Amazon announced a new subscription based lending program available for the Kindle and Kindle Apps. Kindle Unlimited looks pretty promising; for $9.99 per month, you can read as many books as you want. This differs from the one free borrow per month available to Prime members. Amazon’s imprints (Montlake Romance, 47North, etc) are included, as well as titles from Open Road Media, Kensington, Scholastic, and other smaller pubs. Bella Andre’s books are included, so if you’re curious to read her stuff, you can gobble them all up for $9.99 per month. This only available in the US currently. There’s also a large audio book library so you can take your stories on the go.
I plan on trying out Kindle Unlimited soon (as soon as I have a couple free weekends in a row!). The first 30 days are free, and you can cancel at any time.
What do you think Amazon’s Kindle Unlimited? Will you try it out? If some of my favorite publishers, like Entangled and Harlequin were included, I would be signing up in a nanosecond instead of waiting. I’m curious to see who else they get on board.
