Eat Your Books -- New Version Out [Moved from Home Cooking]

I have been meaning to start a new thread on since the other has grown so long that it is taking a while to load. I have just begun exploring the new iteration, and so far, it seems like an improvement...

      "Friends" is one of the "missing" features that they are working on. I wish they'd hurry up and start indexing more books!


      1. re: The Dairy Queen

        Yes, I keep checking for more indexed books, but it's not happening.

        1. re: pikawicca

          I know, I've been checking, too.

          They say (in that missing features link I gave aboce) that they can't index any books while they are updating the indexing feature to enable users to index cookbooks... I hope the wait isn't too long... And I hope users actually DO index cookbooks, thereby making this wait worthwhile!


    2. Here's a link to the old thread, by the way. Almost 500 posts!

      Also, I've been meaning to comment on SMtuckers post wherein she says "Did discover that you can't remove a bookmark. Instead you have to remove the book from your bookshelf and then add it back."

      Actually, I don't think that's true. All you need to do is find the book on your book shelf, then click on the book's title. That should bring up four tabs: recipes, notes, bookshelves, and more detail. If you click on the "more detail" tab, you'll see all of your "categories" off to the right. To delete a category, just click the "X" next to the category.

      I hope that's clear.

        Just found this thread, and the new build does include this feature. I am using it regularly now as I rotate books in and out of the COTM. Thanks for the note.

      2. I can tell this is going to be a huge time sink, I mean time saver, for me. I was a bit lost in the old thread (since I just signed up today) perhaps it was becauase of this new version. Regardless, I'm loving the site, and was able to add 42 cookbooks just from memory. I can't wait to get cooking! THANK YOU!!!

        1. hey hey hey, I just noticed a NEW book has been indexed on EYB...Maybe we're up and running again?

            Yes, and now I'm thinking I need a muffin book, since I don't have one. I must get this cookbook addiction under control.

            1. re: The Dairy Queen

              Scroll down and you will find LOTS of new books! Why has this discussion been moved to NAF? It's a cookbook conversation, and should be on Home Cooking. The NAF folks are not going to be interested, while the HC folks are.

            2. I have been enjoying using this site recently. It is perfect for "now, where was that recipe again" moments, plus I used it to help me decide on which veal stew recipe to make. All in all, it grows more useful each time I got to the site.
