You might have too many bread books when...

Your book end breaks. Yes, this just happened.

When you really start considering Amazon's "one click" ordering.

Add yours :)

Your dog chews the cover....because he could find where you last left it from the bread smells on it!  I have two new books now with the top of the cover a bit chewed away!

I recently attended an estate sale at the home of a local professor who cooked and baked for fun. He had in excess of a thousand cookbooks. Filled three walls of a large room--to the ceiling.

Didn't look like too many to me!

P.S. I heard that Amazon made three deliveries to the funeral home too.;^)

Oh, man, that sounds like my grandmother's house - except hers were Reader's Digest Condensed books and old Western novels.

when you are looking up gluten and breads' reputation on a nutrition book. I almost feel insulted sometimes when this book for example talks about the myths and realities around gluten. I was reading this Nutrition: Concepts and Controversies when i realised that i was going into the conversation about gluten in a defensive stance.
