The Cook Book... Problem...

Here is, from memory, a snippet of the conversation Paul and I just had:

Me (admiring the bookshelf that I built as I place my craft/sewing/cookbooks in it): "I think they'll all fit!"
Paul: "They better." (studying the size of the bookcase) "I mean, how many square feet is that thing."
Me: "Nine!"
Paul: "It's only nine?"

So yes. It appears that I only have nine square feet of cookbooks and crafting books when they're neatly put away. Hopefully. Because I don't think Paul would really be a fan of a second cook book bookcase. That might indicate a cookbook addiction of some sort. He might try to put me in some sort of a twelve step cookbook program... and really, I don't want to be cured of my cookbooks...


  1. I've got a goodwill addiction. But I don't think Josh is going to cure me of that one. I'm also obsessed with baby dresses and I don't even have a baby!

  2. I'm a book lover from my childhood. The public librarians all loved me, I read 10-12 books a week as a little kid. So when I tell you about my library, you can show your hubby it could be a LOT worse than a single book case.

    Fortunately for me, my hubby loves books too and doesn't mind the furniture we don't have because of the books....

    85 linear feet of 7 foot tall book-cases filled to over-flowing with something like 6,000 books, and I don't count romance novels.

    We live in a library.

    I figure when compared to MY book collection, your hubby might be more than OK with two book cases.


I love comments and I read every single comment that comes in (and I try to respond when the little ones aren't distracting me to the point that it's impossible!). Please show kindness to each other and our family in the comment box. After all, we're all real people on the other side of the screen!
