Nicholas Sparks, Julie Powell Audio Book Giveaways

The Hachette Audio Book group has two audio books available for a December giveaway.

The December featured audio book from Hachette Book Group is Nicholas Spark’s novel DEAR JOHN, which is a soon-to-be released major motion picture from Sony Pictures starring Channing Tatum (“G.I. Joe”) and Amanda Seyfield (“Mamma Mia”).

The movie is scheduled for the theaters just in time for Valentine’s Day, Feb. 5, 2010. The audio book edition of DEAR JOHN is read by actor and voice over artist Holter Graham.

The second audio book is CLEAVING.

Her marriage challenged by an insane, irresistible love affair, Julie decides to leave town and immerse herself in a new obsession: butchery. She finds her way to Fleischer's, a butcher shop where she buries herself in the details of food. She learns how to break down a side of beef and French a rack of ribs--tough, physical work that only sometimes distracts her from thoughts of afternoon trysts.

The camaraderie at Fleischer's leads Julie to search out fellow butchers around the world--from South America to Europe to Africa. At the end of her odyssey, she has learned a new art and perhaps even mastered her unruly hear
