Eat Your Books
The term “e-book” has been getting thrown around a lot lately—the latest trend in publishing. But what about “edible” books? I have a collection of cookbooks that I’ve paged through once, made a single recipe, and then are left forgotten, in favor of single-page recipes I’ve printed off the internet. But Eat Your Books is a service that lets you search your cookbooks’ content online. The subscription site, $25 for a year, $50 for life, catalogues the recipes from books you own, and makes them searchable through an online portal. If a title you own isn’t in the 16,000-plus book database, you can request the company to add it. Generate a shopping list, or tag recipes for later—EatYourBooks.com is the way to streamline your edible literature and make your cookbooks more user friendly.
