Love reading books and buy at least one book a month? then it’s for you. Amazon India has launched Kindle Unlimited subscription service in India, with an introductory price starting at Rs 99 for a month.
Amazon India Kindle Unlimited offers book lovers a gateway to explore over one million titles which include some of the best sellers from Indian authors and international authors like Amish’s The Immortals of Meluha, Chetan Bhagat’s Half girlfriend, Two states, One night at a call centre and Making India Awesome, Harry Potter series and more. It also includes some Kindle exclusive books like Vikram Sathaye’s – How Sachin Destroyed My Life, spiritual titles by Deepak Chopra and more.
One can freely read books across genres of literature, fiction, health, productivity, business and economics, biographies, children books and many more. If you are a little bit lazy or just started reading up books, you can choose from hundreds of books that are 100 pages or less.
- Over one million books to choose from
- Popular titles from Indian & International authors
- Works on any device with Kindle reading app
- Hundreds of books that are 100 pages or less
- Low pricing starting at Rs 199 per month (when compared to $9.99 per month in Amazon US)
One can access the books on any Kindle devices and if you don’t own one, you can make it up with the Kindle reading apps for iPhone, iPad, Android tablets and smartphone, PC and Mac. It also brings popular features like Whispersync, Popular Highlights, X-Ray, and customer reviews.
When opting for the service, you need to know that, only 10 books can be “borrowed” at a time (with Kindle Unlimited you are not actually buying any books) and if you need more books to read, then need to return one to borrow another. Another problem is that you won’t find too many bestsellers or popular books in the collection, like the Dan Brown’s Inferno, Ashwin Sanghi’s Chanakya’s Chant. Books from major publishers like Hachette, MacMillan, Simon & Schuster, HarperCollins, and Penguin are not included. Also, once you cancel the Kindle Unlimited subscription, all books from your collection will be removed.
- You are not buying the books, you are borrowing it
- 10 books can be borrowed at a time
- Popular books and publishers are missing from Kindle Unlimited
- Books are removed from your account/app once subscription ends
On to the pricing, as an introductory offer Amazon India is offering the first-month subscription to Kindle Unlimited for Rs 99 so that you can try it before continuing. After the first month, the price for one month Kindle Unlimited subscription starts at Rs 199 per month. One can also sign up for six months subscription for Rs 999 and 12 months for Rs 1799.
