Cookbooks that is. Which are real books but different.
I do a lot of reading on my iPad, most of it, although I do purchase plenty of print books I like being able to take my library with me when I go to work so I can read while on my break or lunch.
I’ve come to terms with being a bit of a book hoarder, but hadn’t really considered my cookbook addiction a problem until the shelf they sat on started to bow.
So now I’m faced with a problem. What to do with the books? I’ve toyed with the idea to cooking every recipe, compiling the ones I love into one document, and passing the book off to the local thrift store.
But then I’d lose the pictures.
And I prefer printed versions when I cook. Okay, part of that is because things tend to splash and I don’t like wrapping my iPad in plastic to bring it into the kitchen. But mostly it’s because I like paper when I’m cooking.
So, yes, I’ll weed through the books because I have some doubles in there (don’t blame me, some of those were gifts), but mostly I’ll think about shoring up the shelves and making them stronger.
After all, we are talking about books here.
Until next time.
