One of the best features available on Scribd is that when you come across a book you know you're interested in reading (but don't have the time to start right away), you can save it for later in your own personal library. You can also save books in Lists: a group of books with a similar theme or purpose. Scribd is a library tailor made for your needs—you're the one that gets to create what you feel is the ideal library for yourself. You can save titles to read for later, track the books you're currently reading, and see all the books you've already finished reading; depending on how you want to save and organize your Lists!
Anytime you want to see what's in your "Saved for Later" page or edit it, just tap the bookmark icon found in the navigation menu at the bottom of the app.
There are four main sections of your Saved titles:
- Lists — all of the Lists you've created and added titles to (previously called Collections)
- Stored Offline — this section includes titles that you've explicitly stored offline on your device
- Everything — the cumulation of all the above categories and the default displayed when you access your Saved titles
Everything will be listed based on the chronological order they were added or last accessed and is the default filter. Tap on "Everything" to sort by content type or by "Full Access Only".
If you want to just remove a title from your Saved, you can do so right from the list. Just tap the three vertical dots to the right of the book and select "Remove From Saved" from the options that appear. Otherwise, you can remove large numbers all at once. While viewing your Saved titles, tap "Edit" in the upper righthand corner. Select all the books you wish removed and then tap "Remove from Saved" towards the bottom right. Once you select that, you'll no longer see them in your Saved. (On Android, "Edit" will be a small pencil icon on the top right. Tap on the pencil, select the titles you'd like to remove, and then tap on the small trash can icon in the top right to remove these from your Saved.)
Don't have any books saved? Starting adding books to your Saved! If you've found a book you're interested in, here's how to save it for later:
When you first select a book's cover it'll expand and you'll be able to see the synopsis, reviews of it, and so on. If you don't want to start reading it right away, you can click the "Save for Later" option right at the bottom of the cover.
If you encounter any issues with your Saved titles or have further questions, please contact our Support Team. Happy reading!
