I ordered from and offer 3/1.  None were marked as unpostable.  2 are opening all the way to the spine in many places which I believe makes them unpostable.

Is that correct?  The one I specificly requested is the worst the pages are coming loose and when I read it I'm sure they will begin falling out.  The third is OK.

How should I mark this?

If pages are falling out of a book it is not postable so you'd mark it RWAP. The condition of the free books wouldn't really matter at that point.


  • No loose or missing text pages

For the books opening to the spine in  various places, while still having the pages entact will be a grayer area. The best description of what the site means by "no separation" I have found is towards the end of this thread where Kim posted what the Team told her. By that desciption, if the pages are all firmly in the other two books, they were OK to post even with them openning all the way to the spine.
