Professional sales people, truck drivers, and those who find themselves in traffic much too often need a break every now and then. If you’re an adventurous eater, and maybe keep a list of culinary stops to make when-in-the-area, lunch might just be a high-note on an otherwise humdrum humpday.

When is a collection not a case of hoarding? Recently, I found a group of fellow cookbook collectors on facebook. They call themselves The Cookbook Junkies. Like me, this is a group of cookbook aficionados who have amassed or are in the process of putting together collections of cookbooks. I think everyone has their own reason for what appeals to them, but it can be rewarding and comforting to find like-minded compatibility.
