How to organize our cookbook collection? [moved from General Topics board]

nycjadie | Sep 22, 200607:52 PM     17

My wife works in the cookbook industry. We have hundreds of cookbooks. Actually, a few thousand. An entire wall of cookbooks now encompasses our living room in the city. Our collection at the country house is growing. The collection keeps growing even though my wife is choosy about what is admitted into our shelves.

Well, now we can't find anything. It's VERY disorganized. I need some help. I haven't found anything helpful online.

I would love suggestions on how to organize the cookbooks.

I've been a frequent lurker and reader for several years, but this is my first post.
