I may have already posted on this thread....Too many pages to look through.
I have A LOT of cookbooks. But I am a bibliophile anyway. Now that I have been turned on to Kindle by CWS, I have a whole new realm of books to read....and they take up space only on my computer. Still....e books will never replace real books, IMHO.

If you folks want to go absolutely mad, and if you are ever in the Boston area, Radcliff College for Women has a large library of cookbooks written by women only. Some of them go back to the 1500's. Bring white gloves with you. Just in case you ever come across one, you can learn how to slay, skin and cook a Yak. Also other farm animals. Swans on the menu anyone?

The natives in my area are partial to young swans.

I'd love to try swan, but in the U.K. all the mute swans living in open water belong to H.M. the Queen. So, first catch your swan - although you are not beheaded these days

I have just bought another cook book or two, I love grown up jellies so have bought http://www.amazon.co.uk/JELLY-Bompas...3500190&sr=1-1, lovely recipe for glow in the dark (UV light though) G&T jelly, can't wait for Halloween.

Plus a book for espuma/foams, well I've got to justify buying the cream whipper haven't I?

This thread prompted me to go count them. 47. At least 40 of them are from my late grandmother and mother, so they are definitely keepers. I love the little handwritten notes in them and have kept their little bookmarks in place, marking various pages.

Glad I could help. I now have a collection of Kindle cookbooks as well....might need a bigger hard drive.

I have lost count between the two apartments

I truly have lost count between the two apartments, one a rental loft in Madrid, and our Condo in reform in Puglia.

Good post.

Kindest and enjoy your summer,
Ciao, Margi.

I have around 60+ cookbooks. I have mostly hard-cover cookbooks. A few paperbacks I couldn't live without

I now have 998 physical copies of cookbooks...I gave two away recently. No, that's wrong, I picked up two more at the thrift store. Still holding at 1000...and I haven't counted the e-books...
