I know the feeling, I thought we had too many cookbooks (of which number continues to grow in steady pace....), but you are even worse!!
Just kidding, your collection looks wonderful.
I just like looking at our cookbooks during my idle time, just absorbing some general ideas and inspirations (although we seldom apply the exact recipes to our actual cooking...), drooling at beautiful pictures.. many of these books are also more than just collections of recipes, I love reading tidbits about particular food and cultures behind regional/international cuisines.
