I just received a book from a friend that is heavily wishlisted here. I am almost done reading it and would like to post it but on the outside edges (like when the book is closed) there are a few fingerprints of what looks like chocolate. I was wondering if I can post this book or if it would be unpostable. Otherwise, the book is in great condition. Any suggestions?

It is unpostable. NO stains of any size are allowed. You could post in the book bazaar forum, explaining the damage and see if you can get a credit for it or offer it as a freebie with another order, but stained books cannot be posted into the system.

A lot of times you can remove a light stain by gently rubbing with fine sandpaper. I learned that one here on the forums. But if it doesn't come off it would not be postable.
