Does anyone use Kindle unlimited?
Kala #questionnaire #e-book
I did for a minute but i prefer actual books.
I did. It’s worth it if you read more than one or two books a month.
I read a lot of books in a month.
totally worth it.
Sure do! Love it!!
I do scribd instead
@Cherron I like Scribd also ?
Yep love it
I tried. It didn’t work. I literally did not get a single book I ordered. Not a one of them ever appeared on my Kindle. When I contacted Amazon about it, they were less than useless.
Seriously, . . . there are confirmation buttons, . . . waaaaaay off to the side, . . . as in “not on your screen”, . . . that need to be clicked. Otherwise, . . . the book won’t download. ?
@James Amazon’s so called “help desk” leaves much to be desired. Almost without exception their operators don’t speak English as a first language. Well meaning, but truly frustrating experience every time I’ve used it. Then, post-bad conversation, they right away send you all of these pre-written, computer generated responses in perfect English detailing how YOU can follow up on your original complaint to get a real answer to your question. Irritating… especially when you’ve been one of their best customers for over 15 years
That’s a shame! I’ve had two major issues in the past two months and they walked me right through the steps on the phone and got my device working! They were absolutely amazing.
Yup I really like it
Yes I love it! I also love Kindle Firsts, I’ve been able to find some excellent books.
Yes. I did. For about a year. Kindle Unlimited showcases author’s that have agreed to give Amazon Exclusive rights to market, sell and distribute anything they write. If you’re an author who is willing to sell your books on Amazon but also want to retain the right to sell them through Barnes & Noble, Simon and Schuster, etc. then you cannot sell them in Kindle Unlimited. Therefore Kindle Unlimited ends up showcasing either of three kinds of authors: 1. Authors that started their careers through exclusive Amazon contracts and “hit it big”, making it to The New York Times best seller list selling through Amazon alone 2. Newer, younger “up and coming” authors who’s books typically have, say, less than 1,000 reviews per book 3. Authors that have retired from their primary careers as lawyers, scientists, doctors, etc. and have taken up story writing as secondary careers (Scott Turrow types)
I was wondering about which books were available and why.. thanks for the info!
@Matischa you know what? I didn’t know for the longest time either. I happened to run across an article recently that explained it for me.
@John it makes sense! Is that why you cancelled?
@Matischa not exactly. I started realizing that since I will not be able to retire for another seven or eight years that my time was a limited resource. This being the case it made more sense for me to start with more proven authors and books that I knew I was going to enjoy. But I LOVE discovering new authors too. Once I have the extra time I will be rejoining the KINDLE UNLIMITED program! ?
Hope this helps. ?
No I only use it when there’s a free promotion
I tried it but found it didn’t have any books I liked.
Somebody is using KU. Around 65% of my royalties come from KU Page Reads, so I’m a huge believer in its value to writers. I’m also a subscriber and thoroughly enjoy the service.
Yes!! I love it!!!
Not any more. Seemed like all it had were bargain books that never quite made it. Had Audible, also, but getting only one per month for $15 wasn’t keeping up, even with exchanges, which had to happen via chat windows (like pulling teeth). Having much better luck with online libraries (free or nearly free!) and Scribd for $9/mo. Best bargain I’ve found all month was a $27/year subscription to Fairfax County, Virginia’s online library using Libby/Overdrive. https://fcplcat.fairfaxcounty.gov/uhtbin/cgisirsi/0/0/0/122/2015
Check out their selection: https://fairfax.overdrive.com/
Yes I do and I love it
No…I didn’t find enough I was interested in to make it worth the money.
Yes. There are some great unknowns out there and kindle unlimited gives you a lot of those books. It depends on how much you read a month. Your public library has books for free.
Yes. I’m a Cozy Mystery reader and there are great ones on there. I’ve found a few fantasies that were pretty good. Other than that, I wouldn’t have it.
Yes, love it.
No. You can get any book you want to read from libraries.
Yes i do
I do. It was a hard adjustment reading books on a tablet, For me. I am old school , And love the feel of a book. I don’t read much on a tablet, but I have started to enjoy some of the stories that I have found on unlimited . I would never have read them had I not had kindle unlimited .
