January 18: Kindle Unlimited
Love reading books? Spend oodles of money buying books? Travel a lot? Always on the go? Ever get tired of physically carrying books?
If you answered yes to any of the questions above, you need to try Kindle Unlimited by Amazon. It’s unlimited reading, unlimited listening and you can use any device, you don’t need to have a Kindle! Just download the Kindle app on your computer, tablet and/or phone and voila! For $9.99 a month, you’ve got books and audiobooks at your fingertips!
I buy a lot of books and every time I’ve gone to buy a book this past year, I’ve seen the “Kindle Unlimited: Free” sign next to it and have downloaded it instead. It really is much easier to carry one device with all the books I want to read, especially when I’m on the go (which is often). Don’t get me wrong, sometimes I will still purchase the book, but having immediate access to books (especially travel guides) have been a huge time saver.
You can cancel and restart the membership anytime, so there’s no long term commitment. And if you don’t read often and are weary of spending $9.99/month, then consider getting the amazon prime account. Amazon Prime offers a free 30 day trial then $99/year for regular membership or $49/year for student membership. It not only gives you 2 day free shipping on almost all items, but also entitles you to choose one featured early release book for free every month with Kindle First and borrow one Kindle book per month from over 500,000 titles for free on any Kindle device with no due dates.
It took me a long time to hop on the Kindle Unlimited and Amazon Prime bandwagons. But, once on the ride, I’ve never looked back. Hope you get a chance to try out both as well!
Happy Reading & Listening!
