You are here

Show me your cookbooks..........

I'm curious what your cookbook collection looks like, even if it's only one or two, how you arrange them, how you store them.  Take a picture and post it here. 

I have a relatively long kitchen and I've been putting them within reach, but away from where I cook, on the counter.  I usually keep authors together but there's no rhyme or reason to how they are arranged, other than the taller/fatter books are to the left.

Ohhh, that's nothing compared to a lot of people!

Yep, AC, I've got just a few more.  LOL

Pic from OP. From June (after my birthday)

My collection has grown a little since the above pic was taken.  I'm finally out of space on the counter and need a shelf.  I know it looks obsessive, but remember some of you were in diapers when I started collecting cookbooks.  That said, I've updated my collection the past couple of years with Amazon.com gift certifricates I got for my birthday and xmas.  Usually I get CDs, books and a cookbook or two, but this year got all cookbooks.  So I'm set until the next birthday certificate comes.  :)

Today's pic.

Here's my collection.  Definitely not all vegan ones, but I still like my non-vegan ones.

I now have a pretty nice place for my cookbooks-cabinet right by the kitchen with vegan books on top, more books inside, and I finally have a good place for spices!

nice!  Currently my books are in the dining room, which is not near the kitchen really.  In our new house I have already earmarked a shelf in the kitchen which will be perfect for my cookbooks.

Very nice AC.  I'm so jealous.  I'm having a spice issue and I still haven't addressed the cookbook situation on the kitchen counter.

I thought your cookbooks worked well on that counter!?

They do great, but now there are too many of them and there's no room.  I should take an updated pic.

Fun idea! Here are mine. Just on a bookcase but soon to be moved to a new bookcase.

Not all are exclusively vegan, but I treasure some of those non-vegan books for their vegan-y potential!

My cookbooks are everywhere. My favorites are on the counter by the stove because I use them often. The big, thick cookbooks are on a book shelf in the living room. And the best part is I have two more on the way! My absolute favorite at the moment is Vegan Comfort Food because I have been able to make vegan dishes that my kids eat, and love, and don't realize are vegan! :-)

Several weeks of posts were wiped out during a recent crash of the website, unfortunately during a time you were just starting to post.
