What if I only wrote my name in a book... Can I really not post it?

You can post it as long as it's written on the inside cover.

If it's written on the text pages, the answer is no, you can't post it.

If it's written on a non-text page that is also fine.

Also, any book with writing may be posted, if you first notify the requestor via PM, and they respond saying it's OK to mail it.

"Non-text" pages includes the very first page inside the front cover (the 'flyleaf') as well as the title page.

Here is the official policy of PBS:

No writing or highlighting or underlining on text pages

  • a signature or note on the flyleaf or inside front or back cover is OKAY
  • an author's signature on the title page is OKAY
