The selection on Kindle Unlimited doesn’t seem to be the greatest. There are a lot of Indie publishers (not that there's anything wrong with that!) but you don't see a lot of main stream publishers (hello, Avon!) There are still a lot of gems, they're just sometimes pretty well hidden in the pile of… I don't want to say "poorly edited self-published trash," so pretend I said just that but in much nicer terms. :)
Kindle Unlimited has a price point of
$9.95 a month, most of the ebooks available on Kindle Unlimited have a purchase
price of $0.00-$2.99. So unless you're reading 3+ of the higher price point
books each month, this may not be worth your time. It's nice that you can "borrow"
up to 10 books at a time, and if you get a dud you can just return it and check
out another one, but unless you're a super reader this might not be the most
cost effective product for you.
However, if you
subscribe to Kindle Unlimited, you can also get the Audible Romance Package for
the lower price point of $6.95/month (normally $14.95/month unless you are an
Audible Gold/Platinum member). So if want to subscribe to the Audible Romance
Package and are not an Audible Gold/Platinum member, it might make sense to
subscribe to both Kindle Unlimited and Audible Romance Package for a combined
total of $16.90. (Basically you get the Audible Romance Package and then Kindle
Unlimited for $2, which IS totally worth it.)
Amazon has a deal on Kindle Unlimited this week for Cyber Monday Deals Week. They don't specify when
the sale ends, so check it out soon! You can also check the box to gift a year
(or two years!) of Kindle Unlimited to a friend, so think about if this might
be a great gift for your favorite book-lover!
12 months for $80.32
(33% discount, regularly $119.88) or
24 months for
$143.86 (40% discount, regularly $239.76)
You can also try Kindle Unlimited for a one month free trial (if you've never tried it before). The Audible Romance Package also has a free one month trial available, which I just signed up for, so expect a review of that in about a month!
Do you have any bookish subscriptions you participate in? How do you like them? Are they worth it?
