What suits you more Amazon Prime Reading or Kindle Unlimited?

Amazon reading services

The great Amazon is more than an online store to shop. The company of Jeff Bezos has expanded so much in recent years that through its platform it is also possible to listen to music in streaming (Spotify), watch movies and series (Netflix) and even read books for free.

Precisely for this last purpose, the firm has not only one but two services that allow reading a good amount of books as a “free bar”, which can often lead to confusion. What exactly does each of them offer? Is it the same if you sign up for one or the other? how much they cost?

Kindle

To try to get you out of all doubts, we will explain what Amazon Prime Reading and Kindle Unlimited consist of: what content they have available, what allows you to do each of these services and how to access their services. Go for it.

Amazon Prime Reading

This is the service that “gives you” in a certain way Amazon when you open an Amazon Prime account. And although the most famous of this subscription is the fact that with it the vast majority of shipping costs are free (including 1 Day Shipping), the truth is that paying it you also have free access to Prime Video, Amazon Music and to our service of interest today, Prime Reading.

What you will find here is a selection of hundred books in electronic format (e-book) that is updated periodically and which you can access from any device with the Kindle app (available for iOS and Android) and from a Kindle, of course.

Prime reading

You will find all kinds of genres (narrative, police, romantic, science fiction books, comics in English, etc.) that you can keep an eye on by entering the Department corresponding from the Amazon website (as long as you are Prime, eye):

  1. You enter Amazon.es and access with your data.
  2. Click on the icon on the left (next to the Amazon logo) and tap on «Books».
  3. Choose “Prime Reading»And you will see all the books available to read for free for being Prime.
  4. Choose the one you want and tap on «Read now» to read it at the moment, «Add to the library» or click on the image of the book, enter its file and send it to a device

Ready. You only have to enjoy it whenever and wherever you want.

Prime Reading key points

  • For whom it is: people who read with relative frequency and like to give new and different books a chance.
  • The best: Enter the Prime subscription so you enjoy the rest of the advantages: Music, Video, shipments, etc.
  • Worst: Its catalog is shorter than the one available in Kindle Unlimited.
  • Advice: You can subscribe a free month to Amazon Prime to try it and then unsubscribe, although you have to remember to do so before the 30 days expire so that they do not charge you the next.

Kindle Unlimited

It must have already been clear to you what exactly Prime Reading is and how it is accessed so it is the turn of Kindle Unlimited. This service is often confused with the aforementioned, and although it is true that the two ultimately offer the same experience, it has certain very important differences. The first one, and paramount, is that Unlimited works independently to the Amazon Prime subscription. You can have an account and not be able to access Kindle Unlimited or vice versa, since it is a service that is paid separately (9.99 euros per month).

Here again you will find a good amount of ebooks that you can access from any device with the dedicated Amazon app or from a Kindle device, but – here comes the second difference – far from the “hundreds” of titles that you can find in Prime Reading, here you go over a million books (which is said soon) available for your enjoyment.

Kindle Unlimited

Once you have paid for your Kindle Unlimited subscription, the steps to access the catalog are similar to Prime Reading:

  1. You enter Amazon.es and access with your data.
  2. Click on the icon on the left (next to the Amazon logo) and tap on «Books».
  3. Choose “Kindle Unlimited»And you will see all the books available to read without paying anything else.
  4. Choose the one you want and tap on «Read now» to read it at the moment, «Add to the library» or click on the image of the book, enter its file and send it to a device.

A Small difference that you will also find between the two services is when looking at the tab of a book. While with Prime Reading, you are only advised that you can read it for free when you are already Prime, with Kindle Unlimited always appears (pay or not the service) the notice that with this subscription it costs you 0 euros – in case you are already pointed, on the right you will see a message that is included in your account, in case you want to read it or send it to some of your equipment.

Kindle Unlimited

Kindle Unlimited key points

  • For whom it is: people read a lot (a lot), to which I compensate for a “free bar” of monthly books.
  • The best: The catalog of available books is immense.
  • Worst: It is paid.
  • Advice: You can subscribe a free month to Kindle Unlimited to try it and then unsubscribe, although you have to remember to do so before the 30 days expire so they don’t charge you the next.
