That, and Rosa's Thai Cafe. The explanation of ingredients alone is worth $0.99.

From this afternoon's browsings:

 

Not a cookbook but how to select and grow great tomatoes...
Craig LeHoullier's "Epic Tomatoes: How to Select and Grow the Best Varieties of All Time" Kindle Edition $2.51US

There are a lot of positive reviews for this book.

 

One of the reviews said this next book seemed like a cookbook from the '70's because it didn't have any photos. That being said, it has quite a number of positive reviews:

"Classic Sourdoughs, Revised: A Home Baker's Handbook" Kindle Edition $1.99US
Use the "Look Inside" feature to see the list of recipes.

 

I am a US Prime member and the price you see may vary.

@Toliver Thank you.  As a newcomer to baking with sourdough I was happy to pick up the Sourdough book.

I adore a sourdough with a nice tang to it. I can't read the bread threads on eGullet and view all of the pictures without drooling. It's almost Pavlovian. xD

I don't bake but look forward to it when I retire. I am learning from your efforts. Keep posting!

Some cookbooks from the TASTE email I received this afternoon:

 

"The Big Book of Sides: More than 450 Recipes for the Best Vegetables, Grains, Salads, Breads, Sauces, and More: A Cookbook" Kindle Edition $1.99US
Use the "Look Inside" feature and scroll down to see a list of recipes (by holidays/events, etc) and scroll further down to see some recipes. Amazon's info page for this cookbook seems to show an oddly spaced list of recipes from the cookbook.

 

Richard Bertinet's award-winning book "Dough: Simple Contemporary Bread" Kindle Edition $.99US

There's supposed to be a 30-minute DVD included giving additional guidance. Not sure how that is being handled by Kindle. It may be part of the download which is indicated on the Amazon info page that it may take longer to download due to file size.

 

Anne Byrn's "American Cookie: The Snaps, Drops, Jumbles, Tea Cakes, Bars & Brownies That We Have Loved for Generations" Kindle Edition $2.99US
Recipes come with lessons about the history of the cookies.

 

A little pricier than what I normally post...
Giada De Laurentiis' "Giada's Italy: My Recipes for La Dolce Vita" Kindle Edition $3.99US

 

And even more pricier, but still a sale-price (this is the first time I've seen any of Ina Garten's cookbooks come down in price):
Ina Garten's "Cooking for Jeffrey: A Barefoot Contessa Cookbook" Kindle Edition $4.99US
There's a recipe for "Maple-Roasted Carrot Salad" on this cookbook's Amazon info page.

Thanks.  I bought Dough.

 

I too bought Dough and I also purchased Crust.  Each was $0.99.  Crumb is more expensive so I passed.

Recipes sorted by seasons. No listing but if you use the "Look Inside" feature and scroll down, you can see some of the recipes.

I bought Sides.  It's not clear how to navigate it as a cookbook.  There's no list of recipes (even un-linked).  The index, which runs 23 pages in the print book, is not reproduced in the kindle version.  It wouldn't be too difficult to include it as a "list of searchable terms,"  if not as links.

That’s annoying! I see the book is indexed on Eat Your Books, so that’s an option

I read the James Herriot books years ago and loved them.  I would have bought them again but the Kindle edition is no longer for sale.
