Disappearing DVD collections are just one example of how streaming content is transforming our home libraries. So it seems only natural that an online subscription service will replace the books and magazines that take up shelf space.

Scribd is a massive online, subscription-based library of all sorts of content: books, audiobooks, magazine and newspaper articles — even sheet music. All the content is accessible via browser or mobile app, perfect for any commute or just unwinding at home.

Unlimited access to Scribd costs less than the price of a paperback a month, and gets you more than a million books, including new releases, best-sellers and classics. Like any good content platform, Scribd offers personalized recommendations, and the option to browse based on interests, collections and curated selections. Readers sure seem to like it, earning Scribd 4.7 out of 5 stars on the App Store in more than 12,000 reviews.

Buy now: Get six months Scribd for $35, or a year for $80. That’s 35% and 25% off the usual price, respectively.
