Sorry for posting here, but I don't know where to find the answer for this!


I have about 10 Advanced Reader's Edition copies of books that are all wishlisted, but am I allowed to post them?  They say "Not for Resale."  They are in amazing shape, so it's a shame not to be able to post them.

Any feedback would be much appreciated!   =)

No, you can't post them, but you can offer them for a credit in the Book Bazaar forum (explain that they're ARCs) and since they're WL they should go fast.

ETA, you can also list them in your signature and ask people to PM you.

No......cannot post them:

Not allowed:

  • Anything that is not a book (this includes calendars, coloring books, blank journals)
  • Anything that contains advertising
  • Advance Reader Copies* (also known as ARC s, Review Copies or Uncorrected Proofs--these are not the final versions of books)

You can offer them in the Bazaar forum......some members may give a credit for an ARC.

In addition to the Book Bazaar, several genre discussion forums have threads for posting wishlisted books.  If your ARC's are Romance, Paranormal, or Mystery, you may wish to check those forums also :)
