Scribd announced in a blog post today that the ebook and audiobook subscription service has launched three new discovery features to help readers find new books.
The new features are Interests, Trending and Featured Reading Lists.
Interests groups new books together by subject, allowing users to “[d]ive deep into the interests that matter to you”; Trending offers a curated list of what’s being read most, also grouped by subject; and Featured Reading Lists offers suggested books from influencers, including Elizabeth Gilbert and Elon Musk.
“Scribd is committed to changing the way the world reads,” said Trip Adler, the company’s CEO. “With more reading being done on mobile devices, content types are becoming less important than the content topics themselves. That’s why we decided to create an experience that is driven by interests, not mediums.”
