I am new to the club and didn't want to do anything wrong...I have a few Dr Seuss I can read books that I would like to post for exchange. But, my children made a few marks in them. Can I still post them?

Also, books without ISBN numbers..SHould I choose a description in the system or just make up my own?

 

Thanks,

Kathy

Writing in books is only allowed in textbooks or cookbooks.  Even then you have to PM the requestor to let them know the condition before mailing them out. 

For books w/o an ISBN-do NOT use another listing to post the book even if it looks like the same one.   It's really easy to post a book w/o an ISBN. PBS will assign a number to the book. You just fill in the blanks and the binding type. You can just cut and paste a description of the book as long as it matches what you have.  By that I mean like the back blurb of what the book is about.
