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.

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.

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.
