December 16, 2010 – A new website Eat Your Books helps members search for recipes in their own cookbooks. Eat Your Books is aimed at people who love using cookbooks, but desire the ease and convenience of searching online.

PRNewsWire brought this tasty information to our attention in their article, “Eat Your Books Brings Online Recipe Search to Cookbook Owners.” This new approach to indexing and making information findable for kitchen use offers many benefits. However, don’t worry about the copyright issues as Eat Your Books does not reproduce the actual recipe; it just helps members find their recipes in their cookbooks.

Personally, I think there is no substitute to browsing through cookbooks like they are the Sunday paper. I mark my pages with page tabs for future use, but unless you look at each tab – which in my case can be many – you can’t possibly remember them all. I like this concept and I like the technology that is making it happen. Eat Your Books has 79,000 cookbooks listed so far and more are being indexed every week. This new site is a subscription website and gift certificates are available for annual memberships.
