Earlier today, Amazon launched a new program for the Kindle called Kindle Unlimited. In this program, prescribers will pay $9.99 a month and get unlimited access to over 600,000 titles for your e-reader or audio books. The full description from Amazon can be seen below.
Kindle Unlimited gives you the freedom to explore. Try new genres, discover new authors, and dive into new adventures with unlimited access to our wide and varied selection of books. From rhetoric to romance, or comedy to tragedy, you will find unlimited stories waiting to be discovered. Relive the classics you grew up with, start on that best seller you’ve been wanting to read or try one of the hundreds of thousands of books you won’t find anywhere. Find your next great read today.
Right now, they have a promotion going on where you can get the first thirty days for free then it will charge you the day after the 30th day.
This program will offer users the opportunity to try and avoid getting bootleg books and support the authors by reading their books. Of course, if you like a book good enough, you can buy it still. This is the perfect program for all you avid readers out there who can read multiple books in a month. After you have finished reading the book or audio book, you can just return it through your Manage Your Content link and then get another one. It’s just that easy.
To start your 30-day trial, you can go here.
