Scribd, the first company to offer a reading subscription service and one of Draft2Digital’s largest retail partners, has changed the name of its “reading & knowledge” platform to Everand.

In the days, weeks and months ahead, you may notice the name change on some areas of the Draft2Digital website, such as our Partner page or within Sales Reports. We didn’t want you to be confused. There is nothing that you need to do. Any hyperlinks you may have created to direct readers to your books at Scribd will still work.

Why the Change?

According to Scribd’s website, the company has separated its content to make it easier for readers to find what they want. Everand is where readers can access ebooks, audiobooks, podcasts, magazines, newspapers, sheet music and more.

Scribd will remain the name of the corporate entity and massive digital library for things like legal documents, manuals and academic papers. The company also offers SlideShare, where readers can download professional material, such as presentations and infographics.

Should I Distribute to Scribd, err, I mean Everand?

Totally! If you didn’t know, Scribd has been a trusted partner of Draft2Digital since 2014 (and a trusted partner of Smashwords since 2013). They helped pioneer the subscription-based reading model and have been unwavering supporters of indie authors since the beginning.
