1 free  with any order from my shelf.

Phule's Paradise by Robert Asprin (technically postable, with a half inch tear on the back cover)

Julian's House by Judith Hawkes (technically postable, but I feel like it's close to being on the last read)

Orion by Ben Bova (same as Julian's House)

Never Let Me Go by Kazuo Ishiguro (some water damage.  No staining, just some wavy pages in the first third of the book.  Does not interfere with the reading in any way.)

 The Road From Coorain by Jill Ker Conway.  Just discovered a a few pages have minor, minor water damage at the bottom corner of a few pages.

The Ultimate Mallworld by S.P. Somtow. Looks like someone tried to clean up staining on the bottom across pages with bleach or something.  Slight bleach-type staining, but caused no water damage, if that make sense.  If this book was sitting on a shelf, you'd never notice and you'd never notice during reading either.
