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 :)

....when it takes you longer to decide on a recipe than it does to bake the bread!

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!

"Too many" bread books?????

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.

My DH finally noticed all the empty boxes from Amazon in the recycle bin, LOL.  I have been out of control lately.

Yeah, I notice that every time I try to quell an addiction, a new one pops up . . . cook books . . . fat quarters . . . all those things that I can't live without.
