Dear fellow PBSers:
I received this WL book in the mail, in postable condition.
However, on the bottom of the back cover it says "Readers' Edition - Not for resale" and has all this information about marketing campaign.
Was wondering: is this an ARC? and any advice on how to proceed? thanks.
UPDATE: I marked the book "Wrong Book" as advised and the sender has graciously returned my credit. Thanks for everyone's input!

Sounds like an ARC. I see a price on the back cover but no UPC; is there one somewhere else?
ETA: From the Help Docs:
ARCs cannot be Posted to a PBS Bookshelf for swapping, since the ARC cannot be depended upon to contain the same story/text as the published book.

Sophia, your link does not work and YES, IMO, it is an ARC. And here is what The Help Center says to do:
If you receive an ARC, you should mark it received as a Wrong Book and send a message to the sender asking for your credit back.

It is most definitely an ARC. "Reader's Edition" is another term for ARC, and the marketing information indicates it is geared for booksellers, not general readers.
