Amazon has made a new service official today. It’s called Kindle Unlimited and it provides all-you-can-read access to 600,000 books in the retailer’s portfolio, and it also lets you listen to thousands of audiobooks.
All of this costs $9.99 per month, hence why many people are calling it a ‘Netflix for books’.
If you aren’t sure whether it’s a good fit for you, Amazon will give you a free 30-day trial to make up your mind. You should know that through Kindle Unlimited you don’t get access to the entirety of Amazon’s books, but some best sellers are included.
For example, you can read the Harry Potter series, The Hobbit and The Lord of the Rings trilogy, the Hunger Games trilogy, the Diary of a Wimpy Kid books, and Flash Boys.
If you sign up for Kindle Unlimited, you’ll also get three months of Audible membership, which nets you access to its full selection of audiobooks. After those pass, you’ll still be able to listen to audiobooks, but you’ll be limited to the “over 2,000″ titles in the Kindle Unlimited portfolio.
The Unlimited subscription features Whispersync for Voice, which lets you seamlessly switch between reading and listening, all without losing your place in the book.
