#FridayReads: “My Train’s Delayed” Edition

Though the trains in and out of the City by the Bay aren't the most reliable, the trains bringing new books to our library continue to arrive right on schedule. This week we've been celebrating new titles from Macmillan, Tin House, McSweeney's, and others. Not surprisingly, a few of those titles crept into our #FridayReads.

Macmillan joins Scribd

Today’s a great day at Scribd (to be fair, most days at Scribd are great, but this one especially so), because we’ve partnered with Macmillan to bring more than a thousand of their books to Scribd.

LeGuin, Elizabeth Bear, and Orson Scott Card to Nobel Prize winner Mario Vargas Llosa to celebrated social critics Greil Marcus, Louis Menand, and Michel Foucault—and they’re all available to read right now on Scribd.

Now on Scribd: Bloomsbury

Great news: Just in time for Christmas, Hannukah, and Boxing Day, we’ve added more than 2,500 books from Bloomsbury to Scribd.

#FridayReads: Hibernation edition

We don’t know about you, but we powered through this past week with one goal in mind: hibernating next week. With temperatures dropping and a slew of rainstorms passing through, we’re looking forward to staying inside with a mug of (peppermint spiked) hot chocolate and getting lost in our current favorites, which just happen to be the opposite of Christmas cheer: cold case murders, paranormal antics, and a heartbreaking fascination with the color blue.
