Reading on the Cheap

Initially, I was going to post a link to the Cyber Monday sale on Kindle Unlimited, figuring that maybe some of you are so fed up with the emails that you’re just deleting them all without looking. But the more I thought about it, the more I realized it was important for me to talk about what I’m getting out of KU myself.

With a Kindle Unlimited subscription, you can check out as many as 10 books at a time from a library of the books that are enrolled in the program. Is every book available? No, especially not in M/M. This is because Amazon demands exclusivity from smaller publishers to participate in the program, and many of us prefer to have our titles available more widely available.

So, if you prefer to read primarily M/M, it’s best to look at whether you would find enough titles you’re interested in to make the subscription fee worth your while.

I tend to read more broadly. I read a lot of urban fantasy and thrillers. So, for me, Kindle Unlimited is a big deal. A few things I’ve read and enjoyed include:


The Pines

The Paper Magician
These were all Whispersynch titles, which meant I could flow back and forth between reading them and playing them as audios. I absolutely love this flexibility.

And as a publisher, I placed some of my ebook titles on Kindle unlimited to test the waters.

The Starving Years

Hue, Tint and Shade

I'm a slow reader. I've subscribed to ebook services before and never felt I was getting my $8-$10 worth out of the deal every month. But KU has enough variety and format to actually increase the amount of fiction I enjoy and I easily get my money's worth, and more.

As far as I know, this deal—up to 40% off—is only available in the United States, and only today. Check it out here.
