May Cook Book Deals

Are you a cookbook addict? I am! I used to have a very large bookcase that was so full there were books stacked on top of it and on the leftover space on the shelves in front of the books. I was out of control. Luckily Amazon’s Kindle and digital books came along. At first it was just good for replacing my novel library but now with color tablets and Kindles you can read your favorite cookbooks with full effect. I have only purchased digital cookbooks for years now and I can’t pass up on a great deal.

These books are all $3.99 or less with most of them just $1.99.

Amid landscapes of plenty, Lundy weaves stories of her childhood and recipes, like sorghum butter and “real cornbread,” which is blond like a yellow cake and baked over browned butter in a cast-iron skillet.
