From Tablet to Table – Checkout these Tasty E-book Titles!

ImageA delicious meal is one click away when you download a digital cookbook from our Overdrive collection!  The Fountaindale Public Library has nearly 300 cookbook titles available for checkout 24-hours a day, seven days a week!

E-cookbooks are a visual treat!  If you have a color screen e-reader, you can read the book in full color with pictures!  Depending on the type of e-reader you own, you can zoom in and out on a recipe, browse the table of contents, and select a receipt with a tap of your finger (or button)! Think of it – you can download and browse a cookbook during your lunch break, stop by the grocery store after work, and have your recipe ready to go when you get home.   There are great cases and holders for your reader, which allow you to use your device in the kitchen while you’re cooking, so don’t be afraid to give it a try!

If you don’t have an e-reader, you can check out an e-book on your home computer.  This is great for browsing and reading if you’re on your computer.  I don’t recommend taking your computer into the kitchen with you, but if you already have one set up there, let me know how that works!

Our downloadable cookbook collection is certainly pleasing to the palate!  Are you looking to create easy family meals?  Try reading Simply Suppers by Jennifer Chandler, Gooseberry Patch’s Weeknight Dinners, or Yum-o! the Family Cookbook by Rachael Ray.
