I posted a WL'd book a few days ago. I pm'd the person to let her know that the book was a worn, but still MET all PBS guidelines - no liquid damage of any kind, no cleaved spine, no highlighting, etc..

I just wanted to let her know since it was a WL'd book, it has been swapped many times and it *has* seen better days. I also mentioned that the pages are discolored some from age (not from any kind of mold, liquid or damage). I guess I should mentioned the requestor has no RCs.

I told her I'd wait until I heard back from her to mail the book or not, but I haven't received a reply (its been a couple of days). Now its time for me to mail the book. Do I go ahead and mail the book? Or cancel until I hear from her?

If it's been a few days then the book may have moved down to another person on the list. When I have a questionable or unpostable WL book I just post in the bazaar that it is unpostable but I'll send it free with another order from my shelf. If it's a popular WL book you could probably even offer it free with TWO orders off your shelf, help you offset shipping a bit for sending extra books.
