You’re going to love EYB Book Preview and EYB Recipe PreviewMarch 23, 2018 by Jenny
Cooks and cookbook lovers are visual people. Just as we eat with our eyes first, many cookbook buyers prefer to physically browse through a title at a bookstore or library before making a commitment to purchase the volume.
Wouldn’t it be wonderful if you could thumb through pages from a new cookbook without leaving the comfort of your home? Well, now you can do just that. We’re excited to announce EYB Book Preview and EYB Recipe Preview, which allows you to view a selection of pages from a title – including photographs, illustrations, and complete recipes – with just a click. When you combine this resource with our invaluable index and Jenny’s amazing reviews, you will come away with a solid feel for the style, tone, and layout of the latest releases.
The screenshots below walk you through the steps to preview books and recipes. Our goal is to provide you with a robust sample, including 2 to 5 full recipes just as they appear in the cookbook, including photographs or illustrations.
Below the thumbnail image of the cookbook cover, you will see a button for the EYB Book Preview. Clicking that button takes you to the preview, which operates in a similar manner to an e-book. Left and right arrows at the page edges allow you to navigate through the sample.
When performing a search or browsing through a cookbook index, if a recipe excerpt is included in the preview, you willl see a button titled EYB Recipe Preview. Clicking this link will take you directly to the preview page that contains the recipe. You’ll be able to zoom in and out on the pages (especially handy for those of us who constantly misplace our reading glasses). If the recipe spans several pages, you can also flip back and forth between them.
as well as a filter for recipes that can be previewed.
Both of these features should work on desktop, tablet, and mobile devices. We are rolling out this feature on select titles listed below, and we will be adding additional books soon. Be sure to watch the Weekly and Monthly Roundups for links to previews for new titles as we add them.
- First We Eat
- Short Stack Cookbook
- Orange Appeal
- New Orleans Kitchen
- Simply Citrus
- Black Girl Baking
- Secret Layer Cakes
- Super Tuscan
There are EYB Book Previews available for the following titles which are in the process of being indexed. While you can preview the book the recipe option isn’t available until the index is complete.
We extend a hearty thank you to the publishers who have given us permission to highlight and promote their titles in this manner. Please let us know what you think of EYB Book Preview with a comment.
