New Literary Fiction on Scribd

February 12, 2015 • New & Noteworthy

We recently passed the one million title mark (queue cheers, fanfare, etc) and now seemed like a good time to take a breather and recognize a few of our favorite recent arrivals. Over the last few weeks, we’ve added titles from some of our all-time favorite small and independent publishers, including New York Review Books, McSweeney’sCounterpointTin House Books, and Columbia University Press.
