Addicted To Food Books
Well, the subject of a cookbook tally sent me a-counting, and to be honest - I know I have well over 1,000 books on food. I have bookcases in the kitchen, dining room and family room, plus shelving in our garage that is lined with books on food & cooking: vintage and modern, nutrition, diets, health, lo-fat, no-fat, ethnic foods, you name it! A real library on food. I have finally been able to control my hoarding instinct and stopped the insanity (ran out of room). But I must say that after all my extensive reading about food and nutrition, ie. Food Politics by Marion Nestle, and Fast Food Nation, and many other very informative reads, I have become a vegetarian (4 years now). I've considered selling off some of them, but I am attached to each and every one of them in some strange way, and I justify keeping them because I still love to cook lots of different things for company.
