So....  I received a book about a week ago that I requested from here...  I marked it received...  no problem because the book itself is in excellent condition...  with one minor exception....  the previous owner had written their name in the inside cover.... now, I know that is not breaking any rules here, but apparently before they sent it to me they wanted to mark out their name which they did unsuccessfully by using a dark pink marker...  just deeply lined through their name (which I can still totally read)...  anyway, the marker bled through the cover (this is a paperback) and so at the top of the front cover you can see where the marker bled through in a line....  otherwise the book was in amazing condition.....  I am finishing up reading it right now...  and just realized that there is a WL for it...  when I originally received it, there was not one, so I didn't even worry about the marker having bled through...  so, is this book re-postable???  I'm thinking yes, but I know there are some picky people out there... so please share opinions with me!!!  Thanks in advance!!!

I would also consider it postable and would not complain if I received it from you.

Sometimes I just send the requestor a PM if I'm unsure about something like that. Cause like you said, there are some picky people. I think every time they've said to go ahead and send the book.
