Upload, Search And Read E-Books Or Share Presentations At Scribd

Lately, we have seen a rise in the number of websites that are offering free and paid digital content from common users instead of established publishers. A few weeks back we reviewed such a service known as Glossi, which allows creating and sharing digital magazines online. Scribd is a similar web service which allows uploading, sharing and even selling digital content. Scribd has its own market place where you can find both free and paid content to buy including e-books, documents, magazines and the like.
