Reading's Never Been so Good

Today, more than 300 million children will never learn to read or write. Scribd wants to change this. We've partnered with Room To Read to raise awareness of literacy among children in under-served communities around the world. Joining us at are some of today's most influential authors, academics, celebrities and thought leaders, all sharing what they're reading on Scribd with their followers and fans, hoping to fuel lively discussion and action around this important cause.

Reader donations generated by the Read for a Cause program will go directly to building three libraries in India in 2011. With 35 percent of the world's illiterate population in India, we need your help to combat illiteracy one library at time. Please donate here today and join us in spreading the word --- visit our Read for A Cause profile regularly to see what our Featured Readers are reading and sharing.
