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 its own “Netflix for books“ subscription service.
After launching Kindle Unlimited in the United States over the summer, Amazon has now launched the service in the United Kingdom. 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 the following:
Amazon is launching its Kindle Unlimited e[-]books 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 e[-]books, as well as more than 2,000 audiobooks from Amazon’s Audible subsidiary.
The e[-]book equivalent of Spotify for music or Netflix for TV shows and films, Kindle Unlimited is being marketed with an emphasis on best[-]sellers: J.K. Rowling’s Harry Potter series, Suzanne Collins’ Hunger Games trilogy, 2013 Man Booker prize winner The Luminaries and more.
