Everything You Need to Know About Scribd
I wanted to let you all know about this amazing service I found! It’s called Scribd and it’s an audio book service similar to Audible, but with a lower monthly price tag. It also allows you to read/listen to as many books are you want each month. So, I thought I’d provide a Scribd review for you.
I just signed up myself and was amazed at the titles I found relevant to social anxiety. I realize that I’m a new user to the service, but I thought I’d provide a quick review so that you can decide whether it might be useful for you.
Low-Cost Unlimited Books
I have to say I’m really impressed with the books that I saw available on my first look through Scribd. Below is a just a sample of what I saw:
- The Anxiety Workbook (my book!) (pdf)
- The Alter Ego Effect – Todd Herman (audiobook)
- The Social Skills Guidebook – Chris MacLeod (pdf)
- How to Be Yourself – Ellen Hendriksen (audiobook)
- Painfully Shy – Barb Marway – digital book
- Rewire Your Anxious Brain – Elizabeth Karle (audiobook)
- The Worry Trick – David Carbonell (audiobook)
- The Mindfulness and Acceptance Workbook for Social Anxiety and Shyness – Jan Fleming and Nancy Kocovski (pdf)
- Overcoming Social Anxiety and Shyness – Gillian Butler (pdf)
As you can see, if you are the type of person to read or listen to multiple books each monty, you can easily fill up your brain with lots of self-help advice on social anxiety topics.
Chance to Multi-task
I love listening to things while I do other tasks like cleaning the house. It makes the time go by much faster and keeps me from getting bored. When you have Scribd, you can listen to books while you do anything!
If you commute to work, have a job that allows you to wear earphones, or just enjoy going for long walks, being able to listen to self-help books at any moment means that you can make the most of your precious time.
How often have you ordered a book on Amazon but then had to wait for it to arrive? Wanted a book from the library but couldn’t get there for a few days? When you use a digital service like Scribd, books are always available to you, regardless of where you are.
Going on vacation? You can still listen to your books. Not able to leave the house for a few days? Your books are still there. This is one of the amazing parts of the world we live in today; there’s no longer a reason to not have access to life-changing words.
Earn Your Membership Free
One of the extra benefits of joining Scribd is that if you recommend it to friends and they sign up through your special link or email, you will earn 30 days of free service for each friend who signs up. Indeed, if you sign up for Scribd through my link, that means I will receive a month of free reading. Which I totally appreciate!
I am always reading books so that I can review them for this site and give you advice on the best ones to choose. Just know that I am so grateful if you choose to use my link to sign up.
Preview and Move On
Another thing I really like about Scribd is that you’re not locked into reading a particular book. If you start a book and find it’s not really your thing, you can just stop listening or reading.
Unlike with other services, you don’t have a limit on what you choose. This is really good if you’re a picky reader and it takes a few tries before you find a book you really like.
Magazines and Sheet Music
Do you like to read magazines or play music? Then you’ll be happy to hear that Scribd has these available too. I noticed that they have lots of pdfs of the magazine Additude, which is all about living with ADHD.
That’s it for my Scribd review! What book will you read first? Let me know in the comments. If you’d like to learn more about the service or sign up, simply click on my link below.
