Read Around the World: Scribd Announces Partnership with Lonely Planet

Calling all travelers! We've got some amazing news: Scribd is partnering with award-winning travel guide publisher Lonely Planet to offer subscribers unlimited access to hundreds of bestselling guidebooks. And, we’re making their guidebooks even more reader-friendly by adding bookmarking to our mobile and web features. san-francisco

To celebrate, we're holding a week long contest on Pinterest asking: Where in the world would you love to curl up with a good book? To enter, just pin your idea of a perfect book nook, near or far. The first 30 entrants will get a free 3-month Scribd subscription, and one lucky bookworm will an iPad mini, a $500 airline voucher, and a year long subscription to Scribd!* Plus, we’ll share our favorite submissions on our “Read Around the World” Pinterest board.


If you need some inspiration, look no further than our new travel collection, where Rachel Shukert show you around Europe, John Baxter will take you to Paris, and Colin Thubron lead you on a journey through Tibet. (And we’ve paired each travel narrative with the Lonely Planet guide to its setting!) Or, check out Lonely Planet’s top destinations for 2014.
