Do cookbooks count as reading material if you borrow them from the library and have as many piled up on your bedside table as you do on the shelf in your kitchen?

This is a great book allot of vegan recipes. I made the shiitake soba noodle I was amazed how great the dashi turned out. I only saw one recipe that required Parmesan cheese you can easily find a vegan substitute.
