Amazon has announced Kindle Unlimited — a new subscription service which allows customers to freely read as much as they want from over 600,000 Kindle books, and listen as much as they want to thousands of Audible audiobooks, all for $9.99 a month.
Finding a great book is easy, and there are never any due dates — just look for the Kindle Unlimited logo on eligible titles and click “Read for Free.” Customers can choose from best sellers like The Hunger Games, Diary of a Wimpy Kid and The Lord of the Rings, and with thousands of audiobooks from Audible, like The Handmaid’s Tale and Water for Elephants, the story can continue in the car or on the go. Kindle Unlimited subscribers also get the additional benefit of a complimentary three-month Audible membership, with access to Audible’s entire library.
Kindle Unlimited is available starting today and is accessible from Kindle devices or with Amazon’s free Kindle reading apps. Start your free 30-day trial today here.
Russ Grandinetti, Senior Vice President, Kindle:
“With Kindle Unlimited, you won’t have to think twice before you try a new author or genre — you can just start reading and listening. In addition to offering over 600,000 eBooks, Kindle Unlimited is also by far the most cost-effective way to enjoy audiobooks and eBooks together. With thousands of Whispersync for Voice-enabled audiobooks to choose from, you can switch between reading and listening to a book, allowing the story to continue even when you eyes are busy. We hope you take advantage of the 30-day free trial and try it for yourself.”
