If its considered unpostable, I would not post it. I would say the only way to pass this on is put it in your signature line or post in the BB that you have an unpostable copy of "   " and will send with an order (or for free if thats what you want). There is a sticky thread at the top of the BB for pure give aways. Even though we want the books to go to those WLing it, it really isn't right to post a book that is unpostable IMHO.

You could post it, explain the situation to the person and set up the details with them if they want the book and then cancel the order.  Seems kind of complicated though.

Please don't post books that don't meet posting guidelines.  The book can be advertised in the Book Bazaar, either free or with another order from your shelf.

There is actually a topic in the Book Bazaar specifically for damaged WL books. Lots of people monitor that topic watching for them, and they are almost always snatched right up. I think it is something like "Unpostable WL Books"

ETA: I should add that most use this topic for giving away an unpostable with an order from their shelf, if you want to just send it as a total freebie, you could use the sticky topic at the top of the forum.

Thanks everyone. I knew there had to be somewhere to post it but I didn't quite know where!

 

I saw there are 2 people wishing for it--I just hope one of them  comes to the forums :)
