This is really more of a "Questions.." thread type post, but since this is the section where folks would be posting about this, I thought I should ask here.  I have quite a few that I think would qualify.  (Some are actually WL books and I'm a bit uncomfortable with skipping the FIFO, so I may just post them, but with the Holidays coming up, I also feel like I'd like to make them available to people who might not be able to purchase books at full price as gifts, but that's my ethical dilemma for another day.)

So, for today (and the non-WL books) What do you consider to be a giftable condition book?

Hi Meghan - Giftable to me means it looks like it came from the bookstore.  I completely understand your dilemmas because I give LOTS of books as xmas gifts to neices & nephews because I can't afford to buy gifts.  I'm not as well off as the rest of my family but if they insist on buying for my daughter, I get gifts for all of their kids.  THANK GOODNESS I have some avid readers in the family :)  This site has saved me on that (though it's becoming an addiction & now paying for all the postage is really racking up)!!  THANK GOODNESS for the book bazaar & bob also because that has helped a lot.  I've started rambling so I'll let you go  LOL  ;o)
