My 2013 Cookbook Challenge

I'm one of those awful people that loves cookbooks but never uses them. I'll see them, fall in love with them - rarely buy them new but regularly pick them up at bookfairs, and then never touch them again. I'm constantly on the hunt for recipes but it seems the more cookbooks I have the more often the internet is my first port of call! In an attempt both to get more use out of them and declutter, this year I've set myself a challenge. Use all of my cookbooks by the end of the year. Whichever ones aren't used get donated. Here's the list. Like my TBR challenge, I'll update it during the year with my progress. I've already made a good start, knocking three off.
