I was looking into Kindle Unlimited recently and thought it might be useful to do a post on the better-known titles in the catalog. If you’re not familiar with it, Kindle Unlimited gives you unlimited access to over a million books. The catch is that it’s limited to selected titles, many of which may be a little obscure. The good news is, there’s actually a number of better-known books buried in there. (And of course, I assume many of the lesser known ones may be hidden gems as well.)
How it Works: Sign up for the free trial period. Cancel or continue subscribing for $9.99 (plus tax) per month after that. You do not need a Prime subscription to sign up for Kindle Unlimited. You can borrow up to 10 titles at a time.
If you’re already subscribed or thinking about it, here are some of the best Kindle Unlimited offerings, focusing mainly on books that you may have heard of (links are Amazon affiliate links).
Out of these books, I’d say Slaughterhouse-Five by Kurt Vonnegut and the Harry Potter books are probably my favorites. Handmaid’s Tale is of course great, but I actually prefer a lot of Atwood’s other works over that one. Song of Achilles (by Madeline Miller who also wrote Circe) is a book that I’m curious about but reading it hasn’t been a priority for me.
Hope this help you to get more out of your Kindle Unlimited subscription! Or, learn more about the program or get a free trial here (no Prime subscription needed).
Will you be reading any of these books? Drop me a line if there’s anything on Kindle Unlimited you’d recommend, and (of course) happy reading!
