Amazon offers unlimited e-book subscription

Written by Fuad Abazovic



$10 a month for 600k books

Amazon is continuing to innovate and the latest idea to come out of the company is the Kindle Unlimited subscription.

Amazon Unlimited is an all-you-can-eat e-book offer that lets you read as much as you like for $10 a month. We remember a while ago Nvidia's CEO Jen-Hsun Huang telling us that the world is slowly moving to a subscription-based model for most services and we see a lot of truth in this statement. This is roughly what Netflix does for movies and TV shows, or Spotify for audio content, but Amazon's programme is tailored for e-books. The basic concept is the same - no purchase necessary, just subscribe and you'll get everything.

Amazon is offering 600,000 e-books as well as two thousand audiobooks from various authors and publishers. Some hot titles including Lord of the Rings trilogy, Harry Potter series, Hunger games series as well as some serious books are among these 600.000.

Amazon also points out that among the 2,000 audio books from Audible it offers 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, Upstairs at the White House: My Life with the First Ladies, Merle’s Door: Lessons from a Freethinking Dog, The Finisher, Johnny Carson, The Stranger I Married, and Life Code.

Some books are Kindle exclusives found only on the Kindle platform, including Brilliance by Marcus Sakey, The Hangman’s Daughter series by Oliver Pötzsch, War Brides by Helen Bryan, Ed McBain’s 87th Precinct and Matthew Hope books, When I Found You by Catherine Ryan Hyde, Whiskey Sour by J.A. Konrath, Chasing Shadows by CJ Lyons, and Sick by Brett Battles.

The Kindle unlimited service is offered to US customers and they can start a 30-day trial today. It works on any of your device including Kindle, tablet, phone, notebook or desktop.
