For a while now I’ve been looking at the Kindle Unlimited section of Amazon, but I really didn’t want to pay more on top of my Prime membership. Now they’ve came out with Prime Reading* which gives access to books, comics and magazines. Prime Reading is free for all current Prime members as well as any new members.
The book selection is a lot smaller than that of Kindle Unlimited, but there’s still plenty of books of interest. A lot of the books also seem to be a first in the series. So if you want to read a series you get a free first book to see if you like it. I went through some of the options and second books don’t seem to be available for prime, but are through unlimited. So Prime Reading must be Amazon’s way to get people to sign up to Unlimited through a ‘taster’.
I’m not fully sure how you would get your book into the ‘Prime Reading’ area, but I think it’s a fantastic way for authors and publishers to introduce people to a series. So just looking through now, I’ve added multiple books to my TBR which I will probably buy the rest of the series if I like them.
Here are some of my choices:
Fantasy and Sci-Fi
Ink Mage* by Victor Gischler
The Gender Game* by Bella Forrest
Enchantress* by James Maxwell
Spirit Legacy* by E.E Holmes
Atopia Chronicles* by Matthew Mather
The Paper Magician* by Charlie N. Holmberg
