Top Circulating Food & Crafts Books

The Yellow Books, 1887 . Fine Art. Encyclopædia Britannica ImageQuest. Web. 18 May 2016.
“Knowledge is like money: To be of value it must circulate, and in circulating it can increase in quantity and, hopefully, in value.”
― Louis L'Amour, Education of a Wandering Man  

In the library, "circulation" means a lot of things.  What's sometimes called the "library card desk" is also known as "circulation".  When we look at a book's record, we count how many times it has checked out as its "circs". The library's collection floats (items checked out at one branch and returned at another stay at the branch at which they are returned), but its items circulate.

Right now, the days are getting shorter and colder, and our minds are turning to eating and crafts as we prepare to hibernate by a warm fire. Our top circulating food and wine books include the comfort of vegetarian one-dish meals, hearty slow cooking, and nourishing broths, but also touch on one chef's coming of age story, healthy digestion, and a discussion of cooking techniques. Plus, five of the top twenty-five titles hail from the Southwest tradition!
