I recieved a paperback book today that has a small section on the back cover that is scraped off.  The scraped area is somewhere between the size of a nickel and a quarter.  It's not torn, and none of the text is scraped off.  Otherwise the book is in excellent condition.  Is it repostable?

Yes, cover tears need to be less than 1", sounds like that one is so it is postable.

Does a cover scrape count as a cover tear?

I think a scrape would qualify under normal wear and tear on the book.  I wouldn't worry about reposting it.

Okay, good.  It's in perfectly readable condition aside from the scrape, but I wanted to be sure.  Thanks!
