minneapolis? Sadness.

Agh, can't get to Bryant Park this weekend. We moved to NJ and are in the hellish throes of unpacking and settling in. (I HATE MOVING!) Apropos of nothing, I used to occasionally take a bus from Queens Plaza and pass right by your place on my way home. Damn, what a noisy street that must much truck and bus traffic.

You're signing at Powell's in Portland? Hee! Keep an eye out for their store cat.

Nigella is a goddess. Of course we don't care what this twerp writes.

But of course, had we been through what you've undoubtedly been through in the writing of this puppy, we jolly well WOULD care, and care deeply! Does Julia offer any recipes for "Thick Skin"?

I know! I'm actually reading with AJ Jacobs at the Big Read this weekend! So we can commiserate! That was the worst thing ever...

I just read my LA Times review, and I have come to the conclusion that men, as a race, excluding one, are just a bunch of fucking assholes.

Best interview ever! You looked great.

Wouldn't you know that normally I watch Today, but my husband was flipping channels just as your segement on Good Morning America was ENDING! I was in the kitchen making my coffee and I heard "Jlie Powell" and i was like "WHAAAATTTT?!", ran to the TV and you were gone. So depressing! I am sure it was great.

p.s. Where are the DC area appearences? Unfair! ; ) not your fault, i know.

I saw the LA Times one, too. And I agree the author was lame.

But after living in LA for 10 years, I'm going to blame food snobs instead of all men. ;-) LA has so little to be proud of that it tries to make it FOOD LOVE a badge of honor.


I'm so psyched for you!

I'm happy to see you'll be busy, busy, busy promoting your book, but I'm very sad to see you won't be coming to Denver. Tattered Cover is a great place to have a reading! Can you suggest to your publicist that they add on a date or two in my fair city?

I get to Seattle on Friday, so will *just* miss you. Grr. Please give our Nation's Capital a chance. Olsson's Book is a great indy bookstore, as is Kramer Books, and god knows we would LOVE to have you.

I'm re-reading your book slowly and finding it funnier the second time, plus you keep showing up as a minor character in my long night of dreams where nothing can come to closure and again and again my co-workers and my family conspire to make me crazy (which is true in life and should be excluded from all dreams, in my opinion).

Keep up the good work Julie! You look fantastic, and sound great, and if you can keep this up, will certainly get the movie made.

And of course -- you will be in Cambridge when I will be in Arizona, of all places! Man. Please keep us posted if any of the dates/places change (especially if there will be another Boston/Cambridge/Massachussets wherever (!) visit!) Missed the TV thing today, but congratulations for all the publicity. Enjoy!

Hi Julie! I just heard of your book and your blog today, and I am so impressed in so very many ways.

In addition to being impressed, I feel like I have found a kindred spirit. I, too, am an actress from Austin, Texas. I'm around your age, working in a suck-y secretarial day job, living in a crappy small apartment in New York with a crappy small kitchen, constantly asked when I am going to "settle down and have some children". And my hobby is cooking! And I actually started blogging two days ago to make me feel better about my life. But it's not about cooking.

So, good for you! I applaud you and your success, and I can't wait to read your book.

I wish I could make it to your book signing in Bryant Park, but I'll try to make the one in Astor Place. And I'm sending my mom to the one in Austin.

Review in the Saturday edition of the WSJ!

I marked my calendar for your Austin Book People visit.

Safe travels!

Hi, Julie. I took a pic of you at yesterday's NYT Great Read event. Would like you to have it, but can't find an email address. Must be me. Anyway, if interested:
