I am a super fan of the Scribd platform as it gives me access to unlimited e-books, audiobooks, podcasts, and loads of learning materials. I am on a quest to become a better version of myself and Scribd is one of my favorite internet apps for achieving that goal. For $9.9 monthly, you get access to millions of book titles. I am always listening to an audiobook, reading a book, or listening to podcasts on Scribd. It is one of the tools that has made achieving the 100 Books Reading Challenge, Audiobooks Listening Challenge, and Magazine Reading challenge possible.
All the best in your quest to get better. Don’t Settle: Live with Passion.
