Recommend Me! Suggest This Page To A Friend!

This page is for all you who have excess single copies of P.E.I. Genealogical or Historical books, and are interested in trading them with others, and for those with miscellaneous books to sell. Please, no commercial sellers. We will also list book wants.

Please let me know when you no longer have or need the listed books. As with all exchanges like this, the exchange is between yourself and the person you are exchanging with, so caveat emptor - let the buyer beware. We cannot be held responsible for transactions gone bad.

To post a listing to this page, send an email to Dave Hunter, dhunter [at] islandregister [dot] com, and I will add it to the page. If all goes well and this page is used, I will eventually set up a system so that you can post your own books.
