New Prime Benefit – Prime Reading


Amazon has added a new benefit for Amazon Prime members. Prime Reading is a light version of Kindle Unlimited. Prime members can now read up to 10 books, magazines, short stories or children’s books at once. Prime Reading only has just over 1000 book too choose from (compared to 1.4 million books in Kindle Unlimited).

Despite the small number of books, there are a number of books that are worth reading: The Man in the High Castle by Philip K Dick, 5 Love Languages by Gary Chapman, The Hobbit by JRR Tolkien, Harry Potter and the Sorcerer’s Stone, The Essential Calvin and Hobbes, and a number of Lonely Planet travel guides.

Prime Reading isn’t a reason to get Amazon Prime, but it is a nice addition to the list of benefits.

I assume it is to promote Prime Reading. But Amazon Prime members can get $30 off a basic touch kindle ($49), Paperwhite ($99) or $50 off a Kindle Voyage ($149).

You can also get the kid’s kindle bundle for $70 (A basic touch kindle, a case and a 2 year warranty)
