Share a free preview of your book

We're so happy to have your work on Scribd! And we know that what you want most is to get people excited about your writing. We've found that the best way to give people a taste of what they can read before they buy it is to offer a free preview of the book. Any reader on Scribd is able to read a portion of a book for free before deciding if they wish to purchase a premium membership to continue.

Any non-member that ends up on Scribd will see something similar to the picture below when they've selected a title to read. As you can see, they'll only be able to read a certain number of pages before they'll need to join (or buy the title with an individual purchase) to keep on enjoying the whole book.


Share your work with everyone! Every person will get at least a free preview of your book so they can make an informed decision on if they want to purchase a membership. We're sure once they've reached the end of the preview, they'll be begging to sign up so the option is right on the page to make it easy to continue reading.

Check out this guide on how to share titles on Scribd and let everyone you know get a free preview of your book! 

If you need help on setting the preview limit, please contact Scribd support; they'll be happy to help.
