Amazon Prime rolls out free books and magazines

Amazon Prime rolls out free books and magazines
PRI.org

Amazon treats their Prime members really well. With a choice of a $99 annual membership cost or a monthly fee of  $10.99, the online retailer offers early access to deals, free two-day shipping, unlimited streaming of videos and music, and so many other perks. There was even a glitch in their algorithms that showed lower prices for members versus non-members.

They keep coming up with new ways to make the service better. They recently launched Amazon Prints, which is a photo print service and Twitch Prime, which is for video game discounts. They just added a new benefit and bookworms are going to love it!

Amazon's Prime Reading is a book lover's dream. Prime members will have unlimited access to over 1,000 books, comics, magazines and Kindle singles. It will work similarly to their video streaming service where the selections rotate. So if a book you want to read isn't there now, it may become available in a couple months.

You don't need to buy a Kindle, these selections can be read on any device. You just need to download the free Kindle app, which is available for Apple and Android users. With the app, you can also check out over 4 million eBooks (some of which are free), use the built-in dictionary to look up words while you read, and sample books before you buy them.
