Scribd launches subscription e-book service for Android, iOS and web

Many of us associate Scribd with embedded documents on websites, but the company has been quietly building an e-book platform — first by selling content and later by soft-launching a subscription service. The company is now making its strategy clear by formally launching the e-book service and introducing content from HarperCollins, its first major publisher. Subscribers worldwide can pay $9 per month for access to both HarperCollins’ back catalog and independent releases through apps for Android, iOS and the web. Customers can also buy any books outright, including HarperCollins’ newer titles. Like with any Scribd document (and Kindle for the Web ), customers can both share what they’re reading and embed books into websites. If you like the prospect of all-you-can-read services like Oyster but want broader platform support, you’ll want to take a close look at Scribd’s new offering.
