Perhaps it depends if your local library is a member, but this is a great service. I love it and it and save money every month instead of spending it on subscription services.

Nothing bad about free books.

Yes, they are old, but they are classics, so you can do a lot worse than spending an afternoon with any of the books they have available.

Seriously! I was a long time subscriber until you guys went to the limited number of books per month. When you returned to "unlimited" version, I tried you again, but it wasnt worth it. When I tried to unsubscribe, I thought I did, but you charged me!

Then I recently noticed that there is a small continue button almost hidden and then multiple additional pages I had to continue through.

Why not make it simple to unsubscribe instead of making all your ex customers pissed off?

That is a HORRIBLE business policy!

Update: After many emails Scribd finally refunded the money, but the company STILL needs to make unsubscribing more transparent!

Tip for consumers: Better than Kindle Unlimited but if your local library has online lending, it is totally unnecessary.
