If it is available in the market to purchase, does that mean it is allowed to be posted to our bookshelf?

I have a mother-to-be journal that I've started to question if it was allowed to be posted to PBS. I clicked on the record and found that it is available to purchase in the Market.

Just wondering?

Sure is. There are people who rather spend a credit instead of money.

Do you mean a blank-book type of journal, where you write your own experiences into it or just a book listing day-by-day things to be aware of?

Blank Journals are listed as not being allowed.

I wouldn't count on everything in the marketplace being allowed to be posted on our bookshelves just because it's sold at the marketplace. That's two different business going on, just at the same site.

If it is something that is clearly stated as not allowed in the Help Center (like blank journals) then, no the fact that the Marketplace sells it doesn't trump the posting rules. If it is more like a workbook (has areas to fill in, but also reading material) then its in more of a grey area and I'd probably send in Feedback and ask

The description is: A Beautiful Mother-to-Be journal, scrapbook and sticker calendar book.

That may be a double whammy. I probably should remove it.

That title kind of reads like the list of what can't be posted here LOL!

I'd still say that it wouldn't hurt to send in Feedback and ask. Lately it seems like their definition of what can be posted as a workbook is quite broad.

I guess I missed that it was a writing journal vs a book of a mother-to-be who journalled her pregnancy.

Posting books (per PBS rules) that are in being sold in the market are allowed to be posted.
