My screen name is CWS4322, I have a ton of books--cookbooks and dictionaries. This I know because I "humped" boxes of books from the farmhouse to the city house today and am looking forward to a long soak in a tub filled with bubble bath and a nice glass of red....

Looks like I and DH together have a bout 20 cookbooks. I use the internet a lot and, of course, DC.

We have far too many SF books, but I don't want to get rid of any of those.

Joy of Cooking, but don't get the 1997 edition. It's a good read, has recipes that work and it's an amazing reference book.

My ex-wife had a nasty little rule regarding cookbooks: buy one, toss one.

I'll never admit her rule was a good one (hellooooo stubborn male pride), but I must say, my collection is in better shape than it was before the marriage. :-)
