Kindle unlimited, is it worth it?
Jessica #review #e-book
I do not think so. How many books do you read a month? Are the books you read available? I read enough to make it worthwhile, but I do not find the books I want available.
No, unless you like to read a lot of romance books. It tends to be filled with those kinds of choices and not a lot of the new stuff.
From what I seen it’s not all romance
@Jessica no, but a heck of a lot of it is…
My mom uses Kindle Unlimited and I dont think she would survive without it! She LOVES it! and she doesnt read Romance, you can find alot of Murder Mysteries and Fantasy too.. It depends on how many books you read a month, you can rent 10 at a time, including series. My mom reads probably 25-30 books a month.. You could probably try a 30 day free trial forst and have a better idea of what works for you
Also the books you rent dont have to be returned the next month unless you plan to discontinue the service..
Just got the free trial today
I love it! I’ve found great psychological thrillers, mystery, romance, etc. I honestly panic when the monthly fee comes out, cuz I have to make sure it doesn’t get canceled for any reason
@Heather they have it where you can get a 6 month membership
I am your mother’s twin. I am 76 and I find so many books. I read a lot of British fiction too.
@Jessica thanks for the information, I’m going to check it out! ?
Not sure, but I’m doubting it. I went ahead and got that free 2 months groupon, and I’ve notice very few of what I want to read is KU. Plus it seems that unless it’s the current big title, large publishing houses don’t allow their titles on KU. You could always add all the titles you want to your amazon wish list and then make a tally of how many are KU and then get a pre-paid for a set of months you think you’ll need so you don’t have to commit to a monthly subscription.
I didn’t care for it. I didn’t like the selection and couldn’t find enough in any of the categories to make it worth keeping. I tried the free version and didn’t keep it for the whole free trial period.
I like having it. There are 3 people in my house who share it and it works out really well for us. Sometimes you have to dig through the titles in order to find something you want to read, but if you don’t mind that and you read a lot, it’s worth it.
It depends on your taste.
I tried it for a while, but I just didn’t find it worth it for myself, personally. Not with my budget as tight as it is. I found other more budget-friendly ways to get a lot of books for super cheap (waiting for free e-book promotions, library clearance sales, thrift stores, etc.). Maybe if I were retired and had no kids to distract me and had way more time to read, it would probably be worth it. Just not right now. 😉
Found some good stuff (Clovenhoof series, Circles in Hell series, Woman on the Orient Express…), so yeah!
In India, yes
I like it. I don’t like buying a book unless I’ve sampled the author. It’s great that you can return a book within 7 days but that’s not always enough time to read a book. I prefer having an unlimited amount of time to read and decider if I like an author. And then I’ll actually buy their books. I only wanna buy if I know I’ll read over and over again. Like Nalini Singh Guild Hunter and Darynda Jones Charley Davidson.
I don’t think so…depends what your genere is and how often you read…at my rate we just sticl with prime
What kind of deal do you get with prime on books?
Again it depends on your genere but have had mine go from 11.99 two days before release to 5.99 night of. You also get some free books you borrow
I didn’t like it. Its mostly full of self published books via Amazon’s CreateSpace. If you’re looking for new books from top publishers, you will be very disappointed.
Just cancelled mine
I never went for it because none of the books on my wish list were Kindle Unlimited. When factoring in the monthly cost, I figured it would be worth it to budget a maximum of that amount on books that I know I really do want. (and in the end, get to keep)
If you look at the titles offered in KU, examine your own reading habits and if you think you will like the books. It also is more like a library, because when you are done with the books you can return it and try something else. I already have a library card, so I personally am not the target demographic.
I️ love it
I love it!
How much is it?
I didn’t like it.
Yes it is
It seems to depend on what you’re looking for. They don’t have the latest books that come out or books by top publishers. Which is fine. It’s good for discovering less well-known authors that you might not otherwise have discovered. I didn’t think it was worth it for me personally. I went through all the different categories that I’m interested in and didn’t find many books that I wanted to read, so I cancelled mine. But someone else might see those books and think they’ve struck gold, lol. I say it’s at least worth trying it out with the free trial and seeing if you like it. If you don’t, just make sure to actually cancel it or they’ll start charging you for it once the free trial is over. 🙂
