Scribd Adds New Travel Books Section to their eBook Subscription Service

Scribdscribd-logo-blk_100x28 announced on Wednesday that they had signed a deal with Lonely Planet. This travel publisher is going to be the anchor for Scribd’s new travel section, and readers will find all of Lonely Planet’s best selling travel guidebooks as well as their other titles.

Scribd launched their ebook subscription service in October 2013, and by February 2014 the service grew to offer a catalog second only to the Kindle Owner’s Lending Library. Readers can subscribe to Scribd and read from a collection of over 300,000 titles, including backlist tiles from publishers like HarperCollins, Sourcebooks, and Kensington, as well as indie titles distributed by Smashwords.

The service  costs $8.99 per month, and readers can access the ebooks via Scribd’s apps for Android, iOS, and the web browser.
