I have the book Tribute by Nora Roberts, which I believe is a wishlist book.  It has what I think is a remainder mark on the top, but since I am unsure, I  haven't posted it.  I would like to... so the question is... if someone orders it, is there a way to pm them before accepting the order to tell them about the mark and make sure they want it.  I would hate to mail it out and have it sent back rwap...  like I said, I think it is a remainder mark, but I am not 100% sure.

If it was my book I'd look up the PBS rules regarding remainder marks and if they're allowed, I'd post the book. 

If the requestor doesn't want remainder marks, then he or she has to have an RC that says no books with remainder marks.

Remainder marks are permitted in posting to FIFO.

Marks on the top of the book like that are perfectly acceptable, be it a remainder mark or a name, etc.

From help docs: 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)

Remainder marks are perfectly fine, I'd post it.

I'd post it.   No need to PM.
