Could someone enlighten me? Reply Seth says: August 17, 2017 at 10:11 am I’m guessing it refers to “advanced reading [or review] copy.” Reply Pooka says: August 17, 2017 at 10:52 am It stands for “advance reader [or review] copy”. It’s common to give copies of books to reviewers, librarians, etc. a bit before they’re available for retail sale. I think the main idea is to give a head-start on reviews, but sometimes errors and such are caught this way too. Reply James C says: August 17, 2017 at 10:14 am My guess is “Advance Reading Copy”, a book that isn’t in stores yet.
