Julia Child, can you ever get enough?
I am a fan of Julia Child. Julia was an American chef, author, and television personality. Actually, if I had to choose a real life person who is my hero, Julia Child would rank high in my order. She lived to be 91, and virtually everyone who met her said she was a joy to be around (but tough) and had a personality of eternal sunshine. I have made it one of my bucket list items to study her life through studying her autobiographies, biographies, videos and any other material that I can unearth.
My favorite Julie Child books include:
I have read all of the above, cover to cover, savoring each as I read each chapter. I would never allow myself more than one chapter a day as I felt like if I finished the book, I would no longer have Julia in my thoughts. Crazy, right? Deep book readers can relate, I am sure!
How I read now, Audiobooks via Audible. **EXCLUSIVE COUPON**
Being a blogger, I am soooo busy that I don’t really read now as much as I would like. As a result, I have taken up listening to Audiobooks in the car. What a wonderful solution to my reading dilemma, but going to the library is a hassle and all those audio CDs always skip. Also, I never return the Audiobooks on time so I always have tons of late fees. However, I discovered Audible! Audible is an Amazon company with over 100,000 audible programs that can you can download and play on over 500 devices, including my Note 3! It was super simple to sign up for Audible. I found 5 great exclusive coupon on Coupons.com. Check out these 3 great exclusive Audible Promo Codes that I found on Coupons.com:

Now I can discover more of the best Julia Child books!
I found over 26 Julia Child related books on Audible. With my exclusive Coupons.com code for Audible, I signed up for a free month of Audible and I downloaded my free audiobook. I choose a Julia Child biography by Noel Fitch “Appetite for Life“. The book would have been $34 normally, as a member I would have paid $25 for this 24 hours of audio programming BUT with the Audible Promo code, I got it free! Whoot! Next, I am going to listen to A Covert Affair (about Julia’s experiences as a member of the Office of Strategic Services (OSS) in the Far East during World War II.), followed by Dearie and then A Chef’s Table.
It’s so fun to have the book with me, on my phone, anywhere I am. I feel like I have my old friend Julia back and a great way to listen to all the titles about her I still want to read. I highly recommend Audible!
