I found this in Help Center

Book Condition Criteria for 'Swappability' at PBS

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)

Does "name written on page edges is okay" mean the edges you see on a closed book?

I think the main thing is 'readability'. writing on the outside ends of pages wouldn't bother me.

Yes, that's the edges on the outside of the book.

Thanks to both of you.  I am looking at what books to post and remembering all the books I recently gave away.  They were heavy books so giving away was probably better than mailing.
