I am currently finishing renovating my butler's pantry and have 2 book shelves ready to put in. I can't wait because right now, my cookbooks are scattered everywhere!

I used to but decided some time ago that the space was more valuable for "real" kitchen items. The cookbooks now sit in the bookshelf on the other side of the wall in the lounge room. Only a step or more to get and much better placed.

Nope. Just stacks of cookbooks everywhere. They're like birds. I'll put them all back in the den, but they always migrate back to the kitchen

my old house had bookshelves for storage and cookbooks. My new house has a much more open kitchen with no open shelves, but the den is right next to it and has the wall of cookbooks etc I like to go there for "research" to get my ideas together then into the kitchen to do the work. Books get less mucked up that way too!

I have two pretty large shelves in the kitchen dedicated mostly to cookbooks. I may need to find a new home for the gardening books soon
