Sometimes I think I love cookbooks more than the actual act of cooking.
If you write a cookbook without pictures, then forget about it. I need to see artificial food styling before I can even consider cooking the recipe. I used to have about 50 pounds of cookbooks in my house but over time, I've donated several of the ones I don't use. Like... have I cooked anything out of this? NO...okay, it hits the donation pile.
Right now I'm really into utilizing the Madison Public Library -- you know it was recently one of 10 libraries honored by the White House, right?
Well, here's how I hack the public library system. It's actually not a hack at all but because I have so few friends who utilize our libraries, it might seem like one. First thing, though, you will need your library card.
1. Go to NYT Best Seller list and search for cookbooks
2. Go to the Madison Public Library website, sign in
3. Search for the book in LINKcat
4. Place a hold on the book. (Or as I like to do, post several holds on several books.)
5. Wait for a notification that your book is ready to be picked up!
I love, love, love libraries. If you want, you can also check out books electronically but there is always something special about physically going to a library and picking up a book. I come from a generation of readers who like to feel the pages.
I also do this for new CDs coming out (I have a hold on Beyonce's Lemonade) or audio books on self help, bestsellers or language programs. I know I could go out and buy everything I wanted, but I actually enjoy waiting and getting the call that my materials are ready for pickup.
When was the last time you went to the library? Do you have any library pointers? I would love to hear how the library is part of your life! I just loved going to the library as a kid and can't imagine it not being a part of our lives today.
