Thanks for the link!  I was not finding it on my own.  I bought Bayless for 99 cents.

 

Sorry, only seeing it now.  Glad you found it!

Wow - some very good books on that list!  

 

No kiddin'. I bought, oh, I think four of 'em.

 

Would have bought two or three more, but for the fact I already had them in hardback.

 

The Cuban Table, Ad Hoc at Home, Bouchon, and New England Soup Factory. I already had Bayless and Pepin. And Vivian Howard in hardback. Contemplated Bourdain, and passed.

Devil rum.  While enjoying my mai tai I went back and ordered Hip Pressure cooking (I'd already read the book but it doesn't hurt to support an eGullet friend), The Cuban Table, Bouchon, and Essential Pepin.

 

Though I shall never forgive Pepin, his heirs and assigns for Howard Johnson ice cream being served in hot metal cups.

I read the preview of Well Fed: Paleo Recipes for People Who Love to Eat and went back to order it.  But then I reflected my Sardinian dinner tonight was potatoes, pasta, and bread.  I thought better of it.

Yeah, in addition to Kindle (.azw) there's also .epub, .pdf, .mobi, .odf and others.

I have many Kindle, pdf, epub and mobi cookbooks.

This is from Calibre's website—a popular e-book manager:

Very often, but not always, books that are dirt-cheap on Kindle are also dirt-cheap on other ebook platforms as well. If you see something listed here as a Kindle book but you prefer a different platform, check it out on your preferred ebookstore. It may be bargain-basement priced there also.

Thanks, @MelissaH. Two were on my wish list -- Crossroads and Israeli baking.

I have to blame graciously thank both  @MelissaH & @Anna N for enabling me.  I'd been going back and forth on the Israeli baking book and seeing it mentioned again and again pushed me over the edge.  

Of course, while I was navigating to that book, I also had to add Back Pocket Pasta: Inspired Dinners to Cook on the Fly @ $2.99 to my collection.

I don't know whether to thank or curse the lot of you.  The Israeli Baking book is my 5th or 6th book acquisition in 3 days. Bargains, indeed.  O.o

The Back Pocket Pasta was  no deal for me (Canada non-prime) but I would be curious to hear what you think of it.

 This time I checked my library before I bought it.  I am convinced there are employees at Amazon who snigger at people like me who keep trying to buy books they already own.  Keeps me up at night.

A couple more:

Soframiz, by Ana Sortun and Maura Kilpatrick ($1.99) has wonderful-looking Middle East-inspired baked goods, and was fun reading.

Pok Pok, by Andy Ricker and JJ Goode ($2.99) was also fun reading, with doable-looking recipes from the eponymous Thai restaurants.
