Who's better at hand-picking books for you than you? You can browse Scribd's library and create lists of books based on a certain theme or a specific purpose - all tailored to your personal tastes! You can even share these lists with everyone on Scribd by making them publicly available, or set them as private to be enjoyed by only you.

Creating a List

If you don't have a list yet, create one! There are a few ways to go about it depending on where you are on the site but it's always an easy process. If you've Saved a number of titles and you want to organize them into lists, you can do so directly from the 'Saved' page. To get there, select 'Saved' from the menu. Once there, you'll see an "All Lists" option to the right:


When you click the 'Create List' option in your Lists view, a pop-up box will appear where you can name your list and decide if you wish it to be publicly available or for your eyes only. Click 'Create List' when you're done, and voilà — you have a list!

To create a list via the Scribd app, tap on the bookmark/ribbon icon at the bottom of the navigation bar on the app. Once there, you'll see a tab for your Lists at the top of your Saved books page.


To create a new List, just click on the icon in the top left corner. A dialog box will pop up, prompting you to name your new List. From this screen, you can also choose to make your list private. Any List that you've made private will have a lock symbol next to the title when you view the page for that List.

Adding a title to a List

There are lots of ways to get your books organized. You can add a title that you're currently reading from its About Book page by selecting the "Add to List" option, which will bring up a prompt where you can choose which list you'd like to add the book to:


Another option is to add titles into a List directly from your Saved titles. You get to your Saved titles by selecting 'Saved' in the menu on the left on the website, or by tapping the bookmark icon on the bottom navigation bar on mobile.

Once you're viewing your Saved titles, you'll see a three-dot icon to the right of each title that will open a menu of options for that book including "Add to List". From there, you can either add the book to an existing list or create a brand new one.

Managing titles on the app? Simply look for your “Add to List icon” — selected titles will be highlighted in teal.


Removing books from a List

If you'd like to remove a book from a List, you can do so from the List page using the Remove from List icon:


Editing a List

If you ever need to change the title, description, or privacy settings of a list, you can do that easily by selecting the list from your 'Saved' page then clicking the small pencil icon to open that list's options. Or on the app, go to your Lists tab in your Saved books. From there, tap on the List you wish to edit and press the icon in the top right corner to open the menu.



If you have any trouble with any of the above, please contact Scribd support and describe the issue so that our Support team can be of assistance.

Happy reading!
