How many cookbooks do you have?

Well southerncooke you've got me beat!! In 2007 we downsized to a patio home and I knew I had to part with some of my collection. I stopped counting at 2000. Although I now have an entire room, floor to ceiling, with enclosed bookcases for my treasured books I miss the ones I parted with. Sold/gave away maybe 150 before the move but continue to collect. I do use the internet to curb my desire of buying another cookbook. Hey, I just love to read and cook! Been collecting for 40 plus years.
