What’s your number?

posted in: Cooking | 2

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.

What’s your number?

    I haven’t counted lately, but the number grows every month! And I see a lot of books in your sidebar which I’d love to have! I have learned to ignore my husband’s eyerolling when I get a new book…
