 I have twoo Church cookbooks that I've picked up at FOL sales. I want to post them, and I'm pretty sure we can, but I wanted to make sure before I do.  I have checked the Docs and searched the forums but can't find anything relevant.

 

 Thanks!

Kim, I posted on your other thread, but will repeat here for those who are interested.

If the cookbook has no paid advertisements, then it's OK to post. If the church/organization sold advertisements to raise additional funds, then the book is not postable. (The ads make the book ineligible for media mail.) If that's the case, I'd offer on the Bazaar as free-with-order (but you'll still have to pay the higher shipping rate).

If there's a form to order more cookbooks (as there often are), that's OK for media mail, because it's incidental to and related to the book itself.

Hope this helps!

Thanks for the heads up, Jane!  Neither had any other advertising other than to publish your own cookbook so I'm good on that.   I've posted them both, and figure they should go fast :)

Thank you :)

Also, one other stipulation. Since they probably have no ISBN, they must be over 50 pages, and this must be marked in the description.

Thanks, Sherry! Mine are both over 50 pages, and have both been ordered already.  Thank you!
