The Hopeful Cook at Once Upon a Thyme Bookshop

The Hopeful Cook: Cookbooks of September

Check out these great books coming this month!

Every change is season brings a plethora of new cookbooks. This fall is no exception. I love seeing the new topics and recipes that are on the way. Nearly all lists that I see online have one big problem. They link the book directly to Amazon. Being a small cookbook shop, it makes me absolutely crazy. If you’re reading this and you want to buy one of these cookbooks, let me know! If you aren’t local, find an independent bookstore close by and ask them to order it for you. Shopping small and local is important to the business owners in your town. Small businesses are what make our cities special. Anyway, I will get off my soap box now ;-). Below is an amazing list of books coming out in September. Some have already hit shelves but the majority of them are spread out throughout the month. Keep in mind that we are able to pre-order and can ship directly to your house! We at Once Upon a Thyme Bookshop, are working on our e-commerce options so you can do all of your cookbook shopping on our website. Please bare with me on this as I’m not the most tech savvy, and as a one-woman show, I’m a little behind. I am working on that!
