Amazon, why you do me like this? Not two whole days ago I signed up for Scribd, the subscription-based ebook service that lets you read unlimited books as long you’re a paying member, and now Amazon has launched their subscription reading service: Kindle Unlimited.
Like I said, I’ve only been a Scribd subscriber for a few days, but I can already see the value in these types of services, especially if you’re a voracious reader. Those who want to try out Amazon’s new service can do so with a free 30-day trial, though for now the service is only available in the United States.
Between Netflix and Kindle Unlimited, may you never want for content again.
Our own Michael Kwan is a Kindle publisher and as such received an email encouraging him to enroll his book in the Kindle Unlimited service. If an author’s book is accessed and read past 10%, they’ll get a cut of the KDP Select global fund. Amazon also suggests that enrolling your book will increase your exposure, maximize your sales potential, etc, etc. You can read the full email message below.
