Amazon Announces Kindle Unlimited

Amazon has officially announced Kindle Unlimited, a $9.99 all you can read monthly ebook subscription. This was leaked earlier in the week, but now we have more details on this ebook and audiobook service!

The killer feature here that could hurt other subscription ebook services is Whispersync for Voice. Amazon is offering it on compatible titles, meaning you can start reading the ebook, switch to the audio book, and pick back up in the ebook version. Adding Whispersync for Voice to a book typically adds $3-5, so if you use that service more than once it’s worth looking at Kindle Unlimited’s selection!

Of course, selection is the big question mark here. Amazon says there are 600,000 titles so far, but that’s only a quarter of what Amazon sells in overall Kindle titles. Luckily, Amazon is offering a free 30 day trial, so if you aren’t sure if the library will work for you, give it a shot risk free!
