How does the idea of a Netflix-style service for ebooks grab you? That's the idea behind Scribd's new worldwide service, which lets you read books for $8.99 a month. The service is starting out with books published by HarperCollins and a number of smaller publishers.
Scribd's service works on iOS devices, Android devices and Macs and PCs. With an active subscription, you can read any book in the Scribd digital book subscription service; put down one mid-chapter and pick up another one and keep going.
HarperCollins is the first major publisher to announce a partnership with Scribd. Authors available through the service include Paulo Coelho, Neil Gaiman, Marian Keys, and Elmore Leonard. Besides HarperCollins, other publishers participating in the service include E-Reads, Kensington, Red Wheel/Weiser, Rosetta Books, Sourcebooks, and Workman.
