Claire’s TBR Shortlist | Countdown Until Scribd Changes Policy

I have had a subscription to Scribd for about 10 months, and in that time Scribd’s borrowing policy has changed from unlimited ebooks and audiobooks to unlimited ebooks and 1 audiobook per month to 3 ebooks and 1 audiobook per month (with unlimited access to certain ebooks/audiobooks). This latter change is going to be enacted sometime this month. While I completely understand from a business perspective that these changes are necessary to run a profitable and sustainable service, I can’t deny that I’m disappointed to be losing access to such a wide array of ebooks. So, in preparation of this change (and in light of the fact that finals are finally over), I am going to attempt to read as many Scribd ebooks as possible before the policy change occurs. Since I don’t know exactly when this is happening, I have no idea how many of these I’ll actually get through.

My Scribd TBR shortlist, vaguely in order of priority, consists of the following:

  1. God’s War by Kameron Hurley (oh man I read the first page of this one and I can already tell it’s going to be incredible.)
  2. Lumberjanes by Stevenson, Ellis, Waters, Watters, Allen
  3. The Man in High Castle by Philip K Dick
  4. Tomorrow, When the War Began by John Marsden
  5. Losing It by Cora Carmack
  6. The Good Luck of Right Now by Matthew Quick
  7. The Child Thief by Brom
  8. The Girl Who Circumnavigated Fairyland in a Ship of Her Own Making by Catherynne M. Valente
  9. After the End by Amy Plum
  10. Dangerous Girls by Abigail Haas

Is it likely that I’ll be able to get through all these books before time runs out? Probably not. But, I will be spending a not-insignificant amount of time in airports soon, so I think there’s a good chance I could get through a few of them. Hopefully, some of these will be part of the unlimited selection Scribd will offer!

Happy reading,
