Default Books

Good morning folks;

Am retired Petty Officer First Class from RCN 1954-1979. This is my first day on the Forum. A relative has a number of books that might interest Forum Members. She is not on line. However, one of the first things I noticed was that advertising is forbidden. Would that mean that I could not display a list of books that she is willing to part with?

Regards
Bob MacPhee
