Getting Started with Prime Reading

No Kindle? No problem! Read on any device, with Kindle apps for iOS and Android. Download the Kindle app, free, and find out more, here. Prime Reading allows borrowing of up to 10 titles at once. Unlike an analogue library, Prime Reading books don’t have a due date. The only time you would lose access to your borrowed titles is if your Prime membership itself expires or you cancel.

Bestsellers, Originals, and Kindle Singles in Prime Reading 

Exclusive short stories and other original works only available on Amazon, from much loved and best-selling authors in contemporary fiction like Alice Hoffman, Colm Toibin and Chimamanda Ngozi Adichie. Explore writing from exciting new voices and tight takes on history, science, self-help and tech, all part of your Prime membership.

Magazines in Prime Reading

Never miss an issue of your favorite magazine or newspaper – selected subscriptions available on Prime Reading mean you’ll access high-quality downloads of titles like Time, Cosmopolitan, Men’s Health, People, and many more, to enjoy at no extra cost (to a maximum of 3 at any time).

Audio books in Prime Reading

Thousands of Kindle books come with a professionally narrated Audible audiobook. With Whispersync for Voice, whenever you see “Kindle Unlimited with Narration,” switch seamlessly between reading and listening without ever losing your place.
