Stefanie (trippie) | 464 comments So, there's always the consideration in my mind with these lists of "what do I count?" For example, I don't count the books that I read to my son (yet), because he's 3, and they're very short.
One of my friends has been tracking the cookbooks she has. I've started a shelf, myself, and have been adding the ones in my collection. Some of them obviously don't count as a "read," because they're pretty straightforwardly an introduction and recipes. However, I have some that have more story to them - a lighthouse cookbook that has history of the various regions and lighthouses, a Jersey Shore one that has a lot of profiles of restaurants and local history, a CSA one that has a lot of exposition about farm-to-table life...
My question is: what's your opinion? Do you count the ones with more exposition (provided you read it all)? Or do they still go in the "doesn't count" pile?

Ooh, I'd count those! Some sort of story or history that adds to the text so it's not just recipes and I learn something? Yeah, I'd count 'em!

Stefanie (trippie) | 464 comments Woohoo! Great, hearing someone else confirm my urge to do so makes me feel better, haha. I've got a few I'll be reading through this year, then. :)
