Scribd & Smashwords Team Up to Offer Readers 225,000+ Books by Indie Authors

smashwords logoWe are excited to announce that we have officially signed a deal with Smashwords, the world’s largest distributor of independent books. This means that Scribd readers will soon gain access to a catalogue of 225,000+ e-books by Smashwords’ 70,000+ indie authors. Smashwords titles will be available to Scribd subscribers for unlimited reading, as well as for individual sale.

The new partnership is exciting stuff for both Scribd readers and Smashwords authors. “I’m thrilled to learn about the partnership between Smashwords and Scribd,” said Quinn Loftis, a USA Today bestselling Smashwords author of nine young adult paranormal romance titles, including the seven-book Grey Wolves series. “I look forward to distributing all my titles to Scribd via Smashwords because I appreciate the opportunity to reach more readers.  My fans will appreciate the incredible value represented by Scribd’s subscription service.”

Smashwords’ community of authors is diverse – from homegrown New York Times bestsellers to up-and-coming writers – and their titles span an array of genres, including fiction, non-fiction, and poetry. Each Smashwords author will have their own Scribd profile page, and Smashwords books will now be featured in Scribd’s curated collections. Look out for them in your favorite genres.

Going crazy over all the new literary possibilities? We are too! Now you’ll really never stop reading.
