Hello, I am really new to this--posted some books months ago, and finally had some time to decide which others I could part with, but some I've had for a really long time and the pages are, naturally, yellowing.  Postable?  I've read the guidelines, and searched the help but could not find this specifically addressed.  Sorry.

TIA,

Juanita

Juanita,

Yes, yellowing pages are allowed as long as the discoloration is from age. If members don't want older books they a) wouldn't order them in the first place. OR b) would have requestor conditions about the discoloration. 

Just make sure that there is no discoloration from mold or mildew.  Sometimes older books can get those problems while sitting in a box or on a shelf.

Thanks, Heather, for the fast reply!  Guess I had 'em in the right place, because it's not mold or mildew.  <whew>
