Mine is cookbooks. Im serious. I love them. I get a new one and I sit down to read it like a novel. I add post-its to all the recipes I am going to "immediately" try. I change their configuration on the shelves every few months. I categorize them by cuisine, type of food, then by how often I use them.
Every time I buy a new one, I seriously tell myself "This is the last one. Once I have this one, I will need no others". I honestly believe this at the time I am saying it.
I think its a sickness.
Now I constantly assure Bo that I have friends with many more cookbooks than I have - and its true. I know people with 300-500 books. His and mine together total at about 80.
I'm working hard to rectify this number.
Of course if I had kept every cookbook I had ever purchased I'm sure the number would teeter toward 200.
You are currently looking at the books I reach for the most these days. I am considering a new ice cream book for this section
It will be the last cookbook I ever need!
