The site is expanding on its existing ebookstore with a new $9-a-month all-you-can-read ebook subscription service which offers a selection of ebooks from a number of publishers, including HarperCollins, E-Reads, Kensington, Red Wheel/Weiser, Rosetta Books, Sourcebooks, and Workman. That’s a better selection of commercial ebooks than the Kindle owner’s lending library, but not quite as broad of a selection as the recently-launched Oyster. However, Scribd is charging less and they’re offering better platform support. While Oyster is only available on the iPhone, Scribd has apps for both Android and iOS, and you can read the ebooks in your web browser.”… Nate the greatest writes “Scribd threw its hat in the ebook subscription ring today.
