talking about unpostable (ie color booking for example) are unpostable but would that go for madlibs as well?

Aren't madlibs just a little pamphlet? They were when I was a kid, I certainly wouldn't have classified them as a book.

yup. Some people don't read the rules or just don't think they need to follow them.

Madlibs...as in the 'fill in' puzzle books?  Probably classified similar to a coloring book...which would be a no :-( 

Otherwise, what Melanie said...

There are some that are the length of a childs book (maybe 20 or 30 pages) and bound like a childs book. I don't know if they are postable, though.

I've seen Mad Lib books (not pamphets) that would be postable, as long as nobody had written in them.  I just googled "mad libs book" and found one with 125 stories, so it must be a book.

I would think that they might more likely be classified like crossword or or other puzzle books.   It's hard to use them if you don't write in them - only photo-copying them would be the answer.  They don't usually cost that much to buy.  I doubt I would think to look for one here.

ETA- fix typos
