Here's the second round of ARCs I have to offer. Thanks for the huge response that convinced me to do this again. The same guidelines apply as last time. For every order off of my shelf, you can choose one ARC (please keep in mind that some of these are rather large, even for paperbacks, so it would help defray my shipping costs if you ordered paperbacks from my shelf or ordered multiple books). The majority of these ARCs are book style (as opposed to bound manuscript) and in like new condition.All of these ARCs are wishlisted!!! If you have any questions, please feel free to send me a PM. If you'd like an ARC please post here and send me a PM with the book you've ordered from my shelf and the ARC you'd like to go with it. Thanks!

I would like to get the Raw Shark Texts. Not my usual reading style, but sounds interesting.

Thanks for all the orders! So far no one has requested overlapping books, so everyone will be recieving the ARCs they asked for. I'll be trying to get these in the mail as quickly as possible.

Ok, I think I have everything up to date. Let me know if a book you've requested hasn't been crossed off.

Thanks again for doing this, I wish more people would offer their ARCs. It is a good way to get your shelf moving and some people don't care as long as the book is readable.
