Is Kindle Unlimited worth it?

Kindle Unlimited is perfect for avid readers. If you often finish books quickly or find yourself reading multiple books at once, you should try out the subscription. Once you experience Kindle Unlimited’s extensive selection and ease of borrowing, it’s hard to go back.

But don't simply take our word for it. Here's what some of our current members say:

“As an avid reader, being able to access as many books as KU has available for one monthly price is a cheaper option than having to purchase each book individually.”—Christina

“I would never be able to afford reading so many books if not for KU. It also allows trying new authors and series. Since I don't need to pay extra, I'm willing to try books/authors I would normally hesitate to spend money on”—Liya
