I was entering a book to my TBR pile and notice that in the middle of the book at the top is has a small gouge on the top of the page.  It entails about 20 pages, at the deepest it's about 1/4 into the page.  It doesn't affect the print at all.

It looks like I damaged it when opening the package except that particular book was one of four that came in a box that's easy to open if you can imagine that scenario...lol.

I think it's postable but just want other opinions.

Thanks, Geri


Spell check where are you!!!

I'd post it and then if someone orders it, PM them and describe the damage. Ask them if they still want it. I've done that several times, with 100% saying yes, send it.

Well, the posting guidelines say very specifically "no torn pages", and cuts and tears are pretty much the same thing, IMHO. But, I guess if you feel like it falls into a "grey area" then you can PM the requester, just be prepared to be the one to cancel the transaction if they do not want it. Know also that if you post the book again right away after that, it will go right back to that person, so you may have to wait a bit before you post it again.
