The book I received has a tear that's pretty much exactly one inch long, looks like the sender taped it up.

I checked the Help Docs and found this:

Cover not torn or chewed/gnawed

  • some used book stores cut out a small part of the cover; if the amount missing is less than 1 inch, this is OKAY
  • a small rip (less than 1 inch) in the cover is OKAY
  • yes, that does say "chewed/gnawed" above.  That means no pet-chewed (or human-chewed) books.

Bolding done by me.

So, my initial reaction is that this book is postable and therefore I would NOT mark it RWAP. Am I correct?

You are right. If the tear looks to be one inch or less, it is still postable.
