I have an unpostable copy of "Fix-It and Forget-It Recipes For Entertaining."   This is a wishlisted book (4 wishers).

ISBN:  1561483796

Hardcover

(It is probably postable since it is a cookbook, but I'd rather be safe than sorry so I'm going to say it's unpostable). 

It has stains & wet stains on some of the inside pages (probably from using it to cook!!).  It is also an ex-library book so has the marking of a library book.  Other than that, really a nice book.  Asking 1 credit.  Please PM me if interested.  :-D

I'm not sure but I don't think you are supposed to ask a credit for an unpostable book. You can offer it as a freebie if they order another book/books from your shelf.

Melissa asking a credit for an unpostable book is perfectly fine. As long as the damage is explained so the requester knows ahead of time what they are getting. An unpostable book just shouldn't be posted into the system.

This book is probably postable under the cookbook exception anyway as long as the sender gets the requesters approval of the damage before sending:

 

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)
  • 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
    • writing or highlighting or underlining on the text pages is NOT OKAY
      • Exception: if it is a textbook or workbook, these are expected to have highlighting/underlining/writing
        • if you post a textbook/workbook, the condition must be described to the requestor in a Personal Message
        • AND the described condition MUST BE AGREED TO in a reply PM before the book is sent
        • This is the one of the ONLY three cases in which a PM exchange about a book is required before the book can be sent (the others are for travel guidebooks and cookbooks--see below).
      • Exception: if it is a travel guide (not a picture book but a guide, such as Fodor's or Lonely Planet), some writing on text pages could be expected.  All maps must be present and included with the book - if detachable it is OK if they are detached, but they must not be missing.
        • if you post a travel guide that has writing in it, the condition must be described to the requestor in a Personal Message
        • AND the described condition MUST BE AGREED TO in a reply PM before the book is sent
        • This is the one of the ONLY three cases in which a PM exchange about a book is required before the book can be sent (the others are for textbooks/workbooks and cookbooks--see above and below).
    • No staining

      • Exception: Cookbooks Exception:Cookbooks may have some mild staining, since these are used in the kitchen and while cooking, and some minor degree of staining could be expected in a used cookbook.  Also a small amount of writing in cookbooks could be expected
        • HOWEVER, if you post a cookbook and it is stained and/or written-in, the condition must be described to the requestor in a Personal Message
        • AND the described condition MUST BE AGREED TO in a reply PM before the book is sent
        • This is the one of the ONLY three cases in which a PM exchange about a book is required before the book can be sent (the others are for travel guidebooks and textbooks/workbooks--see above).
    • this exception applies to the covers of cookbooks also.
  • Page edges: remainder marks are OK.  A name written on the page edges is okay (if it does not bleed in and obscure text on the text pages)

Melanie,

I thought about that after I posted what I did that it would probably fall under the condition of a cookbook. It will be a great book for someone who is interested in it.

 

Marcia,

I just p.m. you about some more books from your shelf that I want to order from you.
