Well Fed — Now on Kindle
Before we jump into the good news, admit it: You are totally jealous of my mad Photoshop skillz. I mean, look at that totally
awesome low-rent graphic up there. You guys, it might be time for me to suck it up and actually learn how to use Photoshop properly. A class, a book, a tutor… something. I am so bad at it. So. Bad. sigh…
But on to the good news!
Well Fed is now available on the Kindle. Get it right here!
Amazon totally came through for us. Their Kindle division got in touch with us a few months ago and offered to do a Kindle conversion for us for free because they wanted to get “good cookbooks onto the Kindle.” Dave is a Kindle devotee, and I’m a 100% print books girl, and we both think they did a bang-up job of translating Well Fed into the digital realm.
Cool Stuff About the Kindle Version
1. There’s a little bit of graphic design.
The team at Amazon did a great job of retaining some of the look-and-feel of the print version, without making it annoying. On the Kindle Fire version, the photos and graphics are in color — and in the traditional Kindle version, you get black and white photos, with nice font variations and spot graphics.
2. Everything is linked.
As you’d expect, the Table of Contents and Index both link to all the recipes, so it’s easy to jump around. And where the individual recipes “Tastes Great With…” there are handy links to those recipes, too.
3. Get the PDF for $1.
Just like the print version, the Kindle version includes a special code so you can download the PDF version for $1… just in case you want to go old school and print a few pages — or put it on your iPhone so it’s always with you at the grocery store.
Dear Kindle friends, thank you for your patience while we got the Kindle version ready for you. We really hope you like it! Feel free to share your thoughts in the comments below so when Well Fed, Volume 2 comes out in 2013, we know what you like.
