The post on "you know you're a chowhound when" got me to wondering how many cookbooks chowhounds own. I own 123. I love my cookbooks.
One of my greatest pleasures is searching for vintage cookbooks...I drive all over looking for them. One of my favorite bookstores is in Jackson, CA. I spend hours looking at cookbooks...and I always buy a few.
I don't buy many of the Food Network stars cookbooks..but I do have two of Alton Browns and one of Ina Garten...and of course, Tony Bourdain's (I know...he's on the Travel Channel now).
