Sad, but true I suppose. After two traumatic house moves, I was forced to reduce my cookbook collection from over 200 to just about 20. (The ones I just could not part with.) And I still love to just have an occasional trawl through for a recipe now. But if you just want something specific, it is so quick and easy to go online, or of course - come here! I feel like a lot of recipes now are based on time, (how long they take) because we are so short of it. But actually if you put something in the oven (or the slow cooker) for a long time, what better time to gather family around while the food cooks? Just doesn't seem to be okay for people now (to wait I mean.)I have enough that I don't need any more! Seriously, though, it all depends on who it is being written for - just like now, there will be countless types of cooks out there, and the demand for all those different cookbooks will be there, but how many will still want a paper book? More and more are switching to looking at a phone for recipes (with a lot of recipes out there we won't mention!). And I'm sure someone is trying to come up with something where theyS can say "Alexis, fix me a Chinese dinner."
