Christmas book wish list

About this time for the last 4 or 5 years my Internet friends and I have had a "Christmas Book Wish list.

This one is a pure whim, I have read good reports about it.

Asian Sauces & Marinades
By Wendy sweetsir.

I await with bated breath for your lists ( that way as always, I end up adding to mine as my friends will tell you)

I'd like to add to my "Beautiful" collection....
also, an early edition of "Joy".

My husband hates my books, so I doubt I'll be getting any, unless friends do so. (well, hate is a strong word. he thinks I'm obsessive about them.)

so???

My list includes the new edition of Joy and I like Ina Gartens new book. I looked through it at the bookstore. Maybe Santa looks at Discuss Cooking.

Mudbug and KathyJ, do I ever understand.

You know you have too many cookbooks when you haven't read most and can't find the one you want.

Guilty as charged.

And would love a few days, or a couple of hours a day, just to go through the ones I have.
