All You Can Read for $9.99 – Kindle Unlimited

Amazon has new subscription reading service called Kindle Unlimited that lets readers have unlimited access to 600,000 eBooks and thousands of audiobooks for $9.99 per month.

Amazon already as a Kindle Owners Lending Library for people who spend $99 a year for the Amazon Prime service – but that is only available to people who own Kindle tablets. This subscription will work with Kindle eReaders or with the Kindle app for iPhone, Android, Windows tablets and phones or Blackberry mobile devices.  Windows 8 PC and Mac users can also read books on their computers. 

Among the eBook titles available are Flash Boys: A Wall Street Revolt, Water for Elephants, Oh Myyy! – There Goes The Internet, The 7 Habits of Highly Effective People, All the King’s Men, Wonder Boys, Ask for It, The Princess Bride, The 5 Love Languages: The Secret to Love that Lasts, The Atlantis Gene, Kitchen Confidential, The Sisterhood, Crazy Little Thing and The Blind Side along with thousands of literary classics. You aren’t going to find any current bestsellers available though.

Amazon lists the Hunger Games trilogy, Life of Pi, The Handmaid’s Tale, Capital in the Twenty-First Century, The Great Santini, The Man Who Mistook His Wife for a Hat, Winter’s Tale, Boardwalk Empire, El Narco and Upstairs at the White House among the 2,000 audio titles.

There will also be hundreds of thousands of titles exclusive to Amazon, many of them coming through Amazon’s self-publishing platform.  Just as with any other Kindle books, they will stay synched across multiple devices.

As with music streaming services, you’re just renting the material and if you drop your subscription service, your content goes away as well. And I should remind you that your local library probably offers eBooks and audio books to download for free to your devices through apps like OverDrive and Hoopla. You’re already funding those with your tax money.

However, if you read a lot in a month and enjoy exploring new titles you might enjoy Kindle Unlimited. Amazon is offering free 30-day trials of the service. But make note, you have to remember to cancel if you don’t want to continue the subscription.

    Good tip, Cynthia. As an anecdote it is possible to get the first month free and with many ‘Best Sellers’ costing over ten bucks, ‘Such a Deal’.
