Kindle Unlimited and Prime Reading are memberships that I have been using for awhile and decided why not chat about both. Kindle Unlimited is a membership with Amazon where you can read certain books for $9.99 a month. Prime Reading is a membership for Prime Members only that is free included with the Prime membership. The books allowed in both memberships can vary from different genres, self publishing to books from publishing houses and more.
I have had an on again and off again relationship with Kindle Unlimited if I must be honest. But, Prime Reading has been in my life for the past couple of years because I am a Prime member. There have been times where I have found gems with both memberships and other times where I feel that I don't use the memberships that often. But, considering that Kindle Unlimited has over 1 million titles and thousands of audiobooks and Prime Reading gives you new books to read every month they are many options for reading from either membership.
what books are included?
Kindle Unlimited has grown over the last couple of years where there have been super popular books such as Harry Potter, The Hunger Games, The Handmaid's Tale and more. There is a saying of Kindle Unlimited having millions of titles to choose from and they are correct. Kindle Unlimited varies as far as publishing and book releases go. I was about read books that are super popular as well as new writers that are released. I have enjoyed Kindle Unlimited but you definitely have to be on the lookout for books.
Prime Reading has over a thousand books that are released to Prime users with an emphasis on popular books or titles. I have not witnessed any self published books within their platform. The books can be in different genres from graphic novels to adult fiction. There is a great variety of books for Prime users to borrow in a month. I have had the chance to be recommended books from different walks of life and Prime has created their own book series as well to chose from.
what devices can be used?
As long as a reader has the Kindle app they can use Kindle Unlimited and/or Prime Reading.
limitations in the memberships?
I have enjoyed both memberships but there can be a few limitations but not many to me personally. Each membership only gives you a limit of 10 books to check out at a time. Also, if you end the memberships then the books will be revoked. There are so many books to choose from but you always to keep the memberships on the radar for new books because they are a lot to chose from. You have to search more for books because an email newsletter can only present so much to the members. There are more pros to cons to the memberships.
I plan on continuing to use both memberships because I believe that there are many pluses to using both. I enjoy the benefits of both memberships and think overtime it will continue to grow with the variety of books. I hope that you decide to try out each one with trials to understand if it is a great fit. Kindle Unlimited & Prime Reading can be used for any reader but you will have to try them out for yourself as see.
