I can't keep up either. A few years ago, I wanted them ALL. Now there's one coming out every other day, and I really need to consider if it's going to add something new to what I already have (like Artisan Vegan Cheese). Or sometimes I get excited about one because it fits into whatever food phase I'm in (right now I want fresh, healthy, and SIMPLE- no long ingredient lists).

Vegan Eats World looks really adorable though; definitely interested in that.

I've been doing well! Haven't bought any in months (this means I'll probably end up impulse shopping next week or something).

You sound exactly like me, and I'm even in the same phase right now. I think that's why I got the Low Cal Comfort Food and the Grilling book (what's easier than a whole chapter of marinades??)

I realized the real problem I have is storage space, so I can buy as many kindle cookbooks as I want. ;)

I also got Paprika for my iPad and am working on loading in my favorite recipes, so I can eventually store the cookbooks I only use for 1 or 2 recipes.

How do you like cookbooks on your kindles? I can't imagine using my kindle as a cookbook. I don't know why. It must be difficult to navigate?

I actually use an iPad with the kindle app, and it is just fine. Not difficult to navigate at all. It does take a little getting used to, but it is super nice to be able to search for something rather than flip a bunch of pages. I do put my iPad in a ziploc bag in the kitchen to keep it clean. I think I'm going to be transferring most of the recipes I use to paprika, though, as that makes it a lot easier to make notes and edit recipes as I go. The recipes I come back to over and over do tend to evolve over time.
