Andrea - what makes these "unpostable"? Is it the same condition for all of them?

These are unpostable because they were all library books and have markings inside, stickers on them, etc. Unfortunately, when posting books to PBS, there is no way to let people know that the books are in this condition, so I preferred to list them here to make sure there was full disclosure. They are in great condition for being (some of them) 40 years old. I know that would not be acceptable to some on PBS. Any books that have something wrong with their condition I've indicated on the list.
