Subject: Does this make a book unpostable?

I received a WL book the other day that has some crayon markings on the outside of the pages (not on the inside at all). There's nothing wrong with the book otherwise -- in fact, it's in great condition, which I think is why the original sender posted it. I was just curious as to whether anyone thinks this book is actually unpostable and/or would be unhappy if they received a book with markings like this. There's a WL for it, so I'd love to re-list once I read it, but I don't want to list it if I'm not supposed to. It doesn't bother me, since I have a little one and I understand how crayons get on everything...but someone else may feel differently. Thoughts?

if it is on the outside of the book (when it is closed you can see it on the page edges) then it IS postable.  it is sort of like when you get books with remainder marks from the bookstore
