Not Game related -

A non-gaming post, about a month ago, I heard about so had to check it out.

Here's what Scribd says about themselves:

Scribd is the world's largest digital library, where readers can discover books and written works of all kinds on the Web or any mobile device and publishers and authors can find a voracious audience for their work. Launched in March of 2007 and based in San Francisco California, more than 40 million books and documents have been contributed to Scribd by the community. Scribd content reaches an audience of 80 million people around the world every month.

It's kind of like Netflix for books and articles, in a way.  You can read unlimited books with their subscription or they also have an avenue to publish your own work.

The monthly sub is $8.99, which if you are downloading more than one book a month is well worth it.  I opted for annual sub which was available for a short time only, considering I just finished up a 10+ novel series downloaded to the iPad, the sub is reasonable to me.  Scribd does offer a one month trial as well.

Scribd has a limited number of publishing houses in their inventory at this point, but this still adds up to well over 100,000 books available.  I've definitely had no problem keeping a variety of books in my library.

Scribd works wonderfully via any web browser or Apple devices running OS7.  My first gen iPad doesn't work (my main e-reader device), but it does work on the iPhone, PC and laptop.

If you're a reader, might be worth a look-see.

  1. Been a long time since you played UO?? Unsure about how to start playing again?? Don't worry, its easier then you may think. Go to and follow the simple instructions on downloading the UO client, Razor and/or UOSteam, then setting up your account(s) and making your characters on Zenvera!

    If you run into any problems, or can't figure something out then go to make a name, and come into the IRC channel to talk directly to players and staff that can assist you with it.

    We hope to see you soon on Zenvera!
