I agree on your point if too many are reprinted, but I applaud those
who reprint a few of their "favorites" along with the book and author's
name.  I know for a fact that I bought "The Bread Machine Cookbook I"
because of exactly this.  Someone posted a few recipes, I tried them at
home, they were great, so I went out and bought the book.  Not only
that, I bought book II as well.  So it actually got her two sale she
might not otherwise have got.  I've been burned too many times on bad
cookbooks that I prefer to try a few recipes before investing.  The net
is a great way to promote this.  Now, how many are "too many"?  My
opinion is that 1-3 recipes are ok, more than that borders on the
complaint that you expressed.
