Articles About Cook Books:

"Cookbooks by Janet Jarvits, Bookseller.
I found out where old cookbooks go when they die: to this cookbook heaven, the only open store in the country
dedicated to used/out-of-print cookbooks."

"People collect cookbooks for various reasons. Some buy them as investments. Others simply want to try new recipes. For some, cookbooks provide good bedside reading. And there are those who acquire cookbooks for their historical and sociological value. Nostalgia is a big factor. Open an old cookbook and the past comes rushing back."
Janet Jarvits, Los Angeles Times. December 15, 1994

"...when trying to come up with an idea for a business, owner Janet Jarvits combined her love of books and cooking. To date, her store is the only one of its kind in the country, and if you're impressed with the cookbook selections at some of the larger bookstore chains, wait until you see the selection here."
