Cookery Books For Free

As regular readers will know, I’m going through a bit of a declutter at the moment. I’m trying to make space for other things in the house and I have a considerable list of books that I’m willing to give away, providing you can cover the cost of the postage! When I mentioned last night on my Facebook Page that I may have some books to give away I never expected to get such a big response!

Due to the huge demand, I’m listing the books below for everybody to get a chance to have a good read through and see if they’re interested in anything. I will bundle books together but no more than 3 books to any one person. I can only post to ROI I’m afraid.

I will take reservations by comment on the blog below this text. It’s a simple case of first come, first served & don’t worry I have a record of the time comments are made.

Postage will be €4 for 1 book, €7 for 2 books & if you want 3 books it will be €10. Bear in mind that I have to walk up and down to the post office so you’ll receive your books within the next fortnight as there’s no way I can post them all at once! I’ll only accept payment via PayPal as it’s the fairest way to ensure that we’re all protected, please use your email address when commenting so I can send you the details of how to pay.

I did have more than the books on this list, however I was approached by Ballymakenny College in Drogheda who are looking to stock the shelves in their new school. I’ve reserved some books from my collection for them and if you’re in the area you might be able to add to their shelves too.

Here’s my book list:

  1. Marks & Spencer: Girls Night In
