Read My E-Books Collection @ Scribd

Recently I have been uploading lot of my e-books collection to a new site, which is actually a file sharing site similar to “Rapidshare+Youtube” but this one focus more on e-books and images only. The site also have a great features called iPaper, in which readers can read the e-books directly from their own browsers without the need to download the file and open it using any software. iPaper actually is an embed Flash object (like those to play video on Youtube), it loads the e-book instantly on the browser. You just need a browser that support javascript and a Flash player plugin installed. Using Mozilla Firefox 3 is the best to use this feature.

Uploading a file is very easy, the web upload provides two-way to upload, either using flash upload that support multiple file at once, or you can using a single file uploader. Scribd also has a tool that allow its user to upload files directly from their computer without using a browser, its the Scribd Uploader support both Windows XP and Vista. Amazingly, Scribd does not limit filesize for uploading (as far as i know…) even though e-books normally does not exceed 100MB in size.

Scribd also has other features such as marking the books that you like, placed it in your favorite list and also a download link if you want to save the e-books on your computer. Scribd is not just a file sharing site, its also a community site, contains features similar to MySpace such as adding friends, submitting comments, joining groups and a discussion forum. Each user is rated by how many times his/her books(or images) is viewed by others, higher number of views will make you to the Top User list. You can also adding the books you uploaded into your profile to be featured in any groups of the same interest.

Scribd is a Silicon Valley startup creating technology that makes it easy to share documents online. You can think of Scribd as a big online library where everyone can publish original content, including you! Part of the idea behind Scribd is that everyone has a lot of documents sitting around on their computers that only they can read. With Scribd we hope to unlock this information by putting it on the web.

However, there’s always sumthin not perfect in every FREE service. Here some that I have found:

  • You must be a member to download files, direct reading by anyone.
  • It limit the number of files you can download everyday (I think its around 40-50 file per day).
  • Uploader can forbid you from downloading, only allow for reading it from the site.
  • Scribd will delete copyright files if they found it. Even though until now there still a lot of copyright books being shared.

Take a look at this site and don’t forget to give your response here. Hope you join it and add me in your friend list.

    I in finding this topic to be actually one thing which I think
    I would by no means understand. It seems too complicated and very huge for me.
