I have some spiral bound education textbooks/workbooks. They have ISBNs and are just like a paperback book except for the spiral binding. Can these be posted? Thanks.

Spiral binding is fine, assuming it meets all the other qualifications. The Help documents list the other requirements (like number of pages).

They're a little trickier to mail, though, since the standard method (wrap the book in the paper mailer) will result in a mashed spiral.

Thanks.

Evelyn, I plan to mail them in a box if I get a request. They fit perfectly in a cereal box.

Yes, spirals are postable.  Check to make sure they do not fall into the pamphlet catagory.  Additional mail protection is a great idea.

If your books are not already wishlisted, consider posting a notice in the Homeschool forum.  Texts and educational materials move well there.
