Is kindle unlimited worth it?

My friend has it and absolutely loves it! My understanding is you pay a monthly fee to buy books “free” but when you cancel, you lose the books you bought
I have it so worth the money as there a lot of really good books and it’s unlimited so can read as many as you want and download up to ten books at a time x
It depends on what you like to read. The authors I prefer to read are not available so for me the answer is no. I pay an annual membership to a library and get to read all of the new releases from my favorite authors.
I got it for a month-long trial, but couldn’t find anything that I wanted to read! I cancelled it.
Not worth it.
If you’re a reader who goes through at least 4 books a month, yes. If you’re an author, avoid it like a disease.
As an author I would get less than a third of the royalties I would get from a normal purchase.?
I can read more than 4 books a month and avoid KU mostly because authors get more money from a purchase of the book. I enjoy helping indie authors.
@Kari Thank you for that!
I didn’t care for it so I went to http://scribd.com/ which is really good. I have so many good books by well known authors like Stephen King in my TBR list
I’m a pretty slow reader so I didn’t get it for a long time. Then it was on sale (Black Friday, i think!) and I invested. With the discount, it’s definitely been worth it!
I love it 🙂 I read tons of books on there
I love it and have found many, many books to read. Entire series in fact.
It depends on how you go into it. You’re not going to get the best sellers and the books are usually pretty cheap normally. My suggestion is to take advantage of the free trial and/or buy some books that are available on KU to get you into some of the genre. It can be hard to find books you may want to read,so download the kindle app and get notifications and you’ll see a lot of KU books. Tons of great books, you may have to go searching. You may love the books but not read as fast/as much to make it worth it. I also suggest maybe subscribing in chunks at first. Like maybe August – October and read all on KU then go to other books and then back to KU another time. That way it’s easier to get your moneys worth but you also read your other books
Ok, so I signed up for the 30 day free trial. I’m kinda bummed by the lack of selection – maybe I don’t know what I’m doing yet. I told them Psychology was one of my interests and 0 books or periodicals showed up.
I’ve noticed that sometimes it gets better after you’ve read a book and Amazon starts to actually track what you might be interested in.
Personally, I’m just that picky of a reader to know what I’m really into. (Versus what Amazon thinks I would like based on what I’ve read.)
