Amazon Prime Reading: How to Get Free Reading

Do you enjoy reading but don't have the budget to buy new books every month? Then borrow some online. With Amazon Prime Reading you have access to a huge selection of books, magazines and comics. Here you can find out how you can use the lending library, what you need for it and why a Prime membership is worthwhile.

Amazon Prime Reading: what is it anyway?

Amazon Prime offers you a number of advantages: Free next-day delivery, exclusive early access to deals, as well as loads of films, series and music. Prime Reading is another component of Prime membership. With that you can hundreds of eBooks, e-magazines and comics discover and read digitally. The selection changes regularly. You can borrow titles from a variety of genres, including nonfiction, novels, thrillers, and children's books.

The good thing about Amazon Prime Reading is that you can't just borrow the books and magazines individually and for a limited time. It is possible for you up to ten tracks at the same time to load and keep them indefinitely. You don't have to return them until you've reached the maximum number of loan books and magazines and want to load something new.

You need that for free reading fun

Amazon Prime Reading itself is free. However, the following requirements apply to use:

1. Prime membership

Amazon Prime Membership - Is It Worth It?

Only Amazon Prime members have access to the lending library. For Prime membership you pay 69 euros annually or 7.99 euros a month. The fee is lower for students: Here you only have to pay 34 euros per year. As described above, you not only get access to the large number of eBooks and eMagazines, but also benefit from the other Amazon Prime advantages. If you are still unsure about a membership, you can test the offer for 30 days free of charge thanks to the trial subscription.

2. Free Kindle Reading App

Don't worry, you don't have to buy a new product to use Amazon Prime Reading. You don't need a Kindle device, as was the case with the former Kindle lending library. With the help of the free Kindle reading app, you can read the borrowed content on Kindle devices as well as on all other devices. The app is available for iOS and Android. So you can always read your favorite books and magazines - wherever and whenever you want.

Amazon Prime Reading lets you read loads of books for free. We'll tell you how it works.

This is how the Amazon Prime Lending Library works

Using Prime Reading is straightforward. With the Prime membership in the Amazon shop, you have a large selection of books, magazines and comics at your disposal. Just search for the term "Prime Reading" and the whole world of the Amazon Prime Lending Library will open up to you. Now you can easily choose your favorite reading with a click of the mouse.

Whether you prefer to read non-fiction, romances, thrillers or fantasy books, the Prime Reading range has something for every taste. In principle, Prime Reading works like a reading flat rate. The only restriction: you can only borrow ten books or magazines at the same time. If you want to borrow another eBook, you have to return one first.

Once you have decided on a book, magazine or comic, you have various options for reading the content digitally. If you have an Amazon Kindle, you can easily access all of your titles from there. Otherwise, you can also do this wonderfully with the Kindle reading app. If you don't want to use either of these, you still have the option of using Prime Reading via the browser. There you just log in with your Prime account and you can continue reading all eBooks and magazines as usual.
