Amazon has now launched its Kindle Unlimited service in the UK allowing readers to enjoy unlimited books for a monthly fee of £7.99.
Kindle Unlimited subscribers have access to over 650,000 books including the Harry Potter series, the Hunger Games trilogy, The Life of Pi, Man Booker prize winner The Luminaries and more.
The Kindle Unlimited service launched in the US in July so expect any kinks to already be ironed out. That means you'll be able to use Whispersync for Voice to jump between audiobooks and the written version across your devices. So while you could be listening to a book in the car, streamed from your mobile, you can continue reading it on your Kindle from where you left off. Probably best to stop driving first.
If the thought of having to read a certain number of books a month in order to get your money's worth isn't attractive, Amazon is offering a free trial. The trail will last 30-days and offers the full Unlimited service with access to all titles available.
Once you've subscribed online any book that is eligible for the service will have the Kindle Unlimited logo on it. You simply select it, choose "Read for £0.00" and away you go.
Jorrit Van der Meulen, vice president of Kindle EU said: "With unlimited access to hundreds of thousands of titles, Kindle Unlimited offers by far the simplest and most cost-effective way to explore and discover eBooks and audiobooks together, and you can even switch from reading to listening without losing your place."
