Well friends … we weren’t dreaming when we heard rumors of Amazon’s Kindle Unlimited. The full site launched today offering a 30-day free trial and access to more than 600,000 books and thousands of audiobooks on any device (from Android tablets and smartphones to iPhone and iPads).
Some noteable offerings:
- 600,000 titles, including some popular series like Hunger Games, Lord of the Rings, Harry Potter and Diary of a Wimpy Kid.
- Thousands of free audiobooks + a separate 3-month Audible subscription
- Only available to US customers for now.
- You don’t need a Kindle to use the app. You can download the app for free on any device: Amazon.com – Read eBooks using the FREE Kindle Reading App on Most Devices
We’ll start using it this week and write a full review soon. Immediately we don’t see too many differences from Oyster – one of Books for Her’s favorite books services. Price is essentially the same – based on Amazon’s information; Kindle Unlimited seem to have more selection. Like Oyster, Kindle Unlimited is offering a month free, but Oyster also offers a $15 referral bonus per person you sign up. More to come! Let us know if you try it out.
