I just received a book, and in paging through it, I noticed there was pink highlighting and blue ink checkmarks near the back of the book.  Is this something that should be reported, and if so, what would the reason be?  That doesn't seem to fall under any of the 4 choices that come up when you click that there is a problem?

Definitely report this as a problem.

From the Help Center

no highlighting, underlining or writing on text pages (exception for textbooks --see below)

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).
