What were your last three cookbook purchases...Part 2 [old]

Hello all, my name is buttertart m. and I'm a cookbook addict. And I'm proud and happy to be one since this addiction has added immeasurably to my life.

We've had a mighty good discussion of this topic (thanks, wekick, excellent topic, hope you don't mind me starting the new thread?) which hit almost 800 posts and is getting to be slow to load because of it. Here's a link to it:

My most recent finds were last Saturday at the Strand Bookstore in Manhattan which always had a very good cookbook section and now has a crazy good one. It had expanded a lot since the last time I was in the store. Anybody here who comes to NYC must visit this store if you are of a mind to be put in harm's way.

The books were the Time-Life "The Good Cook" series volumes on candy and cookies - I saw the bread one and should have gotten it too. They are in tiptop condition and are full of very good recipes, photos, and explanations of technique. This is a rebuy for me because I received the whole set as a gift from my mom and foolishly left it behind when we moved crosscountry years ago. Silly me.

So, what are you buying, and from where?
