I have a trade size book to post. It has what appears to be some time of plastic covering over the cover. (It's not an exlibrary book.) The edges are peeling a bit; less than 1/2 inch, the cover itself is not, it's the plastic covering.  I'm not sure what it is or what to even call it. I looked in The Help Center and didn't see this mentioned. It was printed in 2006.  Does anyone know what I mean? I should probably take a picture and post it here....What are your thoughts on postibility?

I know exactly what you mean - it's kind of like the printers sort of laminated it?  I think it's one of those pesky gray areas.  If it's otherwise okay, I would say it's fine, but it's a total judgement call.

Thanks - I think it's OK too, I just wanted to hear someone else say it too.

IF it's a WL book you might want to offer it in the genre forum or book bazaar. I would say it's postable. But offering it up like that might spare you from dealing with a complaint.
