Just wanting to clarify something.  Overall, the book is in good condition, except that there is scribbling on the inside of the front cover, and the first page (teaser/quotes from reviews page) is missing the bottom 1/4 (torn off). All the "text" pages are fine.  I just thumbed through the book quickly when I got it and marked it ok.  I'm not too worried about trying to get the credit back since it was my fault for marking it ok without doing a good inspection, but I'm wondering if I can post this again  as it's a WL book.  Any ideas?

I would offer it in the book bazaar-state the damage and see if there's someone who doesn't mind. That's what I do when I have a WL book that's just a hair over the unpostable line or I'm not sure about.  Usually I find someone who wants it pretty quickly. 

What's the book?

Well, I think its postable, because writing on the inside of the cover is OK, and if the review page was missing altogether, the book would still be postable. So, with the page being 3/4 present, I think the book is also postable. But offering it in the BB is a good idea if you are not sure.

Marc, I would say the book is not postable.
