Subject: Should this be marked RWAP?

It's usually pretty clear to me if a book should be marked RWAP or not, but I can't decide on this one. The bottom of the front cover, where it meets the spine, apears to have a gash in it. I see the help docs state that the cover should not be chewed or gnawed, and that a "Small amount of fraying or denting at top or bottom is OKAY".  Do you think this qualifies as a small amount of denting?  Or should it be marked RWAP? Thanks!  By the way this is a heavily wishlisted book.

It's denting, and as long as the pages are intact, I'd be fine with it.  Some deep dents cause damage to the pages beyond just bending--some can be torn.  As long as that's not the case, then I'd say it's postable.

I don't think that I'd mark RWAP just for that.

That makes me think post office damage.
