It is not against policy. In fact, Bookshare encourages the choice.

Isn't that against policy?

Advance reading copies of books are distributed to various people before publication, with the proviso that the copies not be given to anyone else. If someone mails or submits an advance reading copy to Bookshare, someone somewhere has broken an agreement and we cannot be party to that. So please do not mail us advance reading copies of books or submit them to the download list. They won't be put into the collection.
