Cookbooks – Giveaway Roundup, Information and Loving Books

This post will provide you with a full breakdown of all our current promotions as of this date. Links for the articles, recipes and giveaway posts for each title are shared. If you enter our giveaways, please be sure to check your spam or promotion folders for email notifications – or add jenny at eatyourbooks dot com to your filters. Also, you can check the giveaway post itself on the day of, or soon after, for a listing of the winners names. You enter the giveaways – be sure you are not missing the email telling you that you have won! 

I am working on giveaways open to our members outside the U.S. One will be posted this weekend and more after the holidays. If you are interested in buying any books (or any items from our affiliates), using the BUY BOOK button for your purchases helps support our indexing efforts.

Christine’s weekly posts on Fridays keep you up-to-date on all the recipes and happenings here on EYB and Darcie’s daily posts keeps us current with food, cooking and book trends – so be sure to catch those. I know Jane is working on our Best of the Best lists that should be coming in the next week and as always my monthy round up is right around the corner! Our home page provides links to our forums, categories of posts, author and cooking school events and so much more. 

I am also working on building an Instagram following for us. More will be coming on that later. Our other social channels can be found on Facebook, Twitter and Pinterest. Following us on those outlets is not only appreciated, but will ensure that you don’t miss out on book news, giveaways, recipes and more. Occasionally, a few giveaways will be shared on the Facebook page as we did with Monet’s Palate. Sharing the information on this post, as well as any post, is appreciated. We want to continue to grow our cookbook loving community.

This is a peek at one of my shelves with a new vintage LeCreuset my husband doesn’t know that he bought for my birthday. It’s always fun to peek at other’s shelves and the fun part of Eat Your Books is that we can do that by looking at our virtual bookshelves. My profile can be viewed at the link provided and I would love to have a look at your shelves as well. Feel free to leave your profile link in the comments.

    I have Naomi Daguid/Jeffrey Alford's Hot Sour Sweet. Just had the Persia book from the library. It made me want to jump on an airplane and recreate her travels.

Seen anything interesting? Let us know & we'll share it!
