Free Kindle Unlimited Books and Audiobooks with Kindle Unlimited

One of the absolute best things about Amazon for me is Kindle Unlimited. Kindle Unlimited is basically a free library full of over 1 million Kindle books and audio books I can choose from to check out on my Kindle. It’s like a library for your kindle full of some of the most popular books and audiobooks out there.

And don’t worry if you don’t have a Kindle. You can either buy a Kindle here OR just read your Kindle unlimited books on your phone, a tablet, or your computer with this Kindle reading app.

How Much is Kindle Unlimited?

Normally Kindle Unlimited costs .99/month and that .99/month gets you 10 books checked out at a time. Most best-selling Kindle books I’ve bought in the past few months have been at least , and I only get that one book. So if you read one book a month, the Kindle Unlimited cost is totally worth it. And if you read a lot of books like I do, it’s definitely worth it.

Kindle Unlimited Prime Day Sales

Right now Amazon is offering a special offer leading up to Amazon Prime Day where you can get 3 months for just $.99! Or purchase a 12 month paid membership plan for 33% off or a 24 month plan for 40% off! Click the banner below to sign up now!

How to Share Kindle Books with Others

Just like any other books you purchase for your Kindle, you can share Kindle Unlimited books with anyone else that has a device attached to your account. Everyone has access to the 10 books that are checked out in your downloaded library. Just make sure to not return a book if someone is in the middle of reading it!

To share books, all you need to do to share books is login to your Amazon account and go to your account page. From there, navigate to Content and Devices under Digital Devices > Settings. Under settings you can scroll down to Households and Family Settings. There you can add up to two adults and four children who are able to share books, apps, and games on your Kindle devices. You’ll also have to go through a quick setup process on the Kindle itself, but it’s pretty painless as long as you have the main person’s account info.
