I have been a member of a book club for some months now and today I receive 3 books as a thank you for being a member. I have never sent or requested quilt books before since I have no interests in them so I'm not sure if these are acceptable? Looking inside the books, it looks like it's not something to read but a teach you how to make quilt books.

Here's the ISBN:

9780312675301

9780715338445

9481600595912

Hi Yengkong! Yes, as long as they meet the guidelines (i.e. no rips, stains, water damage, etc) they are postable. And it looks like the first two are wish listed. The third one didn't pull up for me, so you should check to see if the ISBN is correct.

Yes, crafting and how-to books are actually very popular and rarely posted (receivers will be thrilled).  Check the phamplet guidelines (some craft booklets are too small to be postable), but those appear to be postable books.

ETA - the third ISBN, beginning with 948, is probably 978...the number brings up a mosiac craft book.

The third HAS to be 978, as 948 is not an ISBN number that is issued.

And yes as others have said they are allowed as long as they meet the posting guidelines.

Oops, it is 978 and not 948. Thanks for the info as well.

The third one, using the 978 number, is also wishlisted by 3 people.  Definitely go ahead and list them---however you got them, they are your property, and quite a few people want them!  So go ahead and list them and they will probably be reqquested fairly soon!

The first one appears to have a lot on nonmedia content with quilt blocks being its main content, you will want to make sure that it is complete and not missing anything before posting it unless the patterns inside can be used without the included quilt blocks.
