My Vegan Library

Before you judge, just know that I did have a problem. <nervous grin>

Starting in July of 2010, I went a teensy bit overboard with buying vegan books from
These books were mostly bought throughout that year and a bit. 

Some books were gifts.                   The majority was me.

Believe it or not, I have actually read most of these books, and I use a surprising number of the cookbooks on a regular basis.
You may not be impressed, but I sure am!

** I love books and reading. My dad has always loved reading, so I grew up seeing my dad reading a novel often (a lot of Stephen King growing up).

Plus, who doesn't think their dad is the coolest?! 
That's rhetorical.

My cookbooks & spices

I understand that I don't really *need* all of these books. A lot of the information is available online, but I love books and their pages. I like being able to lend my books to friends, or to recommend books. Not to mention(but I'm doing it anyway!), I like giving my money to these authors.
I know that we are moving towards 'e-readers' and whatnot, and I can truly appreciate that reality. I'm just going to really miss falling asleep with a book on my face.I try to organize my books into categories: vegan, dogs, sign language, vampires, visual art, feminism, education/university, dance, Tom Robbins(my favourite author), zombies, gardening, fiction, photo albums, and childhood books.
