Children's book - perfectly good condition except that it has a handle and the handle is loose and keeps falling off. When the handle comes off it leaves two little holes in the spine. Does NOT affect the readability of the book at all.

Postable or not?

Sorry I don't have a digital camera, my dad sat on it and broke it.

Here's the PBS link though: http://www.paperbackswap.com/Compact-Kids-Bible-Thomas-Nelson/book/1400311195/

However something to note about the book - the PBS listing for the book does not show it as even having the handle nor does the description mention the handle. The Amazon listing doesn't show it either although it does list it in the description.

Bren, is it possible to glue the handle so it will stay?

Tried glue. It held until I actually tried to pick the book up by the handle, but the book is too heavy and it won't hold if you try to carry it by the handle.
