Hi Janelle ,

Welcome to PBS !

Some people list unpostables on their profiles , on their signature lines , or on their bookshelf header .

I would list them on my bookshelf header or my profile.

Also their is a unpostable WL thread in the book bazaar.

Yes to the above.

However, I do not think there is any way to search for them.

You can't really search for them.  Other than checking out the book bazaar, peoples signatures and bookshelf headers.  There are frequently games for unposstable wishlist books.  There's a Damaged Books Virtual Box. UNMODERATED- Damaged Books Virtual Box- Mail by TODAY :)

There are two threads in the book bazaar specifically for these types of books, one for unpostable WL books and one for ARC's. 

If your unpostables aren't WL'd, you can probably post a deal in the book bazaar, and offer up some of them as "freebies" or something.  Some people will put a list of them in their profile, or on their bulletin boards, and then put a link to them in their forum signatures.

There's also a thread in the book bazaar where people offer up damaged books for free, no credits involved. 

The genre specific forums also have red stickies at the top where you can offer up deals. If your unpostables are WL'd you can usually offer them in the Available WL book threads in the genre forums too, as long as you clearly mark them as unpostable copies and describe what the damage is, or if they're ARC's.
