What is Kindle Unlimited?
Becoming a Kindle Unlimited member is like gaining access to a digital library you can visit anytime. Using the Kindle app on your preferred mobile device, you'll be able to read any of the eBooks offered with Kindle Unlimited or listen to select books with Audible narration. This monthly subscription service includes unlimited access to over 1 million titles, so you never have to worry about reaching a reading limit.
Does Kindle Unlimited come with Prime?
Unfortunately, Kindle Unlimited is a separate service from Amazon Prime, so you won't gain access to Kindle Unlimited by having a Prime membership. However, Prime does include access to Prime Reading — a similar service which lets you read over a thousand books, magazines, and more with your Prime membership at no additional cost. There is no available Prime discount for Kindle Unlimited either.
What books does Kindle Unlimited have?
Kindle Unlimited updates its book selection on a consistent basis, so you'll always have new titles to read as a member. The service has been running for quite a few years now, so there's a wide range of books to read including romance, cookbooks, biographies, fiction, health & fitness, children's, young adult, and much more. It even includes access to the complete Harry Potter series from Harry Potter and the Sorcerer's Stone to Harry Potter and the Deathly Hallows. You can browse all of Kindle Unlimited's included books at Amazon.
How much does Kindle Unlimited cost?
Kindle Unlimited is a monthly subscription service that costs $9.99 per month. You'll need an active Amazon account to become a member as well. Unlike Amazon Music Unlimited, Kindle Unlimited does not offer a discount for Amazon Prime members. However, Amazon Prime members do have access to a small selection of Kindle eBooks which are free to read with your Prime membership if you want to try reading using the Kindle app.
Do you need a Kindle to use Kindle Unlimited?
The best part about Kindle Unlimited is that you do not need a Kindle eReader to read the books and magazines available on the service. Simply download the Kindle app on your phone or tablet and you'll be able to read wherever you go. You'll also be able to read any of the Kindle Unlimited books using the Kindle program for PC and Mac computers. Of course, if you do own a Kindle, you can read any of the Kindle Unlimited titles using your e-Reader as well.
