I love the idea of a forum just on cookbooks. I enjoy collecting them and talking about them, (sometimes think I am obsessed with the idea of having more).
I usually find mine at thrift stores, garage sales and occasionally in bargain bins at book stores. I also visit my local library on a regular basis and check out a few cookbooks at a time.
My favourites are the "oldies", pre-70's, church cookbooks, Better Homes and Gardens, Canadian Living and specialty cookbooks, (pasta, ground beef etc.), just to name a few.
The cookbooks that grab my attention most, have more than just recipes but stories about the author and recipes as well. I am presently reading Kitchen Confidential by Anthony Bourdain and am 1/2 way through it. It's not necessarily a cookbook but about the cooking industry. I think my next venture will be Martha Stewart-Just Desserts.
Hmmm, I don't think I have a hard time talking about cookbooks...lol! Do you?
