Hello Everyone,


I work at a bookstore and I have a TON of advanced review/advanced reader’s copies just sitting around collecting dust.


So, since I can’t officially swap them on PBS, I’m giving one away free with every book you request from my bookshelf. OR if you don't see anything on my bookshelf that you'd like, you can PM me with an offer of credits for any of the Advanced Reader Copies that interest you.  (But I'd really prefer to get rid of some stuff from my bookshelf too!!) :)


Here’s what you do:  When you request a book (or several!) from my bookshelf, just PM me with the title (or titles) of the Advanced Reader’s copies you’d like, and I’ll mail those off to you as well.  Simple as that.


Below is the list of Advanced Review Copies.  (I’ve arranged them by genre to the best of my ability). I will mark a line through the ones that people have already requested, so please don’t request those!


Again, you must request an actual book or books from my bookshelf in order to also get one or more of these titles below. (1:1 ratio).  And don’t forget to PM me and let me know which one(s) you want!


Thanks for looking!!!!  Here’s the list:

Just in case you are interested, you CAN ask for a credit for these, they just can't be posted on your bookshelf.  If you offer them in the Book Bazaar you can ask for a credit b/c you are disclosing to the  receiver that it is an ARC so they know what they are getting.  Just in case you prefer a credit instead of sending out with an order or in case someone offers you a credit b/c they don't find something on your shelf they want to go along w/ the ARC then you know it is okay to accept the credit.

Just an addendum to my post - If you don't see anything you'd like on my bookshelf, then YES, offering me credits for the Advanced Reader Copies would be great! Just PM me with what you're wanting and the number of credits you're willing to offer and we'll go from there. 

Thanks for looking!!
