I recently received this book from PBS and just now noticed that it has the above marking.

Should I remove it from my bookshelf?

It is SNEAK PEEK 8, isbn 1421525631

It really depends on why it is marked as not for sale or resale. If it is because it is an ARC, uncorrected proof, or any other advanced printing then no, its not ok for posting. If it was marked not for sale or resale because it was promotional or complementary, but it is a final and complete story, then it would be ok for posting.

It is a book of previews of manga comics and the stories are not complete.

So it is not OK to post?

Where is the page to post unallowed items?

Per the Help Center:

"Not allowed: Brochures/Promotional "first chapters" of books - these are not complete books, even if they have an ISBN."

So, since the stories aren't complete, they aren't postable.  You can offer unpostables in the Book Bazaar -- that's where the threads Melanie is talking about would be.

If you are referring to the old sticky thread for reporting suspicious items, it was unstickied. They would prefer those just be reported through the Contact Us link now.
