And, in 2013, the per capita monthly income in India was 5729 rupees (approximately $86.00 US)

But, regular readers will know where I’m going with this if they read my post “What’s in a Number“, posted on 6/21/2016.  At that time, the special number was 5328, however,  in my house, “5729” is the current number of cookbooks in “the collection”. And, as Ripley used to say “believe it or not“, I still have a few empty shelves to fill! Full steam ahead!

Supposedly, the "KOBO" electronic device can hold up to 30,000 e-books! (Photo Credit: www.twistthewayiseethings.com)

My EatYourBooks cookbook collection

About vintagecookbookery

Cookbook lover and collector with a burgeoning collection of cookbooks. Reading and researching food trends, history of cooking techniques and technological advances in cooking, what we eat and why and cookbooks as reflectors of cultures is a fascination for me. As of November 7th, 2013, I hold the current Guinness World Record title for the largest collection of cookbooks: 2,970 at the official count on July 14th, 2013 (applaud now, thank you very much!) The current (unofficial) number is now 6,500. What next? More shelves?

    Off to a gig but really enjoy the collection.
    Just thought I’d let you know.

    6,000 is around the corner. Congratulations!!!!!!! I’ve been “out there” for years. Some people just have to judge no matter how insignificant the argument. You are not hurting anyone even if you were collecting just to collect (unless the books fall on someone then…I might see their point )

  3. Some have accused me of collecting for the sake of collecting, however, that’s not the case. I really love reading cookbooks and using them. People don’t seem to think it strange when someone collects first editions of fiction, but for some reason, a few people think that collecting cookbooks is “out there”!

  4. I’m extremely inspired along with your writing talents and also with the layout
    in your blog. Is that this a paid subject or did you modify it your self?

    Either way keep up the nice quality writing, it’s rare to peer a great weblog like this one nowadays..

  5. It?s hard to find experienced people in this
    particular subject, but you sound like you know what you?re talking about!

    And my family thought I have too many cookbooks. LOL…Enjoy your collection. I certainly enjoy mine.
