I am hoping someone can help me.

I have an ereader, and I subscribe to about 4 mailing list of books.  I have a few RSS Feeds that I use too.  My computer's hard drive died and I didn't get a chance to save a RSS feed from one of my sites.  I don't remember the web site.  I am hoping if I give clues someone may be able to help me find the site or a good replacement.

The site linked directly to Amazon so I never had to visit them.  They would send out a feed about every 3 days or so.  consisted of about 20 books.  The covers were included.  The first half of the list was Christian or inspirational. The second half was cookbooks.  The some of the cookbooks were gluten free or Paleo(I didn't care about these).  The other half of the cookbooks were wonderful.  They were all free.

The description on the RSS FEED under properties is "Helping You Be a Better Home Economist"  My description was Cookbook - free.  I normally don't change my titles for the RSS Feed.

If someone can help me find this feed or a great ecookbook feed I will be eternally grateful.

As I am addicted to books, paper, hardback or electronic. I will more than likely sign up for whatever rss feed or newsletter you send my way.  :)

Thank you in advance for helping me.

while I can't help with the website (assuming not BookBub), have you tried Feedly to save your RSS feeds?  This is what I use when Google quit their RSS reader. You don't have to save anything on your hard drive and you can access it from your computer or smartphone with the app

Thank you, I am going to check into Freedly before the next hard drive takes a nose drive. I do have a subscription to Bookbub and I really do love them.  In fact, I have about 6 subscriptions and feeds that I follow for books.  I  did find another one that has nothing but cookbooks, it isn't as friendly as the original one but they have a lot of the same types of cookbooks.  After a few days, I have found 2 or 3 that I liked so I can continue my collection.

You can try freereadfeed.com. They list the free books on Amazon daily.  Quite a selection, and you can filter what you're interested in.
