Scribd is Now Offering a 3 Month Free Trial

Scribd scribd-logo-blk_100x28launched a new promotion today. Their all-you-can ebook subscription service normally costs $9 a month, with a free 30-day trial, but thanks to a promotion with More Magazine, you can now get Scribd subscription for three months - Free.

Originally a document hosting site, Scribd launched their ebook subscription service back in October 2013.  They boast 300,000 titles which can be read in apps for the iPad, iPhone, and for Android. If you don't have a mobile gadget you can also read in a web browser.

After Amazon, Scribd is probably the largest ebook subscription service. They claim a larger catalog than Oyster or 24Symbols, and thanks to their catalog and global focus they probably have more subscribers as well.

Nate Hoffelder is the founder and editor of The Digital Reader: "I've been into reading ebooks since forever, but I only got my first ereader in July 2007. Everything quickly spiraled out of control from there. Before I started this blog in January 2010 I covered ebooks, ebook readers, and digital publishing for about 2 years as a part of MobileRead Forums. It's a great community, and being a member is a joy. But I thought I could make something out of how I covered the news for MobileRead, so I started this blog."

  1. Nice, nice, and very nice! 🙂

    Am sharing the news!

    I think someone has has a chance to be able to read one of the the subscription books on almost any device (all that I have anyway, which is 3), the convenience and syncing are really nice.

  2. Niki, they vary and expire, but try their blog for offers :

    And specifically, – there’s mention of a free 3 mth offer their

    I’ve tried both Scribd and Oyster, like both, but think Scribd has the upper hand in customer service contact, etc. I read and post my own books on both 🙂

    Best wishes, let me know if you get a deal 🙂

    Please remove me from your list of members. I just never get around to using your books but you still charge me $8.99 every month. My mistake.
