Featured Recipes, EYBDigital Previews and Books, Giveaways and Ideas for Mother’s and Father’s Day Gifts

Eat Your Books (EYB) is a website for people who love cookbooks and want to make better use of the great recipes from those books. With EYB, a member can create their own personal Bookshelf and quickly find recipes from their cookbooks, food magazines, food blogs, personal recipe clippings, and favorite online recipes. New cookbooks (as well as older titles) are indexed every week. For more information on what we do here, please see our Help pages.

Last week, we discussed recipe search and filtering options. Today let’s talk about searching our library for cookbook titles and how to filter those results. Most of us know how to add books to our Bookshelves, though if you need a refresher please view Tutorial 1 from Need Help? at bottom right (not available on phones) or look at our Help page on this topic. Since there are 158,750+ books in our Library, a step-by-step photo tutorial may help new members when searching for titles on a certain subject. 

You will note on the photo below the library icon is green, which means that part of the database is selected. This tab allows you to search all the cookbook titles and recipes in our EYB database. The My Bookshelf icon denotes members’ personal Bookshelves which we will cover in a future roundup.

The photo above is a screen shot of the library page with a grand total of 158,766 books as at the time of writing. You will note that Happiness is Baking is on the top of the listing of titles which signifies that this book was the most recent one indexed (our default for sorting). You can also sort the Library, using Sort by on the right of the search bar, by title, author, date added to Library, date published, buzz (ratings and notes) and popularity. Below I will cover a few filtering options.

The photo above reflects the library page of titles when the EYBDigital Preview filter is applied. Any books that have an EYBDigital Preview available will show up when that filter is chosen. You will note there are currently 389 EYBDigital Previews in the Library, where you can view an extract from the book. 

The photo above shows library listing when the Indexed Books filter is applied. That filter will pull up all indexed titles in our Library (you will note there are over 8,500 cookbooks that are currently indexed).


The photo above shows the book type filters in the library. If a member wants to search for baking cookbooks, the “baking” filter brings up cookbooks that are categorized as baking titles.

Members can search by any number of filters to find books that focus on Cooking Methods, Drinks & Beverages and more.

In each weekly roundup we will bring you additional information on other features here at EYB. If you have any questions, please email us at info@eatyourbooks.com and we will be happy to help!
