 h1. Dear readers,
 Matthew Amster-Burton grew up in a household with thousands of cookbooks — his mother Judy's collection — so maybe it's no surprise that these days Matthew loves reading books about food and cooking almost as much as Judy Amster does. 

 But this week in his Unexplained Bacon column, Matthew argues that eventually he'll be reading those books in digital form — and so will you.

 We at Culinate love books and the experience of reading books, but we also see tremendous potential in digital recipes (witness the [/app/htce "How to Cook Everything app"] we recently developed for iPhones and iPods). Lucky us: For now anyway, we can have both.

 Over the next decade or so, we'll see many attempts at moving the content of what have traditionally been cookbooks onto other devices — iPads, Kindles, or tablets that haven't been invented yet. With the addition of audio and video, plus DIY photo uploads and social media links, these new creations aren't the cookbooks of your mother's generation. 

 But I predict they'll have legions of fans — like Matthew.

 What about you? Head over to Matthew's post and weigh in on the future of digital recipes, cookbooks, and food books.
