We moved just before Christmas and although I tried to keep my cookbook collection under control, some of the categories did get a bit muddled in transit. On top of that, I have accumulated a number (an embarrassingly extravagant number) of new books that have been piling up messily, not to say dangerously, all over the place.
So I decided to take stock, and this week has been Operation Organise. I managed to avoid most of the heavy lifting but am dazed anyway from a brain-draining amount of time cataloguing like crazy onto an Excel document. As the titles mounted up I veered between pride and shame. It is certainly some collection: at close of play today, the total (for now) stands at 3886 titles!
