A world without cookbooks is like a day without sunshine!

Yes ... I use cookbooks ... and with each one I add so many new & wonderful recipes to my culinary stash.

I have maybe 15 tops? Most of the recipes are very similar and I almost never cook from them but god do I love reading them :D Its so fun.
I doubt I could read a cookbook without pictures though, I quite enjoy the food porn xD

I have 50 or 60 or so and always refer back to them; also use the web when searching for ideas. Also doing a compilation of family recipes that I may (or may not) publish some day. It's a work in progress that needs a lot more progress.

I hate it when my favorites go out of publishing (like the 1972 Joy of Cooking paperback) at least I inherited my mother-in-law's........

Yes, I use them. I mostly do when trying out a new recipe.

I buy them all the time. There are some recipes that I need more illustrations for - in those cases, I get cook books. Also, they are able to list other things more than recipes - they can give nutritional information.

I just started to compile a bibliography of my cookbooks. I am at 67... and counting. I tend to look through them, read them, then create menus/meals. Sometimes I follow a recipe, more so with baking. I have one from 1915, others from the 20's, through current time. I have a collection of those "church' cookbooks, compiled by all sorts of groups, some quite old.
