Amazon Prime Membership for Avid Readers

There are over 1.3 million titles listed in Kindle Owners’ Lending Library - not only books but also newspapers and magazines - in print and digital format.  How can readers benefit from these Prime advantages?

  • Borrowing one book per month from the huge Kindle Owners’ Lending Library (roughly 25 percent of all Kindle books).  However, there is no due date, you can keep one title as long as you want.  You need to own an Amazon device – for example, either a Kindle e-reader or a Fire tablet.
  • Prime Reading of over 1,000 items on a book selection which is being frequently refreshed with new titles. Subscribers can read for free the top-selling Kindle books and comic books.  Additionally, there is free access to premium magazines, from National Geographic to People, to Coastal Living, to Entrepreneur, to Golf, to Popular Science, to Sports Illustrated.
  • Free two-day shipping of print books plus millions of items from the Amazon online store.  There are over 14.5 million Prime-eligible books in Amazon store.  Prime members can get the Prime-eligible book often delivered the same day - if they live in certain areas.
  • Getting one “Kindle First” ebook a month, at no extra cost.  Amazon editors select a couple of books that are exclusively published for Kindle.  The list is being refreshed at the beginning of each month.  What’s special about Kindle First is that the featured books are available ahead of their official release dates.
  • Getting free access to Audible Channels.  Audible Channels is a carefully curated selection of original programs, lectures, and audio editions of articles and news from most popular and opinion-forming sources such as The Wall Street Journal, The New York Times, or the Harvard Business Review among others.
