My turn this month!!
I didn't see this one started yet. This thread is for you to list your unpostable books that you are offering as part of a deal. (If you are not requiring an order off your shelf, but just want to give away your damaged books, you can post in the Damaged Books sticky thread at the top of the Book Bazaar)
Please be sure to say what makes the book unpostable. Also, please be sure to update your posts so we know what has been taken.

1 unpostable with any order from my shelf:
The first two are in pretty good shape, but have minimal water damage and/or just enough shelf wear for me to consider them unpostable. (Sorry! I'm too lazy to go get them and check them out atm.) The third has underlining. The last two are not in good shape at all, which is why I've listed them together. They're readable and not harboring any living substances though. I have books 2 & 5 in the series also that I would consider getting rid of.
