I picked this bookwww.paperbackswap.com/book/details/9780743290111-Chasing+Harry+Winston up at a friends of the library sale yesterday and I didn't notice the 3 little divots(?) on the bottom.. It looks like it probably happend during printing as they are all lined up and the book is in excellent condition otherwise.. I'm thinking this book isn't postable because the rules say no tears but I just wanted to see what other people though..


Here's some pictures.. let me know what you think.. Thanks!

It looks like a production error to me. The pages are not torn.

I think its postable.

Unfortunately, the book conditions say no tears in text pages and those pages have chunks (albeit small ones) torn out of them. I'd say not postable. You can offer it in the Bazaar and ask a credit for it, as long as you explain the damage, if you think it would go.

Looks like a machine caught it at some point.

I also think it is a production error and is postable. Overall it looks like the book is in very good condition. I'd be happy to receive it.

I would bet 300+ of the 311 wishlisters would be thrilled to get your copy

It probably is a production error, but you run the risk of someone claiming it's not postable.  To be safe, I'd put it on the BB for a credit and an explanation with the links.   You can also put it in your signature line and in your blue header,  I'm not sure exactly what - but you might consider a tag linking your book on the book's detail page.

I'm w/the production error/postable crowd. Looks fine, and I'm sure the WL'ers would be happy:)  If you want to play it safer, go to the Love and Romance or Chick Lit book forum's "Is this on your WL" thread and you could offer your book with a description of the error. Seen this done many times on the L&R, Para forums, and the books are snapped up (fast!). I doubt you'll have a problem.
