An Albuquerque woman is vying for the title of owning the most cookbooks in the world.

Sue Jimenez is trying to get in the Guinness book of World Records.

She had two people at her house this morning counting them all up. 

Jimenez tells us she has been collecting the books since she was 17 years old. 

She says the idea to try and get the record came up while she was buying another box of books. 

Her husband didn’t think anyone could own more than her.

“I got on the Guinness site and sure enough, somebody named Betsy Ross McKay somewhere in the US had in 2011, 1125 cookbooks.  So I said, I’ve got that many, I can do this.” 

The final count of her cookbooks came out to 2,970.
