I've noticed a few people that offer a free ARC with an order in the Book Bazaar.  I used to work for a bookstore and I have a massive amount of these laying around.  Is this an acceptable way to get rid of them?  I'd like to clear off my bookshelves to make room for new books, but I want to make sure I'm following the rules as well.

Yes, it is. There is even an ARC thread on the Book Bazaar where you can list your ARCs..

If it were me, I would list them in my notebook entry. Then post in the ARC topic and add to your sig line that you have tons of ARCs listed in your notebook (or profile) that  can be had for free with an order from your shelf. You should get a lot of traffic.

It's perfectly OK to offer them as a freebie with an order from your shelf.  You just can't post them for a credit.

Yes, Yes, please let us know what ARC's you have.  Sherri's idea of putting them in a notebook entry under your profile would be great..   Be sure to repost here when you do so we can all scuttle over to the list !   Karen
