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.

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.
