Scribed.com

I had heard of Scribed.com, but hadn't paid it any attention until GalleyCat mentioned that the site is up to 50 million readers.

I went to the site to check it out. Basically, Scribed is a little like Lulu.com without the money (or the paper books). Authors post their work; the site makes it readable. A lot of the works there are posted by publishers, as web-based chum, to draw in readers. An example is ccfinlay's new book from Del Rey, The Patriot Witch. When you launch it on Scribed, you get a nice, pretty "i-paper" copy on screen.

So, reading isn't dead, it's merely evolving, just like publishing.

Thanks for mentioning my book, Karen! It was my first actual interaction with Scribd also and I've been pleased with the reaction from readers so far. It's the first time I've ever started getting fanmail before something was "published". And for the record (because they write me the nice checks) my publisher for these books is Del Rey, not Tor.
