number of cookbooks in your library

raj1 | Apr 25, 200210:35 AM     20

On earlier thread about "cookbook ideas", a number of you mentioned that you were avid cookbook collectors and addicts. What a relief! I thought I was the only one. Is there a support group for this?

My question is, how many cookbooks do you have? What are your favorite sources?

A couple of years ago I counted up to 40 and I thought that was a lot. Since then my collection has grown exponentially with the discovery of a number of discount and bargain cookbook catalogs and websites. Used bookstores are also my favorite haunts and I've found a few gems along the way such as one of my faves "The Can-opener Cookbook" (ca 1965), a collection of recipes that combine different canned goods into delicious meals. What a hoot!

What are some of your "finds" and off-beat favorites?
