I often run across books with gift inscriptions inside the front cover or on the first page.  Are these postable?

Thanks!

The Book Condition Criteria for 'Swappability' at PBS state that

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 or underlining on the text pages is NOT OKAY

So from your description, the books sound fine.
