I picked up a Manga book today and on the cover it states "FOR PROMOTIONAL USE ONLY.  The book is posted into PBS, but there are no copies available.  I don't think it's an ARC (doesn't  seem to indicate it anywhere).  Can I post this book?  Thanks.  Pat

Promotional books are postable as long as they are the final edition of a book.

Thanks.  There's nothing to indicate it's not a final edition, so I'm going to post it. Pat

Is it a tokyo Pops manga? because we get given those sometimes that say that on them and they are the final published copy. Just made to be given out at schools/stores etc  When we have the scholastic book fairs, some of those are used as display copies and the ones to be bought are in plastic wrap.
