I have a book that had the back cover ripped, but fixed with tape.  It wasn't ripped all the way off; only about 2/3 of the way down.   It in no way hinders reading.  Do I just say "I have an unpostable book"or does it have to be put in a special thread?

Rips/tears in the cover up to 1 inch are ok, however 2/3 of the book would make it unpostable, even if it was taped.  If it is a WL book, you can post it in the WL thread and note that it is unpostable but that you want a credit for it, or that you're willing to give it away as a freebie with an order from your shelf.  If it's not a WL book, then I'd list it in your signature that you have it available free with an order.  Also, there's a red stickied thread at the top of the forum for deals and bookshelf promotions, and that would be a good place to advertise it as well.  Finally, there is a thread in the Book Bazaar for unpostables, but you'd have to be willing to send it to someone for free.  Lots of options though.
