If you are a UK Prime member and a bibliophile too, now is the time for you to do a happy dance! Why? you may ask. Well, Amazon is bringing the Prime Reading service to your nation.
If you are unaware of this service, let me tell you, Prime members get to enjoy unlimited reading from a rotating selection of books, magazines, comics and more, that too, at no additional cost. The ones who have not subscribed to Prime service can try Prime Reading with a 30-day free trial of Amazon Prime.
The service has already been available in the U.S. since September 2016 and features thousands of e-books, comics, and magazines. However, specific publications and books will rotate. Alessio Santarelli, EU Kindle Content Director, Amazon, said,
Prime members will love the range of books now available to them on any device, with everything from psychological thrillers, to business books, the latest travel guides and bestselling fiction.
So, for those, who have already subscribed to the annual Amazon Prime service, can access the gazillions of books on their Kindle devices, Kindle Fire, and Kindle mobile apps. This, however, is not the first time that the e-commerce giant is combining Kindle’s offerings with Prime. It lets the subscribers borrow a book each month, for free, with the Kindle Owners’ Lending Library.
The library includes titles like Harry Potter and the Philosopher’s Stone, Star Wars comics, and books from Man Booker Prize shortlisted authors including Jeanette Winterson, Stephen Covey, Graeme Macrae Burnet, Annabel Karmel, Mark Edwards, Michael Lewis. Prime Library also offers a rotating selection of recent, full issues of top magazines such as Glamour, The Week, Red, BBC Gardeners’ World, and more.
Amazon is focused on luring in more customers to subscribe to their service. Last week, the company had given another incentive to the citizens by announcing a series of live music gigs in the nation, with tickets on sale exclusively to Prime members.
