I have an unpostable book called " Learning from Hannah", it is unpostable because it was given to me as a present  and has a small thank you note inside the front cover, it is not very visible with the dust cover tho. If you want it PM me!!!

I believe you can post a book with an inscription inside the cover.

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.
    • for picture books/children's books - all pages, including those with pictures and no text must be included.
  • Cover not water damaged (there may be no water damage to any part of the book)
  • No writing or highlighting or underlining on text pages
    • a signature or note on the flyleaf or inside front or back cover is OKAY
    • an author's signature on the title page is OKAY

This is part of the "rules of postability." Under "No writing or highlighting..." it states that a signature of note on the flyleaf or inside the covers is okay. I get books all the time with the previous owner's name written inside or address labels and book plates. Those are all okay to post.
