I have a ton of ARC books I was hoping to trade for other books but I see in the rules that is not allowed.. Is there any way to list ARC's that I have but also get either a book in return or get a credit to get a book at a later time??


Thank you for your time!

Yes, you can go to the Book Bazaar forum and post them there.  Start a post and make sure you state clearly that the books are all ARCs and you are asking for 1 credit each.  Depending on the book, people may be willing to trade.

Thank you very much!!!


Would you be able to tell me how I change my last name that I have listed on PBS?? I got married 2 years ago (took a break from PBS) and I can't find any way to change my last name.

You have to contact the admins and ask them to do it for you. I had the same problem, couldn't find a way to do it in settings, and finally sent them a PM. They changed my name within a day.

Just click the "contact us" link at the bottom of the page.

If I remember correctly, you're only allowed to request a name change once. So whatever you do, don't get divorced! wink

There's a damaged books virtual box in the games forum and ARCs are allowed in that. I'd be surprised if anyone would pay a credit for one that wasn't a WL book.

I agree with Mary, I had a ton of ARCs at one time and offered them as freebies with an order from my shelf and even then couldn't get rid of them! If they are books that are not yet released or ones with a wishlist you might have some luck, but I can't imagine paying a credit for an ARC myself so would not expect anyone else to either. I ended up donating some of mine and threw the rest out before we moved.
