Crazy Good e-Book Bargains


Recommended Posts

Had to do that too. Although if I shared the author's name...I'd change it.

 

To do the clicky link: Highlight and copy (control+c on my Windows laptop, your mileage may vary) the URL of hte page you want to link to. Go back to your post, and type whatever text you want ("Here," "Clickety," or the name of the book, whatever). Highlight it with the cursor. Go up and click the little chain looking thingy at the top of the post. A window will open. In the top one of the two spaces that appear, paste the link you copied. Then either hit Enter or there may be a button to click to post it, I forget which. It should show your typed text word or words, in a different color or highlighted, and underlined. Then submit your post as usual.

My Social Security (old age pension) arrived today.  How could I say no to the Le Bernardin?  The introduction is a little sad.

 

 

What's almost as sad -- the required kitchen equipment list calls out for six copper bottomed pots.  Makes the Kindle price not so much of a bargain.

Thank you. Now let's see if my brain still has what's necessary to follow through.

Has this one been on sale before? Ruth Reichl's My Kitchen Year: 136 Recipes That Saved My Life for $1.99 for US Prime members. 

I'm feeling a bit under the weather today and have given myself permission to just sit and read this cookbook.  Really enjoying it, too!  Maybe it will inspire me to cook something exciting for dinner.

And this one: Well-Preserved: Recipes and Techniques for Putting Up Small Batches of Seasonal Foods. $1.99 US Kindle for Prime members.

 

 

 

 

That one was worth the money simply for the introduction alone! Some good laughs there, and the promise of good techniques to be learnt in future. Thanks, kayb.
