A friend sent me a box of hb Guideopost books.  Are they postable?  I was thinking of some of the restrictions I've read about ARC and other types of books.  If they can't be posted I have a religious organization I can donate them to.  But, I thought maybe someone on this site would like them so I thought I'd ask.  Thanks 

I have posted them - they did ISBN's so no problems there.

they should be postable because they are books and not the magazine.  Depending on the titles (new or old) I've seen some of them being wishlisted.

note that there is most likely NOT an ISBN and you would need to set each up as if there is no ISBN.  But also search and see if that book already exists in the system that someone else already set up.  it'll save you a few steps.  (although I know some will come in here and say NOT to do that, I don't see the problem as long as the title, author and binding match especially since we are talking about 'fake" ISBN numbers)

As long as they're real books, not booklets or pamphlets, and they meet the site's condition guidelines, you should be able to post them. If they have no ISBN, you'll need to use the Post a book without an ISBN page.

You can always offer them up on the Book Bazaar as well

Thanks one and all.

I did a search for one of them and did find it.  It happened to have an ISBN but when I tried it just wouldn't post.  So I checked it and copied it because it was the same book.  I think I'm going to donate the others.  I just received a notice that a charity in our are is collecting thing next week for sale and donations for Christmas.  Gotta find stuff to donate.
