I have a hardback book I got through PBS, and apparently didn't notice at the time, or else it's not a problem, but the first inside page (blank) across from the inside cover has been torn out.  It's a library discard and I would presume that the library tore it out for whatever reason.  There's nothing else wrong with the book, but not sure if I can repost it.  Thanks.  Pat

Hi Pat,

I will take a stab at this - someone with more knowledge of PBS may correct me later. In the help documents, under Pages, I found this:

No loose or missing text pages

Since the word "text" is in there, I take that as qualifying the type of page that cannot be missing. So, a blank page (no text) missing would be okay.

Blessings,
Christina

Hi Pat - this was discussed before here is the link.   If it is not a text page, then it is postable.   Here is a discussion to help you decide.

I'll agree, it should be postable unless the missing page contains story text.

Nope - the missing page wouldn't have contained any text.  Thanks.  Pat
