Available ARCs

These Advanced Reading Copies are available to ONLY educators

and you must be approved in order to receive them.

Before a new book comes out, the publisher will print Advanced Reading Copies -- or ARCs, or galleys. These are sent to booksellers across the country as well as industry and media folk in hopes they will buy them for their bookstores, get excited about them and get some press to excite the industry and reading communities. Tattered Cover is very fortunate to not only receive single copies of these books, but often several copies of one title the publisher is especially excited about.

With our siginificant outreach to schools, we're able to provide these to book groups and classrooms as a free resource. In exchange, you must commit to having the group/classes actually read the book in a reasonable amount of time and provide feedback and reviews to the publisher, via Tattered Cover. If you're interetsed in any of the below titles, please contact Kristen Gilligan. Please include your name, the name of your school, the location of your school, and which title(s) you're interested in, and which Tattered Cover location would be most convenient for you to pick them up. Once approved, you'll get information on which Tattered Cover location you can pick them up. These go VERY quickly, as you can imagine, but we're always adding more titles. Quantities and titles subject to change.

Please note that these books aren't to fill your classroom libraries arbitrarily, they're given to us by the publishers in hopes that you'll use them in the classroom to teach, use them for a school book group, etc. and provide feedback and reviews via Tattered Cover. Please limit your selection to a handful of titles.

RULES: You absolutely CANNOT sell them. (If we find that they've been sold, you can no longer recieve ARCs from us.) You cannot quote from them. They are yours to keep: add them to the school's library for check-out, classroom libraries, etc. Or, return them so another school has an opportunity to read them.
