Kobo Chat: Some Scribd Thoughts

kobo chat2

What’s new on your Kobo or other ebook device? First, let’s take a look at the electronic reading I’ve been up to lately. I’ll talk about what I’ve finished, what I’ve downloaded (bought or borrowed), and how that’s working out for me. Grab a coffee and let’s chat!


I just finished Tales From Another Mother Runner by Sarah Bowen Shea and Dimity McDowell that I found on Netgalley months ago, as well as, The Curious Case of the Copper Corpse by Alan Bradley from the library.

New to the Kobo

  • Bought. I thought this Kobo Daily Deal sounded intriguing: The Last Days of Dogtown by Anita Diamant.
  • Netgalley title. I was just approved for Within by Keith Deininger. Looks like a spooky one.


Let’s Talk

I’ve been considering trying out Scribd. It’s sort of like Netflix or Spotify but for books. A monthly subscription of $10 CDN gets you access to thousands of books, including comics and audiobooks. I love my library but they don’t always have everything I want to read. I asked around and people on Twitter seem to love it.

What about you readers? Have you tried Scribd? Are you a member? Happy?


  1. I haven't tried Scrib'd, but have been hearing it mentioned a lot on Book Riot's podcast. I think if you're into comics or graphic novels, it would be an awesome deal. I'm not doing it now b/c I'm reading mostly new releases (ARCs), but would certainly consider it if that changed.

    1. I'm definitely going to give it a try. I just need to figure out the best time to start.

  2. I would love to hear about your experience with Scribd. The price seems right and the first month is free, so it seems like a no-brainer. There. I just convinced myself to sign up. Gotta go.

  3. I love Scribd! If you join through someone that has it all ready you actually get two months free. Let me know if you want a link to take advantage of that. :)
