Earlier this month, we announced that we’d be accepting cookbook donations for a little informal cookbook drive I’ve always dreamed of doing.

We’ve received hundreds of cookbooks through a donation drive we’re hosting at the Statesman this month. To donate, bring any extra cookbooks you might have to 305 S. Congress Ave. by Feb. 2. Addie Broyles / American-Statesman

You can imagine how excited I was when the cookbooks started coming in. First, a grocery sack or two at a time, and then I was getting emails from readers who had boxes of books they were ready to get rid of. Now, we have more than 20 boxes of books that we’ll soon be sorting and distributing to local groups who could use them. During a livestream video last week, I took the camera back to the room where we have the books so you can see for yourself how they are stacking up.

(Know of a worthy recipient? Just let me know at abroyles@statesman.com! We’ll have lots to go around.)

We’ll stop accepting cookbooks on Feb. 2, so you have a week left if you’d like to donate in the lobby of the Statesman, 305 S. Congress Ave. Monday through Friday, 8:30 a.m. to 4:30 p.m. Thanks for your help!
