I have a paperback book that is in good condition except for  one issue..............on the outer spine a piece of the cover is missing exposing the binding/seams of the pages. The pages are still secure and all there...just exposed. 

is this book postable??

If not....any takers on an unpostable book with lots of good reading time in it still??  Frecc with anything else off my shelf or one credit by itself

My first thought is that it would fall into the missing piece of cover cannot be more than 1 inch square category and would be postable if it was small enough. But, if the missing part is due to wear-n-tear I think you could easily run into someone that thinks it does not pass the "in good condition and not excessively worn" test.

If you want to offer it as a freebie, you can do that it the Book Bazaar.

Hm.  I agree with Melanie.  I think, for me, it would fall into the 'I wouldn't RWP it, but I wouldn't feel comfortable posting' gray area.
