Amazon is dipping its giant toe into the book subscription model with the recently unveiled Amazon Unlimited program. Claiming to offer book lovers access to over 600,000 books and thousands of audio books, this Netflix-for-books plan is priced at $9.99 per month.
You can view the nitty-gritty here, but for me, the most pressing question is “How many books can I borrow?” The answer:
You can keep up to ten books at a time and there are no due dates.
Amazon further notes that you can read your Kindle Unlimited books on any Kindle device or by using the free Kindle reading apps.
Amazon is offering a free 30-day trial if you want to check it out (note that the program is currently only available to United States customers).
I’m thinking about giving it a test drive, but I’m not sure that at $10 a month, this will be a keeper for me. What about you?
