Amazon launches $9.99/month Kindle unlimited eBooks service

Amazon logoIf you love reading eBooks on a regular basis, Amazon has a new service that it hopes will suck you in (just as it does with Amazon Prime). But unlike other Prime “add-ons” like Prime Instant Video or Prime Music, this one will cost you extra. Kindle Unlimited will give you unlimited access to over 600,000 eBooks and thousands of audiobooks for $9.99/month.

The service is available using Kindle hardware devices, Amazon’s existing Kindle apps or with the Kindle cloud reader.

To give you a taste of what to expect with Kindle Unlimited, Amazon is also offering a 30-day free trial of Kindle Unlimited. And paying customers will also be given a free, 3-month trial of Audible.

“Kindle Unlimited is also by far the most cost-effective way to enjoy audiobooks and eBooks together,” said Russ Grandinetti, Senior Vice President for Amazon’s Kindle division. “With thousands of Whispersync for Voice-enabled audiobooks to choose from, you can easily switch between reading and listening to a book, allowing the story to continue even when your eyes are busy.”

There are some caveats to this service, however. While popular books from the Harry Potter series, Diary of a Wimpy Kid, and Lord of the Rings trilogy are represented, Kindle Unlimited doesn’t support all of the major book publishers. Most damming, however, is that the service is currently only available in the United States.
