I feel like I just won the lottery.
The cookbook lottery, that is.

My city's library is having a huge fundraising book sale this weekend, so yesterday I decided to go and check out their cookbook selection. I was surprised to see they had a ton of stuff there, and I came out with far more than I meant to get. The best part? I got 37 books FOR FREE. Completely free! Most of these are promotional pamphlets, but still! Awesome!

Here are all the books I got for free:

A few selections:

I picked up this plus one other Jell-O cookbook for free:

And here are the 10 books I actually paid for:

The top one is Cooking for Campers. There's also a small book of Newfoundland recipes. The thin green one at the bottom is a book of seasonal/holiday recipes. Can you believe I paid only $3 for those huge Gourmet cookbooks?! I'm tempted to go back again today...

Anje graduated with a Honours Bachelors degree in History with a minor in Museum Studies. She currently lives and works in Japan's least populous prefecture as an assistant English teacher.


  1. What a haul! I'm so jealous. The spice one looks like it could be especially interesting.

  2. Oh I love these kinds of finds.
    If I could have a room full of bookcases, I'd fill them all with old/vintage cookbooks!

  3. Awesome!!! Great finds and you support your library!

  4. Wow! Great finds. I love when the library has a book clearout!

  5. Wow! Yes, You just won the lottery.
