🔴🔥Have you ever subscribed to Kindle Unlimited? If so, what are your thoughts? Would you recommend it or not?
Take a look at this other video where I cover another Amazon feature:
Hi Dale I am looking at getting a kindle for my wife. The offer from Amazon has a 3 month unlimited for free, then they start charging. So my questions are: Are the books really on your kindle? Meaning when I buy a book, I have that forever. With the unlimited, do I get to keep that book? You mentioned I am just borrowing so I am guessing no, I am just being lent the book from Amazon. Which leads me to my next question. If I cancel the membership, are any of the 10 books on my kindle removed? I am thinking yes? Thanks and sorry for probably answering my own questions with your obvious video :)
I had the Kindle app on a windows tablet (HP) and on an android tablet (Insignia, maybe part of the problem). The app on the windows tablet worked great until "they" updated, upgraded, or whatever, it to a newer version. It was clunky, slow to load, if at all, bookmarks didn't work properly, pages wouldn't turn and then all of sudden, would turn 3 or more pages all at once. Almost unusable. Same story for the android tablet.
I decided to buy a Kindle tablet, thinking if it didn't work properly, it was on them. It works flawlessly. If I had a point here, I've lost it, but I wouldn't count on the Kindle app working on most non-Amazon devices, in my experience.
I love kindle Unlimited I also manage to buy a deal where I would be charged within the next 6 months which I enjoyed (it's ending next month) but I discovered that you can gift someone a kindle Unlimited membership and really want to know if you can gift this to yourself?
As someone who is considered a speed reader(And a daily reader, at that), it's DEFINITELY cheaper and more convenient than buying all of my books! Reading an entire series in a weekend is great... unless you have to buy each book at $15 each!
I also love reading newly released books by new authors and giving them feedback (and proofreading... I'm always sending in spelling and grammatical errors, as well as the occasional factual error)
I personally love KU , I read on average three to four books a week, but what I really love about it is I have found many new authors I don’t think I would have tried otherwise, but because they are with KU you don’t have anything to lose . And if you don’t like the book you just return it, win win .📚📚📖📖🏴🇬🇧🇬🇧
I love KU. I use it to supplement my library loans. I read genres that have long hold times. And with Covid-19 I’m seeing even longer hold times. KU is worth it to me only because I bought the 2yr deal on Prime Day last year. You can’t beat 40% off. At $143.80 I calculated I’d need to cancel Audible for 7 months to justify buying KU. It was so worth it. In fact I’m so satisfied that I never renewed Audible. For the most part there’s enough audiobooks in KU that I don’t feel deprived. Since I’m a KU member I’m doing a trial of Audible Escape. Romance isn’t my thing, but paranormal romance is. I’m not sure I’m gonna keep it yet. It may be a sub I rotate like I do streaming services.
Hii Dale . I have recently self published a book through KDP . I would like to know what are next steps to be taken for a newbie like me . I had a very clear idea of things to do till I published , but once I published the book , its as if my mind has gone completely blank . Other than refreshing my reports page of KDP I can think of nothing else .
Dale, I'm a recent subscriber who is publishing three books through KDP (Kindle unlimited for the ebooks and enhanced distribution for the paperback versions). I don't see a video on how the books are linked for a sale discount on Amazon. Is there a way for the author to do this or is it an Amazon algorithm thing based on "frequently bought together" items? I'm still a week or so away from getting the third book out there and would like to offer the three together when I send out my launch announcements. Any guidance?
As someone who likes to 'collect' books (be it in physical form on a shelf, or having a digital library with everything I‘ve ever read) - the 'only 10 at a time' is kind of a dealbreaker for me. If I liked a book, I like to keep them to re-read later, or even if it’s research for my own writing work.
Great video though, Dale! I love how you always consider pros and cons in a fair way :)
