Kindle: The Convenient Way to Collect Cookbooks!

Have a new Kindle ebook reader or maybe a new Kindle Fire tablet? You'll love it! Now you need to fill it with books. Here's an idea: How about a selection of cookbooks for Kindle? Need help choosing? Well, you've come to the right place.

Read below to find out why I recommend cookbooks for Kindle and to see my e-cookbook suggestions and a few personal reviews. I've included some of my favorites, as well as information about giving ebooks as gifts (it's super-simple), and of course you can buy them for yourself, too!

I'm getting hungry, how about you? Tuck in your napkin and let's get started.

P.S. Did you know that you don't need to own a Kindle to read Kindle ebooks? Download a free reading app for your phone or PC from any of the cookbook product pages linked below and you'll be all set!

Tip: When using a recipe on your Kindle, be sure to protect the device from splashes or spills.

Why Buy Cookbooks for Kindle?

1. Save time.

2. Save space.

3. Save money.


Reason 1: Save Time

First of all, why buy Kindle books at all? In today's mobile society, so many people are on the go all the time and portable electronic devices are more common than cars. Having reading material available whenever and wherever you need it is now a reality - and a wonderful convenience. I know I do. In fact, I try to take a Kindle with me wherever I go.

Since Kindle ebooks can be read on a number of electronic devices besides the Kindle itself, let's say that you left your Kindle at home but you have your iPhone with you at the grocery store. Access your cookbook using one of the free reading apps (available for most smart phones as well as your iPad or iPod and your PC or Mac) to see the ingredients of that recipe you were going to prepare tonight but you forgot to include on your shopping list - and save time. Cool!

Reason 2: Save Space

So, why buy cookbooks for Kindle? For me, one of the most important reasons is to save space. Let's face it: most of us have too much stuff. Our bookshelves are full, our kitchens are crowded. But we all love to read and we do love collecting cookbooks (or you probably wouldn't be reading this page). Kindle is the easy and obvious solution! Even the smallest model holds over 1000 books. How many cookbooks will your kitchen hold?

Going minimalist? Many people, especially baby boomers and seniors, are paring down and moving out to smaller houses, apartments, and even RV's. It's a piece of cake to carry your entire library, including the cookbooks, with you in your pocket or purse.

In my particular situation, our family suffered a house fire a few years ago and I lost all of my cookbooks (and everything else in the house). Rather than replacing them with print books, I've been collecting new cookbooks electronically. Know what? The only cookbooks I have to store - and dust - are a few that were given to me as gifts. I love the minimalist approach!

Reason 3: Save Money with Cookbooks for Kindle

Another reason I buy cookbooks for my Kindle is to save money. While not true across the board, in the vast majority of cases ebooks are less expensive than their paper, or so-called "dead tree" counterparts. It's easy to compare the prices of hardback, paperback, and the electronic version of each book in the Kindle store. Just click on the link for the book and the available formats and their respective prices will be displayed "above the fold" near the top of the listing. Sometimes there's a good reason to buy a "real" book, but if you can save money with an electronic version with a good, usable format - well, those pennies and dollars do add up! Personally, I have dozens of cookbooks now and I've spent very little money to acquire them. In fact, many of my favorites were free!

Convinced? Take a look (below) at a couple of examples of Kindle cookbooks that I own, like, and recommend. You'll find a featured favorite cookbook (I update this section often, frequently with free books) as well as a selection of bestsellers and more bargain cookbooks that I enjoy and think you'll like, too.

A Few Cookbook Recommendations for Your Kindle

The Four Season Farm Gardener's Cookbook

The Four Season Farm Gardener's Cookbook
The Four Season Farm Gardener's Cookbook

Planting a garden this year? I think you'll find this book helpful. Check it out when you're in the planning stages. Or at harvest time to find out how to use all those fresh, beautiful vegetables.

This e-cookbook is easy to navigate on either the Kindle reader or the Fire tablet. Because of the book's beautiful color pictures, you may prefer reading this from your tablet. But don't pass up the book if you only have a reader. You won't want to miss the pages and pages of great gardening advice and delicious recipes.

Read on for my review.

 

Do you actually eat what you grow in your garden? Perhaps you want to learn how to plant an organic garden, or how to choose plants based on your family's tastes and preferences rather than randomly selecting whatever catches your eye at the garden center. Want to know which variety of kale is a good choice for a salad garden and how to prepare it? I've just found a fabulous book that will help you solve all these problems and more.

The book is written in two closely-related parts, really two books in one. The gardening section is absolutely great, very informative with advice that's easy to understand and implement. You'll learn all about preparing the soil, choosing the right crops and where, when, and how to plant and nurture them, with instruction on everything you'll need to help your garden produce food that is not only delicious but nutritious.

The cooking section involves starting with the ingredients from your garden then improvising recipes around them. You're not on your own, though; there are 120 wonderful recipes to get you started and keep you eating throughout the growing season as your harvest dictates. What could be better than a roasted pepper and tomato dip on a summer's day when the ingredients arrive in the kitchen still warm from the sun shining on the garden? Or perhaps you can look forward to a creamy fall vegetable soup as the days get shorter and the butternut squash ripens. Use the recipe variations provided or invent your own. Creativity is key and you'll be inspired to experiment and invent new recipes as the growing season provides new produce on a weekly or even daily basis.

This book is a pleasure to read. The two authors' love of both gardening and consuming freshly-harvested food is both obvious and contagious. Word pictures abound. If you've been thinking about gardening but are still in need of a nudge to start planning or working in either a garden or a kitchen, surrounded by food that you've had a hand in producing from seed to harvest, you'll find that motivation within this book's 496 pages.

This is a beautiful, professionally written, edited, and produced book. Every time I pick it up, I find it hard to put down.

4.6 stars from 85 reader reviews.

Need Spinach Recipes? Add this cookbook to your collection.

This little book, packed full of amazing spinach recipes, would make an awesome addition to your Kindle cookbook collection.

The color pictures inside look especially tasty on my Kindle Fire tablet.

How to Give a Kindle Cookbook as a Gift

Every book in the Kindle store includes a "Give as a Gift" link that makes giving ebooks fast and easy. All you need is the recipient's email address!

Want the book for yourself? Add it to your Wish List!

Another of my Favorite Kindle Cookbooks

Susanne, the Hillbilly Housewife, always puts together fabulous books and this one, called Homemade Mixes: Make it Yourself and Save, is no exception. I recently featured this as a freebie and liked it so much, I decided to feature it a while longer (though it's no longer free except with Kindle Unlimited) because I think you'll really love this one.

From a "cream of soup" mix that I can't wait to try, to corn bread mix, lemon pepper seasoning, pancake or waffle mix, even a homemade Shake and Bake mix, you'll find a long list of recipes and plenty of healthful mixes (versus the supermarket varieties that are so often filled with additives) that you'll want to try. While it's periodically featured for free, it's also worth every penny of the $2.99 bargain price tag (price subject to change).

Remember to check the price before you hit that "one click" button to add it to your Kindle library.

 

Thank You for Reading!

If you're a Kindle owner, or are considering a new Kindle reader or Fire tablet, remember that there are hundreds of thousands of books available, including lots of cookbooks but also books on any topic you can imagine. Some are free, many are very inexpensive, and a good number are available to borrow with programs such as Kindle Unlimited. You'll see information about that program on any of the books linked above.

If you're still looking for information about your Kindle, I can help you there, too. Simply check out the related articles below or leave me a question in the comments section. I love to talk about cookbooks - and Kindle!

      I think the navigation issue is a factor, too, especially in certain cookbooks that are more encyclopedic. Downsizing is a good idea, but fortunately that isn't an issue on my Kindle since I have a hard time parting with books, even cookbooks. Thanks, Barbara!

      I have a Kindle, but for cookbooks I still prefer my paper editions. Since we've changed the way we eat and I hardly ever cook anymore, I'm getting rid of many cookbooks to conserve space. Cookbooks are reference books for me. They are much easier for me to navigate and use in paper form.

      Sylvestermouse, you could buy a waterproof cover, but honestly a large Ziplock bag works very well. I tend to make messes when I'm cooking or baking, so I don't like to leave my Kindle open to an accidental splash or flying food from the mixer. I'm sure you know what I mean! Thanks so much for commenting on that. I hope other people notice it, too!

      I do have a few cookbooks on my Kindle. I must comment though about your ingenious idea for putting the kindle in a ziplock bag!!! Worrying about the damage I would do to my Kindle has previously kept me from actually using it in the kitchen. That will be much easier than writing down instructions and recipes just to use them.

      I don't own a Kindle, but I do own a couple of iPads, and I have cookbooks on those. It's so easy to follow a recipe on an electronic reader. Much easier than with a cookbook on a stand. Then there's the environmental consideration, which is so critical today.

      I think Kindle cookbooks are a grand idea. Most of the time I only use a handful of recipes from a cookbook, so this way, I don't have to own the book and store it on a shelf to get to my favorites.

      I have something other than a Kindle, but I use my gift cards for cookbooks. I love having them on my Nook. Someone asked why I wouldn't have something I could touch, feel, skip through easily - and I told them I'd learned and adapted to the technology to incorporate what I love and be comfortable. I am not the greatest cook, but I love trying new things and I love my tablet.

      I have all of my new favorite recipes with me when I visit family. Some of them are still adjusting (and may never switch over to electronic forms), but I love being able to introduce them to new ideas without lugging around pounds and pounds of books.

      here is another tip. if you use your kindle with cookbooks in the kitchen, you can get something called a Document Holder from staples or other office stores. they're pretty cheap. basically it's a little stand and youc an put the kindle on it while you cook so that if anything spills, the liquids won't get on your kindle. happy cooking! :)

      I enjoy picking a recipe from the Kindle, propping it up on the counter, and voila ... ready to cook! You have some wonderful looking selections. =D

      Brilliant idea. I don't have a Kindle, although it gets higher and higher up on my wishlist.

      The Kindle has sure come a long way in a hurry. The more I read about it the more I like it.

      Great idea. We travel a lot and bring our family cookbook, it sure would be nice to have it so easily available.

      Since I'm not that interested in getting a Kindle, I hadn't thought about using one in the kitchen. Cookbooks are the one thing I can really see myself liking about them.

      I would love to have a Kindle. It's really starting to make sense instead of having a shelf full of books.

      These are a great idea for the cook in the house. Kindle is a hot item right now, and these will make a wonderful gift too.

      Kindle is top on my wish list and now I have to add cookbooks for my (hopefully) new Kindle. Great lens! Jenga is building.

      I'd love to have a Kindle. And I already know the cookbook I'd order for it.

      Congrats on completing the challenge! I hope you won't mind if I make a blog post out of these suggestions :) Ofcourse I won't copy your content, will just highlight the books recommended by you.

      Kindle readers sound interesting. The kindle would certainly take up much less space than real cookbooks.

      Great information on cookbooks and cookbooks for Kindle. I really think I must have a Kindle. I'll ask Santa.
