I have a copy of Mortal Engines that's like this one, except that it has "not for resale" on the back and the ISBN 9-999-27468-4.  Is it postable? Or could I offer it somewhere else? What exactly is a book like this, anyways?

Thanks. :)

That sounds like an ARC (advanced reader's copy).  Is it WL?  Many people will still pay a credit for a WL ARC (some people actually collect them).  You just can't post it to FIFO.  You can advertise it in the genre WL threads, in the Book Bazaar, in your profile, bookshelf header etc..,  What you can't do is post it and then ask the wisher if it's OK.

Okay, thanks.  It's a WL book and in basically perfect condition, so I figure someone probably wants it.  I'll try those places!
