Hello -

I am new to pbs and its been awesome ! My question - some of my books were given to me by an elderly lady in time. She would take a purple highliter and write her name in the front cover with a large x -

where should i post that so, people would see - i have told them, and they still request them but, i didn't know if that is something i should tell them or not worry about. the books are in really good condition just has her name in them.

thank you !

Wende - Well, IF it is just her name and it is written on the inside cover, your book is postable.  So, technically, you don't need to alert anyone to the condition of your book, just post it and send it once it is requested.  However, if you are still concerned about it, what you can do is PM the requestor once your book is requested, describe the situation, and ask if they still want it.  You are only allowed to do this if the book meets PBS posting guidelines, which it sounds like it does.  But again, you are not obligated to PM the sender since it is postable.

Note that you should review the book prior to sending to make sure there is no other writing, underlining, or highlighting anywhere else in the book.  There should be no markings anywhere in the book where there is text.  If so, your book is not postable.

Hope that helps.

Those books are postable by PBS standards, as long as the writing is not on the text pages.  It's nice of you to PM the requester to let them know, but you don't have to that.

Welcome to PBS!
