Scribd Partners With Book Publishers to Reach New Readers

Scribd, Inc., the social publishing website, announced that it has partnered with major publishers to bring books and other professional works to its community of more than 50 million readers. Random House, Simon & Schuster, Workman Publishing Co., Berrett-Koehler, Thomas Nelson, and Manning Publications are among the companies uploading and sharing entire novels, sneak preview chapters, and exclusive excerpts from best-selling authors and book series for free on Scribd.com.

"Scribd has quickly become a unique online community where readers of all tastes can go to discover, explore, and share first-rate content," said Ellie Hirschhorn, executive vice president and chief digital officer of Simon & Schuster. "Its unique approach provides us with the desired flexibility to determine how our content is viewed and used on a case by case basis, and is proving to be an effective tool for creating excitement for our books."

Media brands already using Scribd to embed documents on their own websites include The New York Times, The Wall Street Journal, The Atlantic, NPR, Fox Business News, and many others. More than 50,000 new documents are uploaded daily using Scribd's iPaper reader, a technology that makes it easy to upload, share, and embed original writings and documents in their "printed" layouts, regardless of file format. Scribd documents are indexed by all major search engines, making them easily discoverable by internet users.
