Scribd

Scribd | Massive, but Nutritional, Time Wasters | Scoop.it
Scribd is a social publishing site, where tens of millions of people share original writings and documents. Scribd's vision is to liberate the written word.

Scribd provides a beautiful peek into the psyches and obssessions of our fellow humans, the range and obscurity of which are beautiful things. (There really is a book called I Love Tractors and Horses. See what I mean?)
