I'm a cookbook reader too! I buy cookbooks pretty often and I have a lot of them. I'm just starting on 'Bakewise'...

I have about 5 main cookbooks that I like to refer to and about 100 more that I have but rarely use. My favorite so far is Silver Palate cookbook. Its an older book, but the recipes are great.

We have about a dozen or so, but I only use two of them regularly. Joy of Cooking and How to Cook Everything are my favorites. I like to get two or three recipes from the books and the internet, then add my own touches to a recipe...

I used to buy cook books but now I've just endlessly surfing the net for new and interesting recipes that I actually try on at home. My husband and kids love to eat and they are always excited for my new found recipes :-)

I have about 40 or 50. I cannot pass a bookstore without looking through the clearance bins to see if there is anything interesting. I usually will follow a recipe to the letter the first time, and then make adjustments after that. I tend to follow recipes more for baking than anything else.

Really? I have that cookbook, but I can't say that I've ever made anything from it. What are some of your favorite recipes from the Silver Palate, if you don't mind me asking?

I think I stopped counting cookbooks when I hit 200 :) I refer to books fairly often, but I can't say I usually slavishly follow the recipes. They're written to appeal to a broad range of tastes, so I don't feel bad about altering them to my family's specific needs and tastes.

I needed one desperately for a wood cook stove and found a couple old ones at the flea market and they have been lifesavers.

I love cookbooks. I probably have about 40-50 but use a handful of them religiously. Creating a Stir is my favorite (regional) and I've never tried a recipe in it I didn't like.
My husband has a good assortment of meat cookbooks. For Christmas he got "The River Cottage Meat Book". Haven't tried anything out of it yet but the recipes look very good.
