Just finished Lean Mean Thirteen by Janet Evanovich, love her books! I used to read mainly thrillers but light reading is much more my thing since having kids.

I'm enjoying "As Always, Julia," the letters of Julia Child and Avis DeVoto by Joan Reardon. Julia shows us once again how outspoken she was. Loved that about her. You always knew just where she stood.
Thanks, June! I saw the reopened thread about Julia's books and I had always wanted to read this one. I will look for the letters book next!

All this Kindle stuff was kind of stressing me out because I didn't want another techie device (that's for DH!). But this way my netbook is endearing itself to me once more....once hubby fixes it after he loaded a non-compatible piece of software that is!
i've always admired julia for all the obvious reasons, but to now haven't read any books by or about her, and i'm ready. is my life in france a good place to start?
