I was reading through the conditions and wasn't sure about this one.  I have a paperback book.  The back cover has a crease going from the top to the side--several inches long.  It is not torn.  It looks like someone set the book down wrong.

Is this acceptable to post?

Still postable with creases! (unless there were so many creases it makes the book excessively worn...)

I agree with Sianeka, unless there are so many that it makes the book fall into the excessively worn stage, then there is nothing in the rules about no bent covers.
