Scribd is a membership service for readers, and get monthly access to books, audiobooks, and more - for less than the cost of a paperback.

[edit] Overview

For a monthly fee (currently $8.95) the user has access to eBooks of several types including standard eBooks of various genre, documents, audio books, comics, and even sheet music. They use a DRM scheme requiring a compatible device or program to read their books. There is a limit on the number of checked out books, 3 books and 1 audio book, per month. Documents, sheet music and select books have unlimited access. A free trial of 14 days allows exploring the collection.

[edit] Supported hardware

You can read books on Scribd through your web browser on any computer, or using the web browser built into almost all smartphones and tablets. Additionally, you can install our apps on your iPhone, iPad, or any Android device to store books for offline reading.

While Scribd supports tablets like the Kindle Fire and NOOK HD, it doesn’t support E Ink based readers like the Amazon Kindle and NOOK Simple Touch.
