Writing a review on the Scribd App

If you want to leave a review of a title from the Scribd app, all you need to do it click on the book cover to bring up the book page and scroll down past the description of the book. There you'll see the option to rate it on a scale of 1-5 stars, or to Write A Review. Once you're finished writing your review, just hit 'Post Review' and you've just contributed your thoughts to why one should or shouldn't read that specific book on Scribd!

You can do so from the 'Book' page; the page that pops-up when you select the book's cover. When you scroll down on that page, you'll find a Reviews tab. Simply click on Reviews, and you'll have the option to rate the book from 1 to 5 stars, and to write a review.  You just need to hit 'write a review', give it a rating on a scale of 1-5 and then write why you would or wouldn't recommend a book to someone. Once done, make sure you select 'Post your Review' so that your rating is available for all members on Scribd to read. 




Please remember that in order to leave any reviews and notes, you must be a logged in with your Scribd account. 

And we'll say it again since it's extremely important -- keep your comments clean and relevant to the book or document, and abide by our Community Guidelines at all times. Marketing, solicitation, or harassment in comments is grounds for immediate termination of your Scribd account. 

Happy reviewing!
