For those of you not familiar with ARCs, they are Advance Reader Copies or uncorrected proofs of books. They are released before novels are published and are bound like a paperback book. All of these ARCs are in good/excellent condition. I'll most likely be adding more in the future. If you see a title you are interested in please feel free to pm me.

  • Sloane Sisters by Anna Carrey
  • Audrey Wait by Robin Benway
  • Hero.com Rise of the Heroes by Andy Briggs
  • Unclaimed Heart by Kim Wilkins
  • Impossible by Nancy Werlin
  • A Banquet for Hungry Ghosts by Ying Chang Compestine
  • Tales of the Madman Underground by John Barnes
  • The Boy in the Dress by David Walliams
  • I am a Genius of Unspeakable Evil and I want to be your Class President by Josh Lieb

FYI You cant request credits for ARC books. THey can be offered for free with the order of a book, just like any unpostable, but can not be swapped for credits.http://www.paperbackswap.com/help/help_index.php

polbio, yes, you can, as long as the ARC isn't posted to the system.  Same goes for unpostable books.  I'll look for the relevant board topic, but what you linked to was the help center in general not the topic referring to this issue.

From help center: *ARCs may be swapped "unofficially" in the Book Bazaar Discussion Forums.  They may not be Posted to a PBS Bookshelf. http://www.paperbackswap.com/help/help_item.php?id=204

There was a thread when the post first came up that discussed this issue - I'm now looking for it.

polbio,

Here's a link to the discussion where PBS has stated it is okay to offer an ARC for a credit. They just can't be posted to bookshelves & the receiver must be aware & okay with receiving an ARC for 1 credit.

A interesting tidbit from the Newswire

leann found it, but I did post the link to the help center that specifies that this is okay in my post above. :)
