I LOVE books and reading. I have many on my iBooks and many in paper, too, because there is something classic about an actual book in you hands.
I did a bit of research this morning on a few books I’d like to get. First, I check if they are available on iBooks (because books are usually around 50% cheaper on iBooks than in paper). Second, I ventured to the used book store to search for the books and to see if they would be more affordable than on iBooks.
The first book I wanted to find was Eat to Live by Joel Fuhrman. Unfortunately the used book store did not have a copy (that I could find), so I opted for this one on iBooks. Plus, it was only $7.99.
I’m very interested to read this book and possibly follow the meal plans as what I’ve read is positive and most people did see the changes in their weight/health in 6 weeks.
The second book I was looking for was Engine 2 Diet by Rip Esselstyn. I’ve read about this book many times over the past year and a bit but haven’t actively looked for it. On iBooks it was $11.99 but at the used book store it was only $10.00 … so paper it is!
The third book I was on the hunt for was Skinny Bitch in the Kitch by Rory Freedman and Kim Barnouin. I already have the paper-version of Skinny Bitch but have read that this “Kitch” book if FULL of great recipes. I found it at the used book store for only $8.00 instead of the $15.99 on iBooks. So again – paper it is!
One of the first things I do when I get a new cookbook is to go through and flag the recipes that I want to try.
The amount of flags that are currently sticking out of Skinny Bitch in the Kitch is quite impressive! I would estimate maybe 75% of the recipes have now been flagged! Can’t wait to give it a try!
