No. It's not a textbook, and thus posting it is not allowed. You can offer it in the Bazaar for free or free with an order off your shelf, though.

It's pretty clear that the exceptions are for textbooks and cookbooks only.   Highlighting makes this an unpostable book.

Here's some input... My $0.02 would be to allow highlighting/writing in travel books with the same caveat as textbooks - that there is a PM exchange first.

I have several travel books on my WL that I would love to get, highlighted or not.  I bet other people feel the same way - would rather get a highlighted book than pay full price for a book they'll use one week out of their lives.

If anyone has any Niagara Falls or Orlando travel books on my WL (or close to my WL books) that are highlighted, PLEASE let me know.  :-)

Monica, feel free to suggest that to R&R if you feel that travel books should have the same exception as textbooks. But for the time being, off to the Bazaar it must go.

Sorry, Nancy. I wish I could have had a more favorable answer for you. :(
