Eat Your Books Cookbook Club

Eat Your Books is the definitive community for cookbook lovers. Their website offers a place to keep track of your own collection, recipe indexes (I love finding recipes based on my refrigerator contents), latest cookbook news, and reviews of thousands of books. The group is moderated by Jenny Hartin, and typically offers a main selection, alternate, online, throwback, and baking options—plenty to keep you busy each month. Most community interaction takes place on their Facebook group, including voting for future selections. Some member photos are reposted on their Instagram page. Selections have been a good mix of new, beloved classics, and also offer options for those that prefer to find recipes online.
