The last time I counted my cookbooks, probably a couple of years ago, I had somewhere around 200-210. Today I discovered a website called LibraryThing which lets you catalog your books. I painstakingly entered every cookbook I own into my personal database and finished a little while ago. The magic number is 308 315. WOW. That's a lot. I still haven't entered the small, pamphlet like books because I consider them more like magazines but I will input them at some point. This should bring the number up to 350 or so. That's scary. Like, I could run a private cookbook library scary.
Now you can have a peak into my cooking library through the new widget on the side bar! You can see every cookbook I own, just click on the LibraryThing widget. I wonder what my cookbooks say about me.
I love to cook but hate washing up. I own over 300 cookbooks and counting. I am a sucker for pretty cookbooks and don't generally like cookbooks without pictures. I love history and food history and I am very interested in period, especially medieval, cookery as well as modern.
I have recently taken up sewing and now I'm a fabric stashaholic and a pattern junkie. Just like my cookbooks, I own over 300 patterns before counting pattern magazines. As you can see, I have a bit of an addictive personality. Thankfully, I only seem to be addicted to good stuff.....and shoes (but that's another story!)
I own three bikes, three helmets, two pairs of cycling shoes and 5 pairs of real running shoes that look exactly the same, 4 still in their boxes because they have been discontinued and I bought all the stock left in a specific store. Yeah, I'm crazy.
