Technically, the  CD's of the audio book I received from another member appear to be okay upon my visual inspection.  However, all the CD sleeves are so yucky with brown coffee-looking stains all over them that I didn't want to handle them. 

Should I say something to the sender about the badly stained CD sleeves when I mark the audio book received?  I know that I would NEVER, EVER send out CD's in sleeves with such gross-looking stains on them.

Any thoughts?

Thanks, Jan

Personally, I wouldn't say anything to the sender. The sleeves are not required, and are easily replaced for pennies. That's just me though, I usually have bigger things on my plate to worry about

The packaging isn't even required on audiobooks.  I probably wouldn't say anything if the CDs are all there in good condition.

I wouldn't say anything either as long as the CDs look good.

Maybe just suggest she ask Santa for a nice set of coasters? You know, a gentle hint. wink

Just pick up a box of sleeves from the dollar store so you will have them on hand for just such occasion. Handle the cd with a napkin when you change the sleeve. Problem solved.
