Kindle Unlimited launched by Amazon, includes “Potter”
For those of you with a Kindle, you might have been thinking that a subscription service for books would be something you would appreciate. Well, Amazon might have the answer for you, with their own “Netflix for books“ subscription service.
After launching Kindle Unlimited in America over the summer, Amazon has now launched the service in the UK. The service includes the full Harry Potter series, alongside other well-known children and young adult series, such as The Hunger Games and The Maze Runner.
The Guardian writes,
Amazon is launching its Kindle Unlimited ebooks subscription service in the UK, following its US debut in July.
The service, which costs £7.99 a month, offers unlimited access to a catalogue of more than 650,000 ebooks, as well as more than 2,000 audiobooks from Amazon’s Audible subsidiary.
The ebook equivalent of Spotify for music or Netflix for TV shows and films, Kindle Unlimited is being marketed with an emphasis on bestsellers: J.K. Rowling’s Harry Potter series[,] Suzanne Collins’[s] Hunger Games trilogy[,] 2013 Man Booker prize winner The Luminaries and more.
