Amazon’s Kindle Unlimited, the subscription service that offers thousands of books, magazines, and audiobooks for $10 a month, is currently discounted for new subscribers in preparation for Amazon Prime Day, the retail giant’s massive annual shopping event scheduled for October 13 and 14.

New subscribers can get 50% off their first six months — that means you’ll pay $30 for six months of Kindle Unlimited instead of $60. 

Kindle Unlimited isn’t exclusive to Kindle and Amazon Fire tablets; you can access ebooks using the Kindle app on Android and iPhone, or read directly in your web browser using the Kindle Cloud Reader. The service also offers comic books and audiobooks along with a constantly changing library of magazines.

Amazon Prime subscribers will also be able to select two free ebooks from Amazon’s First Reads collection from October 1 until October 31. Books in the First Reads collection are upcoming releases that are published early on Kindle. Prime subscribers normally get one free Kindle ebook from the First Reads collection each month; Kindle Unlimited subscribers can access First Reads titles for free the month after they’re published.

Every Amazon shopper will also be eligible to receive a $5 credit when they spend $20 or more on ebooks.

Amazon’s latest Kindle deals are an early promotion for Amazon Prime Day, which will take place on October 13 and 14. Our Prime Day hub has all the details on Amazon’s annual shopping event.

How far should politicians be allowed to intervene in court cases? To monitor these issues as closely as we have in the past we need your support, so please consider donating to The Climax News Room.
