Digital Versions of Cookbooks?


The Chicago Tribune has a piece up about e-book versions of cookbooks.

Granted, I know I’m a bit of a luddite when it comes to reading, and really prefer paper to digital every time (with the exception of news – I don’t miss newsprint fingers), but come on.

I know there’s a whole big, well-thought out article there, but all I heard was “blahblahblah now you can douse your expensive devices in marinara, melt them next to a hot stove, smudge your peanut butter fingers on them mid-recipe while trying to scroll or turn the page, and get flecks of oregano into all its bits.”

Least practical idea ever. Am I alone here? Would you, like me, never dream of using an e-reader for a cookbook? Or do you think it’s a great idea? Let us know your thoughts in the comments.
