ARC readers are typically given the book in advance of regular readers, with the understanding that they will read it and review it on at least one reading platform. For more information on what ARC readers typically do:
ARC stands for Advanced Review Copy. An ARC reader is a person who receives a pre-published copy of a book. They enjoy access to the book before other readers get an opportunity to buy it.
ARC readers are also sometimes known as “early reviewers.” They are given a free copy of a book in exchange for leaving an honest book review on sites such as Amazon or Goodreads) once the book is released.
Becoming an ARC reader is a great way to make sure you get the first chance to read books in genres you love – plus you’ll be helping an author to deliver the best of the best to their readers!
