PBS Condition Criteria state: "No torn or chewed/gnawed pages".  So, if you have a torn page, regardless of whether the text is involved, it is unpostable.  I'm sorry.

From the ever helpful Help Center: It being a WL book does not change the rules in any way. 

Pages:

  • No torn or chewed/gnawed pages
    • yes, that does say "chewed/gnawed".  That means no pet-chewed (or human-chewed) books.
  • No loose or missing text pages
    • for travel guide books - maps if designed to be detachable may be detached, but must be included.
  • Cover not water damaged (there may be no water damage to any part of the book)

You can still offer it in the Bazaar "as is".  Since it's WL, someone might still want it.

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 square inch, this is OKAY
  • a small rip (less than 1 inch) in the cover is OKAY

SandyP, this is the line you probably saw in the rules about tears.  Doesn't sound like it applies to your original question, but I thought I'd post it so you didn't think you were crazy. smiley

SandyP, there is a thread in the Book Bazaar called "Unpostable WL Books" or something of the like. I've posted a few in there for credit.
