I have a copy of Karen Kingsbury's "A TIME TO EMBRACE" that has the last page (a part of the 2 page study guide) glued in a little weird. At first I thought it was cleaving but when I looked closely at it, it seems to be the way the last page of the book was secured- glued to back cover instead of in with all the other pages. All of the other pages are tight with no cleaving and the cover are nice. I know that several have this book wishlisted.  Is this a postable book? Thanks for your help.

Pat, if it appears that someone glued the page into the book after it fell out, I'd say it's not postable. But if that's the way it was secured by the publisher, then I'd post it. 

Does that make sense?

I agree with Jane.. If you bought the book brand new and it was like this I would post it. but if someone requests it I would let them know about this flaw in the book!!

But if this book was given to you or you got it from somewhere used, you can never tell if the book was published like this or someone else did it..

I bought it used, but looking at the way it is attached, it appears to have come from publisher like that. What would you do?

I'd post it. No pages are missing or falling out.

I guess you could always post it but make sure that you tell the person who requests the book from you about this.. most people will not care.. But some will!!! Just make sure you let this be known to who you are sending it to so that you are not out a Credit!
