I would also encourage using that quality reporting. From my experience, those reports are taken seriously and the issues do get fixed.

Hi, Kim, on the page where you download the book, there's a link to report
book quality issues. If you go to that link, there's a form to fill out to
report the problem with the book and Bookshare staff will follow up. I'd
encourage you to report problems like this that way so that the books can
get fixed. The link is below the book information.

Hi, you guys are making me hungry. I think Christopher Kimball has
written The Cooking Bible and The Dessert Bible. Bookshare has Rose Levy
Beranbaum's Pie and Pastry Bible, but I advise you that if you download
it, there are no ingredients listed for any of the recipes, most likely
due to the ingredients may be in the form of images which didn't
translate to the text. Very frustrating. I like tomes, though I know it
would really be yeoman service to get any of those books written about
into the bookshare collection via submission and proofreading. I'd say
kudos to anybody who tackled such projects. Regards, Kim Friedman.

Hi Charlene and everyone!

Yes, it seems like the books they are choosing in the Top 100 Cookbooks
of
the Last 25 Years categories for November and December, anyway are
mostly
real tomes.  I don't know if I'd have the patience to scan and fix up
the
scan of a 600 or 700 page cookbook.

I didn't find any of these books on Bookshare that are the December
picks
either.  Here's that list in the category of baking.

1. Classic Home Desserts

2. Pie: 300 Tried-and-True Recipes for Delicious Homemade Pie

3. The Cake Book

4. Great Cookies: Secrets to Sensational Sweets

5. In the Sweet Kitchen: The Definitive Baker's Companion

6. Flour: Spectacular Recipes from Boston's Flour Bakery + Café

7. King Arthur Flour Whole Grain Baking: Delicious Recipes Using
Nutritious
Whole Grains

Charlene, since you didn't have time to find the list of the General
cooking books that were selected for November, I'll find those again
too.

1.  Martha Stewart's Cooking School: Lessons and Recipes for the Home
Cook

2.  The Essential New York Times Cookbook: Classic Recipes for a New
Century

3. Real Cooking

4. Gourmet Today

5. Cook with Jamie: My Guide to Making You a Better Cook

6.  Radically Simple: Brilliant Flavors with Breathtaking Ease

7. The New Best Recipe

8.  How to Cook Everything: 2,000 Simple Recipes for Great Food

9. Ad Hoc at Home

So, there are the titles for December and then backtracking to
November.  Sorry I didn't think to include authors.  I was just
interested
in titles so I could search for them on Bookshare.

I think these books are expensive and many of them are huge tomes of 400
or
more pages up to over 1,000 pages, though some are in the 200- or
300-page
range..

I can keep looking as each month roles around if anyone likes.  It's
interesting to see what each months picks are in each category.

I'd be willing to help out with scanning if there are cookbooks people
are
interested in, too. Admittedly, I didn't have the patience to try to
find
the list on that site, but I'd be happy to help out. I've noticed that
some of the cookbooks that recently have come out are available on
bookshare already from the publishers, too. You just have to look for
them, they don't show up in the cookbook category. I wonder how books
to
be submitted by the publishers are selected.

Someone mentioned the whole grain baking book from King Arthur
recently,
and that's one of those big books that would really be nice to get from

the publisher because due to their size, they're not easy to scan and
talk
about time-consuming! (smile!) I have the 200th anniversary King Arthur

baking book and it's in pretty good shape to submit for proofreading
but a
friend is going to type up one page that was a picture of an old
hand-written recipe. That book was a big three-ring binder so it wasn't

hard to work with and it scanned pretty good, too. I just need to work
on
cleaning it up some more.

Me too, Debby. I have. Tot be in the right mood with a big chunk of
time
to spare to work on cookbooks. Rewarding when it's done but tedious
while
you're doing it.

I'm busy baking for Thanksgiving, so haven't had a chance to check
which
ones are in the collection. I will when I get a chance, unless someone

wants to check it out before I get a chance.
