musings from a "soiled and narcissistic whore."

I just returned home from Costco, or as I prefer to call it - Price Club, and guess what I found there? Your book. Yup, you've made it to wholesale heaven. I hope you don't mind that I purchased it there for the incredibly reasonable sum of $14.99 rather than a regular bookstore. (Might I add that there were only two copies left?!)Anyway, I thought you might find this interesting, so I thought I would share.When are those publisists of yours getting D.C. on the schedule? Keep up the good work, Julie!
I am sure you know this? Your book is reviewed in the current issue of British Vogue. Tres chic Julie!
When I finish a book I really, really like I grieve that it's come to an end. I'm thrilled to know that I can continue with the Julie & Julia Project via BLOG...I'll visit often! I'm new to the whole blogging trend--I know, where have I been?--but I make mention of you in mine which is actually just a generic knock-off of your original idea. I hope you agree that imitation is the sincerest form of flattery, though I can assure you, after reading your book, as much as I liked it I'll never attempt to make anything of the French persuasion--unless it's a French Fry--and I'm not sure if I'll ever even eat lobster again!!The book was awesome...I do hope you'll make your way to Indiana at some point. Would love to meet you!P.S. You sound much different than I expected...more sane perhaps?!
Hi Julie! This is Jess in Boston -- I was out of town when you were here, or I would have signed up for the Chez Henri dinner in a heartbeat. I'm so pleased you had a good experience in our lovely city (though I can't disagree w/you re: the drivers. I'm from NY originally, so I can say that without implicating myself, right?). Anyway, the boyfriend went to Borders last week and found a lingering signed copy, so now it's mine! all mine!! (heh. evil laugh here.)Thanks for making Boston one of your stops, only sorry I couldn't give my regards in person -- and enjoy the jacuzzi, if you're still in the vicinity! :)
hi there. i'm currently reading your book and i love it. it reminds me a lot of my life, minus all the cooking and semi-domestic stuff, as i am a fellow texan-turned-new yorker, living in brooklyn, and doing a kind of thankless, all-consuming arts internship. plus i also work in a bookstore cause we all know how well internships pay, which is how i found your book. anywho, i really love it, and just wanted to say so.ps - i worked with david strathairn this summer at a different internship (i'm racking them up). he was really quite nice, and the company is throwing a benefit gala after the new year where he'll be the guest of honor. small world. =)
