“Kindleunlimited” subscription service is rumored.
Rumor from a leaked Amazon site indicates that a launch of “Kindle Unlimited”, which is essentially a Netflix for books subscription service with over a half million titles, is on the horizon.
If the Rumors are correct for $9.99 a month you will have to access over 500,000 ebooks and thousands of audiobooks.
It is not known whether the service will be available worldwide, or only in the US and the UK.
In a promotional video posted on YouTube (visible here) the narrator says:
Kindle Unlimited gives you the freedom to explore over 600,000 titles and thousands of audiobooks in the palm of your hand. Enjoy unlimited reading and unlimited listening on any device for $9.99 a month.Apparently, users can sign up for a 30-day trial, in the same way that consumers can try Amazon Prime. The subscription service will expand on Amazon’s Prime Lending Library, which allows users to loan one book a month from hundreds of thousands of titles. Titles include those from the New York Times Best Sellers list and the full Harry Potter series. The service is available on Amazon’s Kindle e-readers as well as the Kindle App which can be used on Android and Apple smartphones and tablets.
