I picked up Second Glance by Jodi Picoult today for .50 at the thrift store.  I figured it would be WL and there's 176 people waiting. Now I would be perfectly happy with this book.  But the cover had a slight bend in it and there's a little damage to the spine.  It's not cracked or cleaved or anything although it does seem to favor a page. I can't see glue or the spine.   The cover wasn't folded over but it doesn't lay flat.  The outside damage is just that some of the coloring has come off the spine where the back cover meets the binding. But it's not torn or even starting to tear.  Would you just post it and decline any type of RC that seems picky.  Or should I post it in the bazaar, describe it and post it directly to someone?

I'd post it!!!  I think people on loooong wishlists are usually just happy to get the book.  Usually.

I'd post it.  There isn't anything that you listed that would be a problem and with 175 people waiting on it, I'm sure you'll have a taker soon.

Definitely POSTABLE.  With a wishlist that long, it would be good to get the book into the PBS circulation :)

I would definitely post it... but since it was a concern to you... you could always PM them when they accept and let them know.  I am 99% sure they will say "YES PLEASE SEND" :  )

I posted it and it's pending.  Tome it looks perfectly postable.  But if I get an RC with  a "like new, giftable" or anything that sounds picky I'm going to decline. I'm also going to sit some hardbacks on top of it to help with the front cover.
