    Default husband thinks i am crazy...


    i love to read and collect cook books. does that make me crazy? i love to cook and to bake so i am not just reading and wishing, i have learned alot over the years. i have 400+ free e-cookbooks from amazon. and about 150+ paper cookbooks. i even had it put into my mom's will that i get her stash when she dies. that was the point that he said i needed to be committed .

    am i the only one that has an obsession like this?

    (i realize this wasnt the FAQ that was planned when the forum was created but i thought it fit )

    I also love to read cookbooks, so does DH. I keep wondering when my Amazon Reader will fill up with all the free e-cookbooks I have as well (hoping for a Kindle for Christmas, so I can browse while watching TV). Tell him you are not crazy

    You are not crazy, you sound normal to me. Lots of people love to read and collect cookbooks. I am always looking for recipes. Thanks; Virginia

    Sounds perfectly normal to me. I have hundreds of cookbooks--four large bookshelves full. I sold three boxes full last year to make room for this years. LOL

    I -love- cookbooks. Especially old ones. I keep ALL my cookbooks. Even the ones I don't use that much. I love to read through them...it's a great way to get new ideas.
    Nope, you're not crazy...at all. Sound pretty normal to me.

    Sounds perfectly normal to me. I've never met a cookbook I didn't like.

    My husband knows I'm crazy. He buckled me in and drove me most of the way himself. :0)
    As for cook books though, I have my Mom's and my Gramaws. And also, three recipe boxes with gramaws old goodies hand written. One is a recipe her grandfather wrote for swamp gravy. No, I only think your crazy if you answer yourself. And I occasionally do...

    Even if he does try to commit you, at least the other inmates will eat well!! There is nothing wrong with the love of cooking/baking. Its a stress reliever, something to bond over and just overall fun...at least the flour wars are. lol

    I'm totally obsessed with cookbooks - I read them like novels. I was up to over 200 when my husband finally put his foot down and said that if a new cookbook comes in the door, and equal width have to go out (so they stay within their assigned shelves!). I too have about 400 on my Kindle... but my Kindle is full so I had to stop downloading them, LOL.

    I had filled my kindle with cookbooks too, so I put kindle for pc on my laptop and the only books I have there are my cookbooks. the space is only limited by the size of my hard drive...and it isn't tiny.

    Aww crap, this is what qualifies one as crazy??? I'm nuttier than an outhouse bat then!

    When I'm working on something, particularly if I'm writing code (html, css, MySQL strings, etc), I will literally talk out loud through each step.... it sounds something like this...

    click on that string, highlight it, copy it, hit control F, find that string, NO- not that one fool, the next one, yah that's it, hit paste, save it, test it, crap it didn't work, what did you forget, I didn't forget anything, maybe I stuck in the wrong place, delete that, scroll up and see if you can shove above that last directive... okay.. now.. click on that string.. highlight it, copy it...

    and ye gads, I know I do this because it helps me catch any mistakes I might make that would wipe out the entire site at once. I don't have "tech guys" that take care of things for me, and I didn't go to school for this...so creating and running my sites has been quite a learning curve!

    Didn't Einstein once say that talking to oneself was a sign of genius? *reaching*
