Great, thanks!  Ellisa I was looking at the info on the Accounts page and it now says you can "accumulate up to 18 credits". I don't remember if that's what it always said, but there's a long list of audiobooks in my Scribd library that I'd like to read. Lee Child, Tess Gerritsen, Jodi Picoult, series and standalones. Will see if I can accumulate some more credits. Right now my daughter and I are both listening to Ready Player One and I'm enjoying it a lot.

Thanks again, Jill - hope you can get your reading time back on track - I know I need my reading time!

All updated! Enjoy the audiobooks.

I actually miscalculated and it will roll back to Andra next, then Elissa. Just let me know when you've had enough. If you hit your limit, it can always roll back around to you again in a few months so you can stock up again.

I don't particularly care for reading on my tablet instead of my e-ink kindle, but Scribd at least has some settings that I can change to make the experience less painful.  So I can turn down the brightness and change the colors of the font and the background.  Now if they would just give me the option to read in landscape mode with a single column of text...

Andra I don't remember whether I'm using the Scribd app specifically for the Fire downloaded from the Scribd website or the Android app downloaded from 1mobile.com - but I can get one column in landscape mode. In fact I don't see an option for changing to two columns. It might be a function of screen size - I have the HD6 (perfect size for me for reading books) and they may seem that screen size too small for two columns. At any rate, wherever you got your Scribd app, you might want to try the alternate version and see if that makes a difference.

Thinking about it, I suspect I got my Scribd app from 1Mobile - I beta tested the version specifically for the Fire and didn't love it. They've definitely improved it since that first version, but I seem to remember that there were a couple more features in the regular Android version.

Maybe you have the older version... I didn't think about alternate locations gor the app. I'll check out 1mobile to see if I can find the single column view there. Thanks!

Okay - I just peeked and I have 3 more months and 3 more credits.  I'll give it a couple of weeks or so - don't want to be greedy!  (Well, no more than I already am... :-[

Okay, Jill,  it's been two weeks and your site has racked up another free year for me and 18 credits. So back to Andra, I think?  And again, thanks so much, Jill!!

Andra, I have just updated the site, so your Scribd goodness should start rolling in soon.

Enjoy that new series!

Sigh. I still don't have any time to read. Here's hoping Scribd is still going strong a year from now when I get my reading time back.

I made a post about Scribd on my web site a few months ago which is now the fifth result for the search "Scribd free trial" on Google and the first one which still has an active free trial link. Because of that, I get a lot of people using it. I get a free month of Scribd each time someone does.

My Scribd subscription is now paid up through 2019! I really want to spread the wealth on this for kboarders who also use Scribd. So, if you give me your free trial link, I'll put it in the post in place of mine for a while so that you can get all those free months.

To find out if you have the "Read for Free" option so that you can get free months (I think only people who pay by credit card have it), you need to access your profile menu and choose the "Read for Free" option. There will be a link there that you need to give me so I can put it on my web page instead of mine.

You can just post your link in this thread. The only thing I ask is that you let me know how many free months you got while your link was active. If I have more than one taker, I'll change it out every month so that everyone has a chance. Like I said, at this point, you'd be earning around an entire year free with just a month in the post. That could change, obviously, but it hurts nothing to try, right?
I tried it and it kept asking for credit card.  I hate that.  If it's free for 2 months why ask for paypal or credit card in advance?  Why not wait to see if I like the darn thing first?  I really do  hate that so I didn't do it.

That's to make sure that you don't keep signing up for a free trial with a different email address every month. Scribd is a legit company. If you sign up with a credit card and then get on the free months gravy train with us, you would end up never paying them.

You can probably get a visa gift card, put a few dollars on it and use that to sign up. That is how we get around the Apple requirement of a credit card on file to use the app store.

Thank you again for doing this.

I'll sort out the next person coming up over the weekend. Too lazy to look back in the thread right now to see who that is (finally have some reading time, so it's not getting wasted!)

Hi Jill - There's no rush, but to save you time scrolling back, I think I'm up next.

Enjoy your reading time!! We are driving 16 hours tomorrow and I think I'm going to give the Longmire books a listen and see if I like them. I've heard good things about them and I like the show.

Here's my link:  https://www.scribd.com/g/1cyu7x

Thank you!

Yeah! No scrolling time. That gave me an extra five minutes to read. Precious :-)

Eeek! Well, thank goodness for sleepless nights so that I can catch up the ol' to-do list. Elissa's info is now linked up.

Eve, I will put your link up in a week or so since I want to give Elissa the opportunity to earn some more time. If you don't see signups starting in about two weeks, please remind me that I need to update.

Jill - Thanks for hooking me back up.  Things were pretty slow over the New Years weekend and I wondered if my link was still working, but I had a couple of signups so far this week, so hopefully people are signing up for memberships for their Christmas present e-readers.  I'm listening to Delirium today.  Such a guilty pleasure.  Sometimes I indulge in angsty teen dystopian romance.  :)  Happy New Year!

You're welcome, glad to hear you're still enjoying the subscription. I'll pull it away from you next week, sadly. I am making good use of my KU subscription this month and will be reading/listening to some book called Outage that I downloaded last week that looked pretty good :-)
