I received a book today with a little damage to the cover. After reading the posting guidelines numerous times I accepted in "good condition".

What I need to know if you would repost it.

The book is pretty much like brand new except the front cover,  the right side edge is frayed.


The damage is only about 1/16th of an inch along the edge. and about half-way up the edge.

thanks for your help,

I agree--from your description definitely postable.  Per site guidelines, books are allowed to have up to a one inch tear in the cover.

Copied from the help docs:

"a small rip (less than 1 inch) in the cover is OKAY."

Sounds postable from your defintion. As long as the damage is only in the cover, it is definitely under the acceptable 1 in tear allowed.

If I have a question about a book I just mention it in a pm and give them the option of passing it up. I've never had anyone say no.
