Thanks to Nate for this one. He also has another angle:

In related news, Scribd does not yet know what it will do with the customer accounts it acquired whenScribd bought Librify last month.

“Librify was a startup which had been launched with the idea of offering a book club with attached ebookstore. It couldn’t figure out the book club idea but it was selling ebooks, and Scribd isn’t quite sure what it will do with the existing customer accounts.

“I asked last night, and Scribd was unable to say whether Librify’s customers (all 42 of us) will see our books transferred to Scribd’s servers, or get a credit for the purchases, or what have you.”
