I just received this book & IMO it's unpostable- I would never in a million years post it here, but on the other hand maybe it's still tecnically ok?  I'd like some guidance from the people who know better before I do anything.  I don't know how to (or if I can) load pics here so I'll just do the links:

Technically I guess the binding's not totally broken because the webbing is still there & technically it's not at risk of loosing any of the text pages (which is all I could find in the conditions for official reasons that it's unacceptable). Thoughts?  TIA!

Per the Condition Guidelines:

Binding:

  • Must be intact, with no separation on the inside or outside of the book

 

Seems to be a significant amt of separation there, particularly in photo 2, so I'd say not postable.  Politely ask for your credit back.

Cheers,

Catt

Thanks Catt!  I just wanted to make sure I was reading the guidelines right & this is clearly unpostable. (I just can't beleive it's tis bad & they still posted it!)  I mean I've gotten a few books that were unpostable before, but usually I don't find the issue until I've already marked it ok, so I jsut let it go & not re-post it.

I would mark that as RWP.

Unpostable.  No doubt.
