How To Read a Cookbook

I track the books I read on Goodreads, and I count reading cookbooks towards the total books I read in a year.

How do I define reading versus just looking through a cookbook?

I read all the stuff before the actual recipes, usually an author intro, their recommendations, etc.

Then the actual recipes. I look at each one, read the intro and then skim the ingredients and steps.

I’ve therefore looked at every page and feel ok counting it as a read book.
