Amazon Kindle Unlimited, also known as KU, is the “all you can eat” buffet of books for one fixed price. It’s like the Netflix for books, and similar to Netflix, it applies to all the books enrolled in Kindle Unlimited.
As with any program, there are pros and cons to us users, and here is how I see them.
Who doesn’t love all you can eat for one fixed price? I can read as many books as I want, for one low monthly fee. Even if I’m on vacation and devouring books like my favorite ice cream. Even if I have a three-day weekend with thunderstorms in the forecast, and I do nothing but sit by a fireplace and read every book I can. Still one fee! All included in that one low monthly fee!
Who doesn’t love predictable spending? I pay a known, fixed price and read as frequently as I want.
You don’t have access to 100% of the books available on Amazon. Some books do not participate in this program and thus are not available for borrowing in this program. You’d have to buy those books like you would any other.
That said, for me, the pros far outweigh the cons. If a book doesn’t participate, well, I was going to buy it anyway, and hey, in the meantime and after, I am getting all you can eat for my one fixed fee!
I hope this article helps you decide if KU’s right for you!
