Scribd, an ebook, audiobook, and subscription service, is offering a 30-day free trial in response to the coronavirus pandemic. The CEO of Scribd, Trip Adler, had this to say:
We’re opening up access to Scribd’s digital library free for the next 30-days through a special link. No credit card or subscription commitment required. Our goal is to be a resource and ensure everyone has access to quality content and information.

Scribd posted a blog post on their website, in which the CEO spoke about their recent action to create the 30-day free trial.
“At Scribd, we believe reading is the most powerful tool we have for connecting and sharing the human experience.
“Today, with millions of people around the globe staying close to home to reduce the risk of spreading COVID-19, access to books and information is more important than ever before. Reading can offer incredible comfort: it reduces anxiety and makes us feel more accomplished and happier. So, for the next month, ewe will be making Scribd’s library – which includes millions of ebooks, audiobooks, magazine articles, and more – available to anyone, free, for 30 days through this link. Our goal is simply to ensure everyone has access to their favorite books, authors, and quality content as we settle into our new normal for the next few weeks.”

With more and more people stuck at home, we can find ourselves struggling to find things to do. With Scribd offering a free trial, it gives everyone some extra content to hopefully keep us from going stir-crazy while we’re staying home. Make sure to follow this link, as highlighted in the block quote, if you want to access to the free trial without any credit card attachment required. Happy reading!
