I have a book that I was going to put on my bookshelf for anyone to request.  When I rechecked the book (my daughter had it) I found on the cover page some grease spots.  There was a tiny piece of food.  It looks as some, either her or a friend, had been snacking when they looked at the book as it is the only page that has this stain on it.

I think it is unpostable.  Am I right?  Me, I wouldn't care, they are just a few spots on the page that gives the title of the book, the second page, that has the title also and on the back the library of congress info is clean as are others, I really checked the other pages.

But wouldn't others see it as unpostable?

I thought so; I am just being paranoid I guess on wanting to dot all i and cross all t.  Personally, I wouldn't mind if told ahead of time, but for me to send out, I didn't think it was postable. 

Thanks for the confirmation, silly to ask I know but . . .

Although it is unpostable, if it is a Wish List book you can offer it in the Book Bazaar or genre forums for a credit as long as you explain why it is unpostable.  If not a WL book, then you can always offer it as a freebie in an order from your shelf.
