New Literary Fiction on Scribd

header
We've been on something of a tear lately, adding great new books left and right (including comics and graphic novels!). 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.

Unlimited comics, now on Scribd

ComicsBlogTriFrame
That's right. We've just added more than ten thousand comics and graphic novels to our library, including titles from Marvel, IDW/Top Shelf, Valiant, Boom! Studios, Dynamite, Archie, and more. For the first time, characters as diverse as Spider-Man, My Little Pony, X-O Manowar, Transformers, and Archie are all hanging out in the same place. It's kinda like having an entire comic convention in your pocket, only way cheaper and without the smelly convention center.

#FridayReads: What Year Is It? Edition

CuriousCollage

Maybe it’s because we’re all still recuperating from holiday overload, but a lot of us found ourselves gravitating toward stories about the stresses of social situations, whether raging parties or awkward dinners or just trying to make small talk with someone you don’t know.
