50 Cookbooks 50!

Recommended Posts

I've stared to winnow our collection by setting aside 50 books we haven't opened in a long while, or ones that are the least useful now and probably forever. Before donating them to our public library system or local community college's culinary program, I thought I'd see if any eG'ers would be interested in any (or all) of them. All I'd ask is that you pay the shipping cost (media mail rate to the U.S.) plus add a little something for us -- whatever you think is fair. Of course I'd prefer multiple books per address, so go for it! To avoid lots of trips to the P.O. (that's Post Office, not Parole Officer), I'll wait a week or two in order to hear from everyone who's interested. If you are, or if you have any questions, please reply via private message.

 

Here's a list, alphabetized by title. If the inspiration strikes, I'll add some more.

Bumping this as a reminder. One more week, at the most, and they'll be donated locally.

That's a great collection, Alex, and a great offering. I hope someone avails themselves of it. I'm interested, but not terribly surprised, at the overlap in our collections. :)

Great collection but I have given so many of mine away as I have moved around. Thank you for your generosity. I could be tempted - will think on it.

Thank you. It is not beyond the realm of possibility that there'll be another winnowing in the near future.

 

I love Vermont. Several decades ago, back before I-93 was completed, I came this close > < to moving to St Johnsbury.

@Alex I hope so.  Vermont is a beautiful place.  I feel very lucky to be a native of this state.
