Lots and lots of cookbooks

And in the meantime, I'm pressing ahead with the cull for the Great Book Sale on Sept 29/30. Just to keep everyone's attention (and encourage more people to come buy books), here's an update: the cookbooks have been culled, and I've pulled out four full boxes of them for the sale.

Now mind, this largely doesn't contain SCA period cookbooks -- for this pass, I'm allowing myself to keep most of them, and tpau has long-established dibs on all the duplicates. But it's still a ton of varied books of good quality. The list can be found in LibraryThing, mostly under the tags cookery, cookbooks, cooking, brewing and recipes. (Plus a bunch that just plain didn't get tagged.) And while it doesn't have much pre-1700 per se, it *does* include a lot from later periods, especially throughout the 19th and 20th centuries, and lots of ethnic cookbooks ranging from Russian to Icelandic.

So if it isn't already, put the sale on your calendar. There's an awful lot of great stuff to dig through -- over 1000 books so far, and I haven't yet started the science fiction...

    The more I think about it, the more puzzled I am by the vandalism of the Rolls. First, there's the fact that there is no longer a comprehensive…
