A book that reminds you of someone/Ein Buch, das dich an jemanden erinnert

Another difficult one. I remember I had a lot of cookery books bought in the 1960s, for instance Elizabeth David on French Provincial Cooking, French Country Cooking and Italian Food. Another was The Joy of Cooking. They remind me of my mother because she gave me a cookery book club membership for my birthday. She didn’t like cooking. I sometimes wanted to take my cookbooks to Germany, but someone in the family firmly believed they were Mum’s books. Eventually, when space had to be made, they were all thrown out wholesale (I have The Joy of Cooking hardback here, though) as ‘Mum’s books’. It doesn’t really matter, because it would be easy enough to get the Elizabeth David new or second-hand. But I knew parts of them very well once.
