I have a craft book that I would like to post, but want to make sure that is is postable. It is a paperback book with 140 pages that I purchased at a library book sale. The cover was creased at the top, but the previous owner must have pressed it as only the lines show. The first 46 pages were at one time creased anywhere from 1/4 of a page up to 1/2 of a page. Again, you can tell that the previous owner somehow pressed the book so only the lines show and the pages are completely readable.

I've received creased covers before and never thought once about marking it RWAP. I would say the same for pages.

The only time I would hesitate to post is if the crease was so deep and worn that it could potentially start to tear.

Creases don't bother me.  Couldn't find anywhere that says it would make it upostable.  The book is still in tact and doesn't affect the reading.  I think you'd be ok.

Unless the creases make the book "excessively worn" (and in this case, it does not sound like it), then the book is postable.

I would post it! Great of you to ask about it. I love those who actually care! :)
