I have 2 Advanced Reader Copies (ARCs) that I'd love to swap for one credit each:

  • Starfinder, by John Marco (young adult fantasy novel) - there is a stain on the top left corner of this book
  • Notes on Democracy, by HL Mecken (newly compiled works from the famous author) - has an ARC sticker on the front

Please let me know if you are interested.  Thanks!

- Heather

 

UPDATE: Yes, this IS "legal" according to PBS's rules.  Thanks to Dorothy for pointing out this http://www.paperbackswap.com/forum/topic.php?t=159114%A0.

Heather,

I am not sure whether you can actually do that since it is virtually listing the books for credit. Maybe someone who knows a whole lot more than me can tell you.

You can offer the ARC's as a freebie with an order from your shelf. We can not trade ARC's for credits.

Didn't I just hear you can as long as it's only done in Book Bazaar?

It's in this thread (which was in the newsletter that just came out), apparently it is allowed only in the bazaar

Thanks for all the clarification.  According to the link posted by Deborah K., my offer of ARCs for credits is totally allowed by PBS. 

So ... is anyone interested? :)
