Would you pay a monthly fee for an unlimited library of eBooks, set up much like the video streaming service Netflix? Amazon is willing to bet you will. Given that few services of its type exist, Amazon’s Kindle Unlimited is sure to make a literary splash.
A test page briefly appeared on Amazon’s website advertised the service for $9.99 a month, giving users access to over 600,000 titles. These would include popular titles such as The Life of Pi and The Hunger Games. The page has since been removed.
The now-removed page indicated the service would be available on “any device,” so bookworms needn’t race to the store to buy a Kindle just yet.
