Excess Cookery Book Details

OK, so, as noted on Twitter, in order to be allowed to have any lovely new cookery books, it transpires that (in the interests of a Happy Marriage), I shall have to get rid of some of the old ones.

So I'm starting with these...

I'm pretty sure I don't actually need these:

And, sad as I am to lose it, this is also very rarely used now:

These ones are slightly more painful, but I'm trying to focus on reaping the Glorious Glorious benefits...

I was always secretly slightly disappointed with my edition of Good Housekeeping. It's just not the same as the one at my parents' house. Some things don't need to be updated:

And this one is actually a genuinely good book - much better than it looks, in fact. The recipes aren't necessarily the best thing ever, but the handy tips and illustrated techniques are absolutely fantastic. I know how to joint a chicken and fillet a mackerel, but if I didn't, this book is definitely where I'd go to look it up!

Let me know (comment or twitter or something) if you fancy taking any of them off my hands.
I can probably hand them over in person to Londoners, and could almost certainly arrange something for anyone less local.
If not, then I guess I'll hit Freecycle :-)

Finally, here are some cats.
You can't have them, though - they're just a lend...
