Never Run Out of Great Stuff to Read with Kindle Unlimited
Avid Readers who join Amazon’s Kindle Unlimited will never run out of great stuff to read when they want it. Those readers can thank all the self-published authors who provide their books by signing up for Amazon’s KDP Select program. Speaking as an author who is also a member of KDP Select; this program benefits both the author and the reader, and of course, all the people at Amazon.
Benefit to Readers
Kindle Unlimited is specifically designed for Readers who enjoy having a wide range of titles to browse through and sample. Members pay a flat monthly rate of $9.95 and during that month, they can read whatever they want for as long as they want to. No matter what your reading taste, pleasure, or purpose is, there are thousands and thousands of awesome titles to choose from.
Benefit to Authors
Many authors who are new to self-publishing often worry about making a decision to sign up for KDP Select. Amazon’s KDP Select program requires that their book be exclusive to KDP for 90 days. Some authors wonder if it might make more sense to allow their newly published title to remain non-exclusive. But those authors have yet to discover the benefits of that can come from having their books included in Kindle Unlimited. Not only do the books in the KDP Select program ultimately get much more exposure, but they also earn additional royalty incentives. So besides the money authors make from book sales, Kindle Unlimited allows them to earn payments that result from pages being read from their books. If you’re an author, clearly, these benefits are worth checking into the KDP Select program and seeing if it’s right for you.
