Scribd - millions of free books & documents online - "social publishing"

Well, maybe I'm very late to the party here, but I've just spent half an hour perusing this site, which was new to me - www.scribd.com - thought I'd post here, in case anyone else wants a look. There is an occasional mention of the site here on dvdf, but thought it warranted its own thread.

Post here if you find anything good !
