The “all you can eat” subscription models we’ve seen with services like Spotify, Apple Music, Netflix and Stan has just been extended to books with the release of Kindle Unlimited.
If you’re an avid reader, you can now read as many books as you want for a fixed monthly price.
Subscribers can choose from more than one million eligible titles which can be read on any Kindle device or on the Kindle app on iOS or Android devices.
Kindle Unlimited is available now and customers can start a free 30-day trial at www.amazon.com.au/kindleunlimited. After the trial the price will be $13.99 per month.
Readers can access fiction and non-fiction titles as well as classics, Australian books and also a selection of Kindle exclusives.
Also available with Kindle Unlimited will be Short Reads – books that are 100 pages of shorter and from popular authors like Stephen King, John Le Carre, Linda Grant, Andrew Taylor and Susan Hill.
And you can enjoy all of the Kindle features that readers love including WhisperSync, popular highlights, X-Ray and Page Flip.
It should be pointed out that Kindle Unlimited does not give you access to every book in the Kindle library – there are more than five million titles in the full library while Kindle Unlimited offers choices from about a million books.
If you see the Kindle Unlimited icon on a book in the Kindle Store, then it is included. Click on the “Read for $0.00” button to get started.
Kindle Unlimited will allow readers to binge entire series like the Harry Potter books or catch up with some classics like Watership Down and The 7 Habits of Highly Effective People.
Australian authors that you can enjoy with Kindle Unlimited include Colleen McCullough, David Malouf, Peter Corris and David Hunt.
If you like to read but don’t want to pay a fortune to keep up with your reading habits, then Amazon Unlimited is definitely worth a try.
