If you have been reading ebooks for a while now, you might have heard about something called Kindle Unlimited. You may be wondering what is Kindle Unlimited and how much does it cost? Is it a good choice for me? Is it worth it?
Let’s explore the Kindle Unlimited program, shall we?
Kindle Unlimited is a subscription service available from Amazon for the price of $9.99 a month. For that $10, you get to borrow and read as many Kindle books as you want. No joke. If you read two books a day, you could read 60 books for only $10! Sounds amazing right?
Do you need to have a Kindle ereader to read these books? Nope! No Kindle, no problem! Just download the free Kindle app for your phone or tablet or even your computer. Feel free to check out my post on the free ereader apps available, including the Kindle app.
Kindle Unlimited is completely separate from Prime Reading and isn’t included in your Prime membership. Kindle Unlimited has a lot more of a selection if you aren’t satisfied with Prime Reading.
So is there a catch?
As with any product or service available anywhere, there are a few downsides or limitations.
This answer depends on your reading habits, to be honest. The Kindle Unlimited subscription isn’t right for everyone.
It IS worth it, if you:
It is NOT worth it, if you:
There is a 30-day free trial, so there’s nothing to lose by trying it out for yourself. No need to take my word for it!
Yes! Absolutely! Keep in mind there are a lot of bad and mediocre ones too, but there are some excellent ones too. I’m not normally a subscriber because I don’t read a lot of new to me authors each month. I do check out new authors, but I read all their books before moving on to a new one. However, I got KU for two months for only $0.99 so I jumped on it.
Let me give you a couple of my favorites in the Kindle Unlimited program.
Right now, I am reading my way through a science fiction romance series that might be kind of out there for most readers, but it’s seriously addicting! It’s a guilty pleasure of mine. There’s also a LOT of books in this series, so it being available on Kindle Unlimited is making my day. To check out Ice Planet Barbarians by Ruby Dixon, click below!
If you’re more of a contemporary romance reader, Lara Adrian’s 100 Series is now in Kindle Unlimited. She’s a previous New York Times and USA Today bestselling author! It’s also a very fun series.
Even the Harry Potter series is available in Kindle Unlimited!! Awesome! If you’ve always wanted to read it, this is your time!
Want to read the Hunger Games? That’s available too! In fact, I just borrowed it!
As you can see, it isn’t just those independently and cheaply published books. There are a lot of excellent independently published authors out there, definitely. I love quite a few of them. Just be forwarned, it’s a lot like mining. You only sometimes strike gold unless you go by recommendations only.
Personally, I never thought I would like it as much as I do. I don’t have a limited amount of books available anytime I’m looking for something to read. However, it’s awesome to be rereading an awesome series on my Kindle that I bought in paperback. Or loving a series you just can’t put down and need to wait until payday for the next one is a thing of the past.
I highly recommend trying the free membership, even if just to see if it’s right for you. It’s definitely a money-saver if you read more than you can financially afford to buy. You might be surprised how much you enjoy it.
