One of the books I plan to post has several passages that were highlighted in green.  Is it your opinion that the highlighting disqualifes the book from being posted?  Thanks, Bernie

My understanding of the rules is that yes, even a little highlighting makes the book unpostable unless it is a textbook.  Perhaps you can throw it in as a freebie on another order?

Yes. Highlighting makes a book unpostable.

From Help Center:

  • No writing or highlighting or underlining on text pages
    • a signature or note on the flyleaf or inside front or back cover is OKAY
    • an author's signature on the title page is OKAY
    • writing or highlighting on the text pages is NOT OKAY
      • Exception: if it is a textbook or workbook, these are expected to have highlighting/underlining/writing
        • if you post a textbook/workbook, the condition must be described to the requestor in a Personal Message
        • AND the described condition MUST BE AGREED TO before the book is sent
        • This is the one of the ONLY two cases in which a PM exchange about a book is required before the book can be sent(the other is for cookbooks--see below).
