Lisa, according to PBS guidelines some yellowing of pages is allowed, as long as there isn't any staining from a liquid source. So, it sounds like you have some postable books on your list. Also, if the tears on the cover are less than an inch, they are postable.
You should really check out the PBS guidelines page for swapping. This may make your list considerably shorter.
