Uncorrected Proofs..

I just got one at a library sale and I was wondering if it is postable?

Love

I am sure there are those more knowledgable than myself on this matter but, I do not believe those are postable on this site.

I'm fairly certain an uncorrected proof falls under the category of Advanced Reader Copy, or ARC.  They are not postable for credit swaps, but you can offer them as freebies with an order.  Try the ARC thread in the Book Bazaar http://www.paperbackswap.com/forum/topic.php?t=105364 .  Hope that helps :)

NO!  James is right, those are ARCs and are not postable!

Sorry. But no.

Not allowed:

  • Anything that is not a book
  • 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)
  • CD-ROM books/e-books (books that must be read on a computer)
  • Burned copies of audio books
  • Xerox or otherwise unoriginal copies of books
  • Unbound pages
  • leaflets or pamphlets or booklets* without ISBNs (other members complain at spending a credit for these)
  • Books that require supplementary non-media materials (non-media materials cannot be sent by MediaMail)
  • Pornography (sex manuals and erotica are allowed, hardcore pornography is not allowed)
