Man this is the second time I said I recieved a WL book without thoroughly checking to make sure the spine was intact. I just peeked at the book in the envelope and said I recieved it. It makes me so mad at myself and the people that are posting books that are in bad condtion. I wouldn't  post a book that has sections of the book separated fromt the spine.

Kim How would you fix this ? I am afraid I will mess it up with super glue.  I know I could post  them as freebies with orders but man it just irks me.

You should check out the Damaged Books Box in the games forum.

Even though you already checked it received, I would still PM the sender and explain the problem. They may not be aware what that type of damage looks like. I know I wasn't when I joined here.

Jessie, is it completely comming apart or just cracking?  In other words, can you read it?  If you can, you can send it to me after you finish it & I'll see what I can do with it and mail it back to you.  It's hard to tell you what to do with it when it's not in my hands and I can't see the damage.  There's a chance with spine damage that it can't be fixed though, especially if it's fully cleaved from top to bottom.

Oh, and something else - there was a post on the Q&A forum recently, and somebody has a dialogue with the PBS team, and they said you can ask for a credit for your unpostables - like WL books - you just can't post them to your shelf.  I presume this could be done in the BB or even here for that matter.  The gist of it being that if someone knows a book is unpostable & why, but they still don't mind giving a credit for it, PBS doesn't have a problem with that.  Just FYI.

The front and back spine area cover  is fine it is just like a hunk of "binded" pages that apart from the rest of the books   It is readable but it is falling apart. I am going to try glue, also I remember a post you had on repairing books so I am going to try and find it inthe L&R vault lol

Oops - I edited at the same time you posted - lol.  Look at the last part of my post above:P  You don't have to be stuck with it if someone wants it & is willing to spend a credit on it.
