Offering over 5 million eBooks in the United States alone, Amazon is by far the largest electronic book publisher in the world. It doesn’t matter whether you’re an avid reader of self-help non-fiction, a romance novel fanatic, a sci-fi obsessed geek, or a self-taught coder trying to master a popular programming language—Amazon has something for everyone.
Best of all, Amazon’s bookstore is essentially a massive, virtual all-you-can-eat buffet for all Kindle Unlimited subscribers. If you have an Amazon account, you can apply for a 30-day free Kindle Unlimited trial and instantly enjoy over 1.5 million books, thousands of audiobooks, and many popular magazines and newspapers.
How to Apply for Your 30-Day Free Kindle Unlimited Trial
There’re a few requirements you must meet to sign up for the free trial. First, you need a valid Amazon account with a working credit card attached to it. Anyone who has ever made a purchase on Amazon most likely meets this requirement.
Unfortunately, Kindle Unlimited isn’t available from all countries. The service was initially addressed to U.S. customers only, but it has since then also become available to customers from the United Kingdom, Canada, Germany, France, Italy, Spain, Brazil, Mexico, India, Japan, and Australia. Hopefully, Amazon will add more countries soon.
How to Find the Best Kindle Unlimited Books
Amazon has made it simple for Kindle Unlimited customers to find Kindle Unlimited eligible books. When you visit the Kindle Store, you’ll see a small box with “Kindle Unlimited Eligible” right next to it. Tick the box, and you’ll be presented with a long list of books that you can read for free.
Understandably, selecting a single book from a collection of over a million can be a daunting task. Amazon knows this, providing you with several ways how to refine the results and quickly find what you’re looking for. For example, you can display only those books which were released in the last 90 days and rated 4 stars or higher. This gives you over 21,000 results, which you can further sort by publication date or average customer review.
How to Read Kindle Unlimited Books on Your PC
There’re two ways how PC users can read Kindle Unlimited books. The traditional method involves downloading and installing the Kindle for PC application. Unless you have administrator rights on the computer, this method might not work for you.
In that case, Kindle Cloud Reader is a fantastic alternative that you can use from any modern web browser. It can operate entirely online, or you may choose to install its browser extension, which adds support for offline reading.
