Scribd adds 30,000 audiobooks to its subscription service

Scribd's e-book subscription service seems to be making some inroads on Amazon's turf, and now the company is looking to take a swipe at Audible's lunch. From today, subscribers will be able to access a library of 30,000 audiobook titles that include big name authors like Suzanne "Hunger Games" Collins, Haruki "Norwegian Wood" Murakami and Cormac "The Road" McCarthy. Fortunately, there's no extra charge despite the bounty of new content, so users will still only be paying their regular $8.99 fee, and is available on Android, Kindle Fire and Nook devices. What about iOS users, you presumably ask? The company's still working on that particular app, but it's scheduled to land "in the coming days."
