Scribd’s Recently Launched “All-You-Can-Read” Ebook Subscription Service Now Provides Access to More Than 100,000 Titles
The “all you can read” service from Scribd that includes a large portion of the backlist from HarperCollins launched on October 1, 2013. Access costs $8.99/month.
Today, a post on the Scribd blog provides an update:
Scribd readers now have unlimited access to over 100,000 books, including bestsellers and new releases, from 900+ publishers and counting. More than 1 million books have been bookmarked and saved to subscribers’ libraries. The most popular bookmarked title is Kurt Vonnegut’s Cat’s Cradle.
The Scribd blog post continues with a look at some of the titles added to the service since it launched.
Last week I shared some thoughts about all you can read (aka “Netlix-like) subscription services in this post.
Scribd’s service is competing Oyster, Amazon/Kindle Owners Lending Library, eReatah and a growing list of other companies.
