Mobile version of Eat Your Books


We are delighted to announce our new mobile phone version. It's so simple to use - next time you access Eat Your Books on your phone, the mobile version will automatically load in a readable format.

The mobile version makes it easier to access your book and recipe search results when you're out and about. We will continue to enhance this version, and welcome feedback from you as you try it out.

To make it as simple as possible some features have been left out, but you can browse to the full EYB if you need to access those.




Eat Your Books Mobile



Look up Your Books
Next time you're standing in the bookstore trying to decide what your next cookbook purchase is going to be - look it up in the EYB Library to see if it's indexed and what other EYB members think of it.

Some of us will also find it useful as a reminder to check if we already own the book!







 Check Your Recipes

Next time you're standing in the store trying to decide what to make for dinner, look up a recipe in your cookbooks. Enter the meal you'd like to cook, select one and check for other ingredients you'll need to prepare it.

Or just enter lots of ingredients that appeal and see what recipes you have that use them.

You can filter your recipes using your own Bookmarks.








Find New Online Recipes

Filter your recipe search using the online recipe filter and click through to the original source to get the full recipe. Use the 54,000 online recipes in the Library.

Remember that you don't need to be signed in to use this feature.   So if you haven't become a full EYB member yet try searching these recipes. Once you see the great recipes from cookbooks, magazines and the best recipes on the internet - you'll never Google again!




If you would like to reach EYB in just one click, like you do for an app on your phone, then do the following on an iPhone. On Safari click the Share icon to the left of the Bookmarks icon. Click Add to Homescreen. Adjust the name e.g. change it to EYB. 

You can find more information about using the Mobile Version in the How To Help section

    Yes! Thank you so much. Can't tell you how long I've been waiting for this :).

  • hlangezaal  on  6/30/2012 at 8:13 AM

    This is a great help. I was using the eat your books yesterday while at a book sale. This new version will be easier to work on a phone.

    When will it be available? It is not yet in the Apple App Store.

  • oriongirl79  on  6/30/2012 at 9:51 AM

    i'd like the ability to add a book to my library from the mobile site too, please. :)

  • Jane  on  6/30/2012 at 10:28 AM

    It isn't an app. it is a mobile version of the site. As soon as you sign in to EYB on your phone you will see it.

  • adrienneyoung  on  6/30/2012 at 10:44 AM

    I'm so glad to see this! It's a little glitchy today (morning of release), but I'm sure that's something you'll get fixed. And once you do it is going to be SUCH a big help, even in its 1.0 form, to so many of us. THANK YOU, Jane! My shopping cart and I are VERY excited!

    This is a nice option to have when accessing EYB from my ipad. Thanks so much Jane & Fiona.

  • FionaC  on  7/5/2012 at 7:32 AM

    When I try to access the mobile site from my iPad I get a blank page and nothing loads! Anyone else experienced this?

  • Cheri  on  7/6/2012 at 9:56 PM

    Yes, Fiona, I have the same issue. If I go back to the Safari version and reload the mobile version it comes in, but not sure why I would go through all those steps.... Only saw the mobile version the first time I opened EYB.

  • caridio  on  7/7/2012 at 10:51 AM

    This is wonderful! I love being able to do a quick search on EYB from anywhere. Android users can also create a shortcut on their home screen: just bookmark EYB in your browser, go to the home screen, tap Menu button, select Add, select Shortcut, and then select Bookmark. Thanks!

    Adding notes in mobile version would be helpful.

  • jessekl  on  4/9/2013 at 5:58 PM

    It would really great if you had an app too!

  • Jane  on  4/9/2013 at 7:07 PM

    jessekl - an app is planned!

  • ljdickey718  on  12/26/2013 at 9:46 AM

    I'd like to second the request to be able to add books from the mobile version -- much easier to stand at my bookcase with my phone and add books rather than bringing them to the computer!

  • CharmianC  on  11/27/2014 at 10:03 AM

    Adding books from the mobile version would be great for the same reasons lkdickey718 sites. That said, I use this mobile version often when shopping. Do I own this book already or is it just on my very long wish list? This has saved me from duplicate purchases more than once, thus paying for itself many times over. Love EYB.

    Agree with the comments above, please can we have an enhancement to add books from the mobile site, would be so much better, thanks :)
