Do You Have 100s to 1000s of Cookbooks?

Do you have a house full of cookbooks? For whatever reason are you compelled to still buy more?

Wouldn’t it be nice to have a database with all the recipes listed from those books, plus an ingredient list? That way when you were in the mood for a particular dish, item or recipe you could simply search that online and it would tell you which cookbook it’s in that you have in your possession. That would be AMAZING!

Well guess what? Now you can! There’s a company that just recently formed called, Eat Your Books. I’m so excited about this idea that I had to share it with my readers. I signed up today for a 30 day free trial to see if it meets my expectations. If so, then after the 30 days I will agree to pay an annual fee of $25 and I can cancel whenever I want.

I started going through their library of books this evening but with over 80,000 books and over 290,000 recipes, I didn’t have the time to go through all of them. So I’ll have to go back a little each day during my trial period, and determine if this incredible concept will benefit me.

In addition to the Library, you then create your own Bookshelf. Plus, they have a Community Forum and Blog where you can talk with other members to share ideas and recipes.

There’s so much information regarding Eat Your Books that I think it would be best that you read about it first hand. Here’s the link “about” Eat Your Books.

Just imagine how valuable and time saving this could be! It would take me hours to go through each and every cookbook that I own trying to find a particular recipe. Now it’s as easy as searching for it online or at least that’s what they claim. I guess I’ll find out soon. I’m very hopeful!

Check it out and please let me know what you think.

  1. Yes, yes and YES! What a great concept, will have to look into it. I was wondering how they were going to get around copyright issues – but they have a good plan.

  2. It’s a wonder someone didn’t come up with the idea sooner. I’m very excited too!

  3. Hello Vicky!| THank you for sharing! I am so curios! will let u know 😉

  4. I will let you know. I sent an email to the company today asking some questions and they were so helpful. The woman that responded did say that it takes a little time to get set up but once you do it’s smooth sailing.

    I’m excited. I have a lot on my plate this week but hopefully I can get the ball rolling soon.

    Of course you can try the 30 day free trial as well to see if it works for you. You have nothing to lose.

    Thanks for your comments. Have a nice evening.

  5. Dear Vicky, I did the 30 days for free to begin. I have to find a little time and start the thing. but really, good tip!

  6. Let us know how it goes. I have to make the time as well to get all my books lined up on the Online Bookshelf.
