Scribd is a reading service that allows you to search by authors, genres, and titles. You can then save the titles you find to read or listen to later. This is a great thing right now, when we’re all being asked to stay home and with libraries closing for the duration.
Most books will require you to have a premium account to read or listen to them. Premium costs USD$9.99 + tax per month, but if you use my Scribd link, you can get 60 days for free. This only works for new subscribers, sorry! Once you’ve gone through your 60 days, you can use a credit/debit card or PayPal to continue your premium subscription. If you find Scribd premium isn’t for you, you can cancel.
A few things to note with Scribd. First, you may find that an entire series isn’t available. Second, you will find books marked unavailable until a certain date. Third, you may find that a series is available in its entirety, but you have to split it up between audiobooks and eBooks. Fourth, they state premium is unlimited. There are reports of it not being unlimited. I have not personally experienced this.
Scribd has apps for both iOS and Android, plus you can actually read or listen on their website as well. When I’m working on the computer, I will listen on the website, and I use the iOS app for audiobooks on my iPhone and eBooks on my iPad. As far as how many books you can save, I have not found a limit yet.
Scribd Premium is a great service. You have options for both eBooks and audiobooks. Yes, most of us can use the Libby app through our libraries. But if you find books you want are on hold, look on Scribd. You can often find those books there without having to wait.
