KE, took MANY Years of lending favorite books and NOT getting them back before I started a small notebook last year - now I write in it every time I lend someone a book or when I borrow one from someone... and there are MANY I will never lend! I don't have enough in my cookbook collection yet, only 64 books so far... and I did cull my cookbooks a few months ago... had outgrown a few...

Culling cookbooks - that must have been hard to do even if you outgrew them - I could get rid of some of mine though I think.................I think.

I have a couple of those too Michael - I'd have to do it REALLY fast before I thought about it though. I stand at around 300 and am running out of room. I'm still a "baby" to the great collectors of the world but I'm still running out of room!

Well my mom has quite the collection - when she still had her house she had over 3000 and now she has about 500 left... I did get a few of those and I passed them on... I also did get gret books from some good friends and have kept them. I understand how hard it is to part with cookbooks, it's easier to give them to family and friends... that way they know what we liked about the books.

Decluttering is really hard to do, especially when it's time to do it with our books...

We need to add on folks - our home needs a few more rooms and kitchens and libraries filled with cookbooks. Glad you made it!!!!!!!

...as long as you make sure some good cookbooks are strewn about in each and every room, ready to be grabbed for inspiration at any moment!
