Scribd is loaded with lots of goddies. But they don’t allow you to download those for free. They ask you to upload your content (1 alternative to paying ) to get 24 hours of download.
But there’s a way around. And i stumbled it in one of the comments in Cutting the Chai blog.
First get the scribd content that you want to download. Next right click anywhere on the document ( other than the content itself) and View Source. Next click on the link that begins with “http://www.scribd.com/services/oembed…” ending in “…format=json“.
On the new page that opens up, copy the link starting with “ http://d1.scribdassets.com/ScribdViewer.swf?document_id=…” till the quote is closed and then paste it in new tab. You’ll see your document with option to Download or print. There you go, get all that you like.
