Kindle Unlimited: Is this a deal of the day?

Kindle Unlimited: Is this a deal of the day?

I already took a look at the accidental announcement of Kindle Unlimited, Amazon's latest subscription service, yesterday. For a quick recap, Kindle Unlimited is a $10 monthly subscription for all-you-can-read e-books.

Today's Deal of the Day is a quick breakdown of what you're paying for with a Kindle Unlimited subscription.

Need an e-reader? $40 off Kindle Fire HD.

I didn't expect it to be launching just two days later! Today, I'm going to break down what you're paying for with a Kindle Unlimited subscription to hopefully let you decide whether or not Kindle Unlimited is - or isn't - a deal of the day.

The first thing I noticed on Kindle Unlimited was that hugely popular series titles like The Hunger Games,Harry Potter, and The Lord of the Rings are all available free to subscribers.

You'd expect these series to be available in any bookstore, but they're often constantly checked out of most libraries. I think what Amazon hopes to offer with Kindle Unlimited is the instant gratification of a bookstore for the price of buying a paperback book every month.

Would Kindle Unlimited be a deal for you? Well, that mostly depends on how much you're reading and what books you're hoping to read. If you spend more than $10 on books a month, then it might be worth trying out.

You can use Amazon's Kindle App to read e-books on most of your devices for free.
