Amazon has begun offering Kindle Unlimited, a new subscription service giving users “all you can eat” access to a selection ebooks for a flat monthly fee of $9.99.
The service will work similar to Netflix, where users pay a base monthly fee for unlimited access to a catalogue of content. Instead of binge-watching television series though, Kindle Unlimited allows users to binge-read novels, memoirs, and nonfiction works alike.
Over 600,000 titles will be available to users, including bestsellers such as The Hunger Games, Water for Elephants, the Harry Potter series, and Diary of a Wimpy Kid. Subscribers to Kindle Unlimited will also receive a free three-month subscription to Audible, giving them access to that services catalogue of audiobooks.
Kindle Unlimited is available today and can be accessed across all Kindle devices and via the Kindle reading apps for iPad, Android, Windows 8, iPhone, Windows Phone, BlackBerry, and Mac. Amazon is offering a free 30-day trial.
