Most of you are young and hip and happening, so you probably already know about this. But just in case you don't, there's this cool new site called scribd (I'm told it's pronounced scrib-dee, but I could be wrong).
Anyway, scribd takes the concept of personal publishing and takes it to the next level. You can upload books (or documents, or anything readable) to the site and sell them. They can be read online or downloaded in PDF format for reading offline. It's all very space age and glittery.
I heard about scribd from my buddy Kemble Scott, the dashing author of the bestselling novel SoMa. Kemble is using scribd to release his latest novel, The Sower. To quote the cover: "A scoundrel becomes the sole carrier of a cure for all diseases, but the only way to pass it to others is through sex. Some want him stopped. Some want him dead. Some just want him."
How can you not read that? You know you want to. And it's only $2! That's right--just two bucks. It's a Recession Era bargain. So go on over to Kemble's scribd page and start reading.
