Oh, my, mdavids, what a question! Personally, I have about 800 cookbooks, which represent everything from German, Danish, Italian, Chinese, you get the idea.
The members here at DC are a diverse group and you will discover that many of us suffer from cookbookaholicism. So far, thankfully, to my knowledge there's no 12-step program to cure it.
Many of the books in my collection are books on technique or a specific kind of cooking. Making my own pasta or bread baking, for example.
I know I haven't answered your question fully, but you'll get plenty of superb answers. And they'll come in great numbers very quickly. Enjoy!
