Advanced Reader's Copy-it's the (usually tradesize paperback) uncorrected proof that publishers send out before a book is released to get reviews and opinions. THey aren't postable because they are often paperback versions of a hardback and use the same ISBN and because sometimes the book is edited or even the title changed afterwards.
