I admit… when I first heard of Kindle Unlimited, my first thought was, “I can get the same thing for free. It’s called my library.” However when I really investigated it – and talked to a few authors – I realized it’s not the same thing at all. For starters, many independently-published authors have their books available on Kindle Unlimited but are probably not in my library system. Second, authors whose books are part of the Kindle Unlimited program get paid royalties by the pages read. Which can often generate more revenue for them than royalties from outright purchases.
If you’re on the fence like I was, you can sign up for a FREE Kindle Unlimited 30-day trial and decide for yourself whether it’s of any benefit to you. I personally love it because it gives me a way to support authors while still saving money.

Wondering what kind of books are available on Kindle Unlimited? Here’s a hefty sampling of books & authors I enjoy reading!
Click on the book cover to go to that book’s Amazon page.
And about a bazillion more titles! I can’t possibly cover them all here. You can browse more here.
If you read about a book a month, this may not save you a lot of money. But if you read closer to one a week? Your KU membership will pay for itself in the money you’re saving.
