Any ideas on how to pass along ARC's?  I have so many in perfect once read condition...smoke free of course!  I win them off of Goodreads.com...and well I guess I must win alot because the pile is getting bigger and bigger and I have no clue how to pass them along to others to enjoy.

You can offer them in the Book Bazaar. There is a thread set up for ARCs or you can start your own. You can ask for a credit or offer a deal on them Just make sure to explain that they are unpostable books and why and follow the Book Bazaar rules when you post :) There are a few members that swap out a lot of ARCs through the Bazaar.

To find the Book Bazaar, go to Community at the top of any page, then click on Discussion Forums from the dropdown menu.  Then, when on the page that lists them, scroll down to the center of the page under Chit Chat section and look for the circus tent icon.  That's the Book Bazaar!

I see people offer them in the Is This On Your WL thread in the genre forums.  Just make sure you are clear that it's an ARC and that you want a credit (if you want one).  If they are WL book then people might want to pay a credit for one.  If they aren't WL then you might not get many takers unless you offer a deal-like a free ARC with a 2 book order from  your shelf  (or somethign like that). 

There is also The Damaged Books Virtual Box in the Games forum.  It's where we trade unpostable books with each other.
