New bookswapper here...

I have a guide book on Florence that came with a map...however, during my visit I circled some points of interest on the map with pen.....what should I do now since the book is still brand new but the map has some writing on it?

Do I wait till someone wants the book then PM them letting them know the condition of the map?

I have no idea...I know if you did not have the map it would have to be offered as a freebie.  I'm going to guess that since you circled places in pen they consider that writing on the text and against rules, however it is map so I don't know.  probably best off to offer as freebie and not make someone mad at you

The map was part of the book when the book was new.  Therefore it must be included to be considered postable.  Since it has writing on it, it is not postable.

I would post this in the book bazaar and offer it as a freebie with an order from your shelf.
