Look I what I found this morning when I sat down with my coffee, clicked onto tastespotting.com as I do every morning and got ready to peruse yummy treats from fellow foodies all over the world:
Why? WHY? WHY????? Lawyer M says it was probably a piracy thing, internet sharing of copyrighted materials, blah blah blah. Whatever. I can think of two cookbooks that I would never have bought - or even heard of - if it weren't for the delicious reviews I found on tastespotting. Doesn't that make up for the occasional posting of a photo? And sure, I can understand if people were posting tons of recipes right out of a book, but the vast majority of posts were either home cooks dabbling with their OWN recipes or people who made tweaks to book recipes and then posted the results.
Now I have to go and try to find all my favorite food bloggers on my own.
I am so sad.
