Just a heads up to all the cookbook lovers here....Chowhound currently has a thread encouraging folks to post photos of their shelves/bookcases etc.
The original poster is also looking for feedback on their own collection. If you're interested in joining in the fun, here's the link to that thread:

Ah, this is one of the pleasures of EYB!

Have now responded to Breadcrumbs' kind prodding, and posted pics of my kitchen cookbook shelves.
Off to put together a Caesar salad club sandwich on ciabatta bread from Barefoot Contessa at Home!
