That is definitely a nasty rule...not one I would care to tolerate. I wonder if it would work with Shrek and his guitars...

When I got married, I think I had 25. And then we started going to farm auctions...and I couldn't resist those $1 boxes of cookbooks.

Smart move to ditch the wife and keep the cookbooks.

I have around 100 cookery books and around the same number of cookery magazines. I used to buy them in the days before I had easy access to the internet. I don't any anymore, because receipes and suggestsions for everything are available for free on the internet these days.

My problem is, I like to read cookbooks. I do, however, scan recipes from magazines (been working on getting rid of the magazine collection I have--it is a slow process). And, I've found duplicate cookbooks in my collection, so am looking for new homes for those, eventually. So much to do, so little time.

Interesting Post.

I honestly have lost count since the last International Book Fair held at the end of May through 3rd June 2012 in Madrid Capital ... and then, what we had transported over to Puglia and / or bought there.

Plus, the gastronomic and wine themed magazines the gals and I subscribe to.

Have nice Tuesday,
Ciao. Margi.

I have too many. I keep buying more. It might be a bit dangerous to count them. It is already hard to justify each purchase!

I was at my grandmas and "stole" her joy of cooking and an encyclopedia of cooking. These things are old. I found a newspaper recipe folded up in one of the books from 1964! It's really awesome seeing what pages are dirty and guessing what she cooked. And some of the illustrations are incredibly ant-feminist and amusing
