How Many Cookbooks Do You Have?

I have 53, plus a folder sutffed with all those recipes you get from friends, out of the paper, and everywhere else.

I also started a 3-ring binder for recipes from this site.

The book I've used the least is one on nothing but pate that I got as a wedding gift long ago.

I have somewhere around 80 something here, and another 50 or more in storage. Yikes!

I would guess I have in the neighborhood of 30 or so. If you count the internet then I have millions :)

I've never counted, but I'm estimating somewhere in the neighborhood of 40 or so.

I stopped counting.....I have a passion for them. I'm constantly ripping out recipes out of magazines not to mention wearing my poor printer out with printing off the web. I have the printed pages seperated in catagory but just need to haul my butt down and get a big 3 ring binder and dividers.

I stopped counting at 60, and my least used cookbook is the one on salads that is really nothing but what to add to a Honeymoon salad to make it a meal. Booooring!

I always say there's no such thing as having too many books. However, you guys make me feel relieved about the number I have on one topic.
