What is Kindle Unlimited? A Clear Explanation of Amazon's E-Book Subscription Service

In this article, we'll take a closer look at Kindle Unlimited, including how it works, how to get it, and what books are available. We'll also explore the Black Friday deal and Prime Reading, as well as answering some common questions, such as whether you can share Kindle Unlimited or cancel it at any time.

Kindle Unlimited Black Friday Deal

With Kindle Unlimited, you'll have access to over a million books, magazines, and audiobooks, making it the perfect time to catch up on your reading list. The promotion is available until Cyber Monday on 27 November, and can be cancelled at any time. However, if you don't cancel before the trial ends, you'll automatically be transferred onto the £9.49 per month tier. Don't miss out, sign up now and enjoy unlimited reading!


How Kindle Unlimited Works?

Kindle Unlimited is a subscription service launched in 2014 that gives you access to millions of eBooks, thousands of audiobooks, and select magazine subscriptions, including Good Housekeeping. You can access the service from any compatible device, including your phone or tablet with the Kindle app installed. You can borrow up to 10 titles at once, and once you're done reading, you can return them to loan more.


To borrow a title, simply look for the "Read for £0.00" button on eligible book pages on Amazon. Clicking this button will add the title to your list of borrowed titles, which will be available on all devices where you're logged in through the Kindle app. You can manage all the Kindle Unlimited titles you're borrowing within your Amazon account.


With Kindle Unlimited, you can read as much as you want, and there are no due dates for borrowed books. You pay a monthly subscription fee of £9.49, and you can cancel anytime. Kindle Unlimited works with all Kindle devices, as well as on your phone, computer, or tablet through the free Kindle app.


How to Get Kindle Unlimited

To sign up for Kindle Unlimited, head to the Kindle Store on the Amazon site. Click the "Join Kindle Unlimited" or "Start your free trial" button. You can access Kindle Unlimited on Kindle devices, Fire tablets, and the Kindle app on Android, iPhone, and iPad. You can also read on your computer.


What is Prime Reading?

Prime Reading is a benefit that comes with an Amazon Prime membership. It was launched in 2017 and gives Prime members access to a curated selection of around 1,000 popular books, magazines, and comics that are updated regularly. Unlike Kindle Unlimited, which is a separate subscription, Prime Reading is included in the cost of your Amazon Prime membership.


In addition to Prime Reading, an Amazon Prime membership also offers other benefits such as fast and free shipping on eligible items, access to Prime Video, Audible channels, and Prime Music, as well as exclusive deals on Amazon Prime Day.


To access Prime Reading, you can download the free Kindle app on your smartphone, tablet, or computer, or use a Kindle e-reader device. Once you have downloaded the app or logged into your device, you can browse the Prime Reading library and download any titles that interest you.


How much does Kindle Unlimited cost?

If you're an avid reader, Kindle Unlimited may be worth the monthly fee of £7.99. Currently, there are trial offers available such as the first two months for 99p or a 30-day free trial. Keep in mind that the subscription will renew at the regular monthly price after the trial period ends. Look for the "Read for Free" button on Kindle book pages to start reading.


What books are available on Kindle Unlimited?

While Kindle Unlimited offers a vast library of books, not all books are available on the service. Many mainstream books and best-sellers are not on Kindle Unlimited, as having a book appear on the service requires different licensing arrangements and the approval of the author. However, there are still over one million book titles, thousands of audiobooks, and popular magazines included in the Kindle Unlimited library.


Most of the books available on the service are self-published Amazon exclusives, making this a less attractive option if you prefer to read books from major publishers. Nonetheless, you can still find a great selection of titles from new authors across a range of genres, including classics, romance, self-help, and thriller. You can also borrow new releases from the Kindle Owners' Lending Library.


Some of the popular titles currently available on Kindle Unlimited include the whole Harry Potter series. With so many options to choose from, you are sure to find something that suits your reading preferences on Kindle Unlimited.


Can you share Kindle Unlimited?

To share Kindle Unlimited books, you will need to create an "Amazon Household" and add family members to it. Once added, you can share ebooks, audiobooks, apps, and games with them. However, only the main Kindle Unlimited account holder can initiate sharing of Kindle Unlimited titles. Keep in mind that sharing is only available for the same country's Amazon website.


How to Cancel Kindle Unlimited

If you find that you are not using your Kindle Unlimited subscription as much as you expected, you can cancel it at any time. To do this, you need to visit the Kindle Unlimited membership management page.


Once you're on the membership management page, locate the button labelled “Cancel Kindle Unlimited Membership”. Click on it, and follow the steps to confirm your cancellation. Your membership will remain active until the date of your next bill. After that, you will no longer have access to any content you borrowed via Unlimited.


It is important to note that if you have a prepaid (gift or bundle) Kindle Unlimited membership, you will not receive a partial refund for unused months.


Here are the steps to cancel your Kindle Unlimited subscription:

  1. Locate the button labelled “Cancel Kindle Unlimited Membership”.

  2. Click on the button and follow the steps to confirm your cancellation.

It's that simple! You can rejoin Kindle Unlimited at any time if you change your mind.
