Cooking With Kindle, Part 2

'Way back in March 2009, I wrote a post about Cooking with Kindle where I talked about one particular cookbook that I had on my Kindle ebook reader.  Since that time, there have been some major advances and it's definitely time for me to post an update.

First, the selection of cookbooks for Kindle has increased from hundreds to multiple thousands, including Kindle versions of many traditional-version bestselling cookbooks.  Also, many public domain cookbooks have been converted to ebook format and can be found in the Kindle store for free or very cheap.  Additionally, there are now free reading apps so that you don't even have to own a Kindle to read Kindle books, including cookbooks! 

Secondarily, though of note to "real" cooks who sometimes get a little messy while they're working in the kitchen, there are also waterproof and splashproof covers for Kindle, a handy accessory for those of us who use Kindle cookbooks.

I've actually constructed an entire page online called Cookbooks for Kindle where I detail the information above, and more.  If you're interested in trying recipes on Kindle, I'd encourage you to do so by checking out that page first.  One title that I suggest is Julia's Kitchen Wisdom. It's a staple that should be in every cook's kitchen and translates very well to the ebook edition. Check it out and let me know how you like it.

Do you cook with Kindle?  I'd love a recommendation of your favorite e-cookbook.  Let us know in a comment below!
