I believe I have 4 free months since you put my link back up - my daughter also has the link on her BookTube channel page but I get at most one or two/month from that and this is 4 in the past week, so its still working. Ill let you know when I get 12. 😉

Thanks for letting me know! I'm glad to hear it's still working for you.

Has Scribd changed their terms?  I was updating some apps and noticed Scribd was one to be updated due to a change in their usage - no more subscriptions limiting to a certain number of books monthly.  They now state members can read unlimited books, including audible books.  I wish they would send emails to their members when major changes such as this happen.

They are going to change their terms tomorrow. The update got out early.

That is interesting.  I haven't been using scribd as much, partly because of the credits and partly because it's getting harder to find anything on there that I want to read.  Quite a few of the series that I follow no longer publish new titles on scribd.

Wow - I came on here to let Jill know I've got my 12 months and it's time to give the next person up a shot. And saw the news about Scribd going back to (almost) unlimited reading.  I wondered why I couldn't find the February Scribd Selects - now I know why. :)  Very happy about the switch back to unlimited reading. 

And thanks again, Jill!

Sorry, haven't visited kboards much lately, but I have now updated that for you, etexlady! Let me know when you've got 12 months saved up, and if there is anyone else who wants a go then, I will switch it over to someone else.

I was really excited about the change back to unlimited, too. Good news for us, for sure. And you are welcome, Meemo.

Another thing that I have recently discovered is that, because Amazon was continually finding ways to break the Scribd app for Kindle, they have really brought their website up to a high standard and it works great as a reading. Sadly, Fire TV is determined to keep any non-Amazon approved content off of it with their intentionally broken proprietary browsers. Funny how that happens. But you can still sideload Chrome and use it to access their sitye.

I am now happily reading Scribd on my bedroom TV before bedtime with the Fire TV Stick remote as a page turner. Much better than having to wear my reading glasses in bed. I hate those darn things and see fine at TV distance. Then again, I may be the only human being on the planet who spends as much time reading books on their TV as watching TV. I was going to set up the livingroom TV, too, but my Fire stick just died. I'm getting an android TV box to replace it, and I am sure it will work just as well. I stopped my Prime subscription a while ago, so Fire TV no longer makes that much sense to me, and the Fire Stick is a lot more expensive than android boxes with better hardware.

My own Scribd is paid up until 2042 now. I hope that it (and I) are still around then. My Kindle Unlimited (KU) subscription expires this summer (I got a half-price two year subscription at Christmas one year), and I'm not renewing. I have always liked Scribd better than KU because of the traditionally published history, lit fic, etc. while still having a good selection of indie authors.

I have had trouble finding anything to read in the fantasy genre on KU for a while (unless it's an author I already ready read) because of the keyword stuffing, etc. that skews search toward books with bare-chested men. Which is about the only thing I don't read!

Mine expires in August this year, so I'd like to go again.  Scribd is definietly more useful to me since they've gone back to unlimited reading.

Jill, new sign-ups have been really slow.  I hoped there would be more interest since the rules changed.  I'll keep you updated.

Sorry to hear that sign ups have been slow, although I hope you've gotten a few! Since there's a line forming, could you let me know when you get 6, and I'll cycle people through a little faster?

I'll put tdanzie first, if that's okay, being a first time player.

Andra, since you've still got a few months stored up, I hope you don't mind waiting?

Jill, I now have six sign-ups so it's time to give someone else an opportunity.  Would you put me at the end of the list so I can cycle through again?  Thanks so much.

Thank you, etexlady! Hopefully the rotation will be back to you before your months run out.

I have updated the links and tdanzie will hopefully have six free months soon. Please let me know when you do.

Next up:

1) Andra
2) Meemo

And then we'll go back around again. I have enough months to last until I'm 84, so I don't need to dip in there.

I forgot to put on the page that my YA books were back on Scribd and available for borrrowing when I made the last update. Sheesh. That was the original point of the post on my YA books site, although it's been fun to get so many people something for free!

If anyone else wants into the rotation list, please let me know. We've had a few participants whose free months will be expiring soon, so please let me know if you're still using Scribd and need those months.

Just to keep it organized for me, here is where we are at in the rotation:

1) Meemo
2) etexlady
3) tdanzie

Happy reading, all!

Things were really slow and then I got 4 yesterday so I am up to 6.  Please put me back on the end of the list if nobody new asks.  I've been using it a lot more since it went back to unlimited.
Thanks again Jill!

Thanks, Andra! I have just updated it with Meemo's information. The waiting list now looks like this:

1) etexlady
2) tdanzie
3) Andra

If there's anyone else who wants in, please let me know and I will get you on the list.

I redirected my series-specific site to my main site today, so we'll see if the SEO juice gets lost and the magic goes out of the page the links are on. Hopefully not, as I redirected it a way that it shouldn't lose much, if any search engine rank. Here's hoping.

Meemo, please let me know when you have another six under your belt.
