As promised to a few members here is a cookbook shelfie thread to show off you cookbook collections
I have 2 shelves filled with books, the first is hard to get to (hence the awful photographs) and contains 50 cookbooks (first 2 photos), the second shelf (last 3 photos) contains another 44 books (2 of those on the shelf are not vegan). I also have another 7 cookbooks which are hanging round the house being used or looked at (Around the World Vegan Style, Vegan Boulangerie, Complete Guide to Vegan Cookery, Love Bites, Vegan Diner, Vegan Casseroles and World Vegan Feast):

Wow! I want those cook books!
I thought I had a lot but I reckon I can now can stop feeling guilty and justify more cookbook purchases!

Your pictures give me an idea how big or small some books are since I mostly find them online.

These are my vegan cookbooks (but I also have some in ebook form...). I bought a lot of them used from Abebooks so they're not so pretty:

And there are my veg/omni cookbooks for veganizing:

A person this week told me she had too many cookbooks. It turned out she owned six. I felt anguished at the quantity I own for a moment...

Oh, this is lovely! I think I have about 20 cookbooks (including a few non-vegan) but there are many more on my wishlist. Any hidden gems in your collections?

The bottom 3 pictures are my favourites. Especially the last picture, other than that there is no order!

Minatomachi I love your shelves. There are lots there I have never seen before. I might have to add to my collection!

American Vegan Kitchen. It's just brilliant!

My favorites are mostly on the left side of the first picture: The Vegan Bible (the French version), The Oh She Glows Cookbook, Veganomicon, Vegan Chocolate, 1000 Vegan Recipes, The Vegan Family Cookbook, Tofu 1-2-3. Among my ebooks, I like Japanese Cooking: Contemporary and Traditional, Quick-Fix Vegan and The Vegan Boulangerie most.

But there are too many I've barely used yet... so others may become favorites.

A few of them are in French so that may be why you haven't seen them. :)

I have a lot of cookbooks, about half of them are vegan. Sadly most of them are packed away because I still don't have a permanent flat. Here in my boyfriends flat I got like 10 cookbooks. Sadly not my favourite ones :(

Ack! "Opera in Cucina" isn't vegan, and neither of us have ever used it. Gift.

For me, this is a lot of cookbooks.

Love the pictures, everyone! Star, you should open a vegan library!

Not yet, but I'll let you know!

Love this idea! My cookbook collection is pitiful in comparison, but I should take a pic later and post it.

Yay for this thread! It's exactly what I need to embarrass myself in to finally organizing the mess in my closet. Replacing the $19.99 sagging bookcases from Target wouldn't hurt, either. In my fantasy, I come back in a month with built-in shelving filled with alphabetized books which are also arranged by author, recipe type, and cuisine. Yes, that will happen.

I'll start with the worst first: The Raw and the Woo. What can I say, I like to juice.

Sorry for the blur. I had to resize from huge.

More later...

Wow, Xoxolatl, that is also a big collection! What is your favourite (or favourites)?

Hmm, it's hard to say because most of them have never been used - which is something I'm trying to work on. In the section above, I reach for the Vegetarian Flavor Bible most often. It isn't a cookbook, rather a listing of every ingredient imaginable with nutritional content, seasonality, best methods of preparation, complimentary flavors, etc.

As far as cookbooks, I really like Clean Start, Clean Food, and Eat Clean Live Well under the pile on the top right. Her recipes are somewhat macro-influenced but Western at the same time. It's a combination that I like a lot, and I love that the recipes in each book are arranged by season.

I really want The Vegetarian Flavor Bible. This read is making me want more cookbooks. Bad, bad thread.

Why, yes, I do own something called "The MILF Diet." Worse, I didn't order it online. I bought it in a real store with a human cashier. Not one of my prouder moments.

It should be clear by now: I will buy anything if it contains vegan recipes.

Barring those out on loan and Kindle books, this is it for the vegan books. If you need a recipe from a long-lost or out-of-print book and you see it in my hoard, let me know and I'll be happy to type it up or send a picture.

I love this thread! It is so interesting to see everyone's shelves and the books they have. And it makes me feel much better about the cookbooks I have. I thought I had too many until seeing some of these photos. Now I don't feel so bad about purchasing a few more.

These pictures made me happy! We've moved and don't have shelves in our new place yet, so mine are in two boxes for the time being. I cook from whatever percolates to the top!

This book had some bad reviews because apparently the author is not vegan and its stock photos and veganised recipes but personally I think it's a nice book, I made 3 recipes - one was a failure (Linzer Cookies), the Stained Glass Cookies were nice, the Chocolate Chip Oatmeal Cookies were outstanding (I made these the day my sister gave birth after 4 days of labour, they were the first thing she or her boyfriend ate in days and they both declared them the best cookies ever)
