Finding eBook Advanced Reader Copies (ARC)
Advanced Reader Copies, or ARCs, are copies of unpublished books offered free of charge in exchange for honest reviews. Offering ARCs to readers benefits authors and publishers because it generates material for marketing campaigns and helps build hype before a book’s release. For readers, this has the obvious benefit of free books and can also help grow reviewer platforms ranging from classic book review blogs to BookTok. These sites mainly offer eARCs (electronic advanced reading copies) so it’s as simple as downloading the book, cozying up in your favorite reading chair, and getting started on your read and review! That said, be careful not to take on more book reviews than you have time for on NetGalley especially, failing to submit a review will affect your credibility.
