I have some paperback romances where there was, inserted into the middle of the book, "postcard" pages (meant to be used to join a bookclub). (Sorry, don't know if there is an official term for those pages.)

But, in some of the books, those postcard pages have been torn out or the postcard is missing. (No glue visible or damage to spine resulting from this). You can see the ragged edges of the "postcard" pages. No text pages are missing.

So, what do you think, is it postable?

Thanks in advance!

I think that's still postable.

I believe things like that and order forms in the back of books are why it says "no missing text pages."  I say postable.

That makes three of us -- definitely postable because they are not text pages (as long as when they removed them they did not compromise the binding of the book)

Definitely postable. As long as the text pages are all intact and the spine isn't damaged from someone ripping those out.
