The winds of change have been blowing around Scribd’s Headquarters recently. This week, we both launched a newly designed homepage and added over 15 new editorial collections to the site.  That’s a whole lot of new!

Our redesigned homepage lets you browse our growing digital library for a fresh assortment of titles, arranged in all-new categories to help you discover books you love.  Some of the new collections featured on the homepage include: “Scribd Selects,” our editorial team’s favorite reads in fiction and non-fiction; “All Things DIY,” featuring books on everything from knitting to fermenting; and “Short and Sweet,” our pick of short stories, poetry, and essays.

One collection we’re especially thrilled about is “Recovering the Classics.”  This selection of famous works of fiction features original book cover artwork from the Creative Action Network, (a marketplace connecting artists from around the world with causes). With books like Through the Looking Glass by Lewis Carroll, The Time Machine by H.G. Wells, and Jane Austen’s Persuasion, each with a beautiful, newly designed cover, no wonder we’re so excited.

Classic lit not your thing? That’s ok—we’ve added several other new collections to our library, from New York Times Bestselling Authors” to “Award Winning Children’s Literature”, and we’re constantly refreshing them. Bookworms, get ready—you’ve got a lot of reading to do.
