Scribd adds magazines

04:28 AM by AnemicOak in E-Book General | News

Scribd has added magazines to their lineup. Pretty limited selection, but might be of interest to some folks.

We’re excited to announce that members can now read articles from their favorite magazines on Scribd!

In addition to access to the best books, audiobooks, documents, and more, your Scribd membership now includes unlimited access to Time, Money, Fortune, People, Bloomberg Businessweek, Entrepreneur, Foreign Policy, and New York Magazine. We plan to add new magazines to Scribd on a rolling basis, including issues from Newsweek and The Atlantic in the coming weeks.

Members will have the option to read articles from or full issues of their favorite magazines, browse trending articles and topics, or explore on their own by areas of interest. Even better, you can quickly and easily find books, audiobooks, or documents that are related to the topic of any article you read on Scribd.

“We’ve always envisioned Scribd to be the reading destination that connects readers to the best written work, and magazine articles have been one of our most requested features,” said Trip Adler, CEO of Scribd. “We’ve combined books, audiobooks, documents, and now articles, around areas of interest. With this content agnostic experience, our members are now free to skim what’s trending or dive deep into any subject.”

Mobipocket to officially close at last

06:33 AM by pdurrant in E-Book General | News

After being moribund for several years, Amazon is finally going to close Mobipocket.com at the end of October.

The annoucnement on the Mobipocket home page reads:

"The Mobipocket website & its services will be permanently shut down on Oct 31st, 2016. Prior to that date, please ensure:
You have downloaded copies of all the ebook content you've purchased through Mobipocket. Please re-download any ebooks you need prior to October 31st.
You have activated all your Mobipocket CDROMs. You can activate CDROMs by clicking here."

I think I only ever bought one book from the actual Mobipocket.com web site, and trying to download that now just gives a server error.

But if you had used Mobipocket in the past, and you don't have current backups, it might be worth seeing if anything is recoverable from your account before the end of October.
