Scribd Expands Audiobook Catalog in Deal With Penguin Random House
E-book subscription services are bulking up and expanding their libraries and services, as the competition to become the Netflix of books escalates. On Thursday, the subscription reading service Scribd announced that it would add more than 9,000 audiobooks from Penguin Random House Audio to its platform, increasing its audiobook catalog to more than 45,000 titles.
The deal will give Scribd's subscribers access to narrations of popular titles by authors like Lena Dunham, John Grisham, Gillian Flynn and George R.R. Martin.
