But what is Kindle Unlimited?

“Kindle Unlimited is a new service that allows you to read as much as you want, choosing from over 700,000 titles and thousands of audiobooks. Freely explore new authors, books, and genres from mysteries and romance to sci-fi and more. You can read on any device. It’s available for $9.99 a month and you can cancel anytime.”

That’s Amazon’s official answer. I picked it up myself, and I’ve really enjoyed it. For ten bucks a month, I get to read as many of their books as I want. Since I read a fair amount of books, this has helped out my book buying budget significantly. I’m still limited by the Kindle selection (as authors have to opt in to the service) but I’ve read more this month because I didn’t have to stop and think, “Will my husband freak out at another $2.99 book charge this week?”

So, from the reader’s side of things, you pay ten bucks and you get to check out ten books at a time. You don’t get to keep them, but you can read them as many times as you want as long as the book is enrolled in the Kindle Unlimited program. It is kind of like a paid library with the option to buy if you want.
