Kindle Unlimited in India everything you need to know
I've been a Kindle Unlimited(KU) Subscriber and Kindle Device Reader for quite a few years now.
My device is a basic 6-inch reader with no colors and nothing fancy. And yet I continue to read at least 2/3 books on it, for it's sheer ease and features. Read on to know why.
What is Kindle Unlimited?
Everybody now has heard of Amazon and Kindle Unlimited is Amazon’s digital reading subscription. Imagine a digital library, only better. Millions of books ready to be devoured at a click.
Education or Entertainment could never have been easier.
How does Kindle Unlimited work?
Contrary to the belief that you need to own a Kindle device to enjoy Kindle Unlimited, the Kindle Unlimited App is absolutely free.
You can download it on your phone, your laptop, or your tablet and of course it’s in-built on a Kindle device. To download or borrow books you will have to pay a monthly subscription fee.
Your books on the KU App can be read anywhere, everywhere (I’ve read them in my toilet too). You get access to millions of books available in the digital format and some audiobooks. What’s more there are no restrictions of the date on how long you can have these books but there is a restriction on the number of books you can borrow at a given time – Ten. Plenty, I say.
Due to the huge community of book loving Indian readers, India is the first country in Asia and the 10th country worldwide that Amazon has launched Unlimited in.

How to read books in Amazon Kindle?
10 reasons why I love the Kindle Reading App.
- Free - It's a free reading app. No charge whatsoever and you can download it to any device with a single Amazon account.
- Highlights – just select the text and highlight in 4 different colors. I use the pink color for quotable sentences and the yellow color for spelling errors or editing errors I find as a book reviewer. You can share the selected text directly as a quote, or search for it on the internet or even just copy it.
- Taking notes – making notes in the margin of physical book looks messy and untidy. Just tap on the screen and a context menu appears that let’s you take notes on the App. Penning my thoughts has never been easier.
- Inbuilt dictionary – I love learning adding new words to my vocabulary. Its so much easier when while reading all you have to do is select the word and the dictionary automatically pops up with the meaning, synonyms and so much other stuff.
- Back color of the pages of the book – again 4 options. I love the black background when reading in the night and the white background when reading in daylight. It’s super easy to switch and I can adjust the brightness to suit my tastes.
- Font settings – I can go as big or as tiny as I like. My eyesight is still good enough to go easy on the smallest.
- Progress bar in the bottom that tells me how long I have to finish the book/chapter. Its so easy to track.
- No bookmarks need. Just switch off the phone screen or switch to another app without worrying of losing track of your last read page. The next time you open the app it will automatically take you to the last page read across multiple devices. Isn’t it amazing? You can even switch between books in the library that easily.
- Didn’t like a book, Click - return it, Click - pick another one, click – start reading the next. A matter of seconds, literally.
- Goodreads linked – if you’re on Goodreads, the app automatically updates your bookshelf, current reads and finished books to your Goodreads account. As a book reviewer I find this super useful.

If you’re an avid reader like me, and you don’t mind reading books by independent publishers and authors, you should subscribe to Kindle Unlimited.
It is worth every penny spent. 10 books is a lot, I read at least 4 on my Kindle and a few physical books (limited edition) every month.
It’s the best of both worlds. Also I love that I can highlight quotes, take notes and read on my phone, or laptop. So I don’t have to carry books. I always carry my phone, so I’m always carrying 10 books.
And what’s more you can cancel for a month you think you’re going to be super busy with work and continue again when you’re free.
Tip : A Kindle Subscription also works as an awesome gift for a book lover friend. Try it, they’ll love you for it and forever remember your thoughtful gift.
On Wednesday, Amazon India launched the Kindle Unlimited subscription service that allows customers to "borrow" Kindle library books which they can read and return, up to 10 at a time. Confirming what NDTV Gadgets had reported last week, Kindle Unlimited is available in India for Rs. per month, and you can sign up now to get access for the first month for Rs.
This is different from the US model where the first month is free, but then, the monthly fee there is $ (or around Rs. ), so Indian users are still getting a good deal on this.
It's worth noting that you need to have an India account in your country settings - if you had not already done this, then you're going to have to do so now to take advantage of Kindle Unlimited. This will take away one-touch ordering from the Kindle though; of course, if you bought your Kindle after August , when Amazon launched the Kindle Store in India, then your settings were most likely on India anyway.
As we noted last week, with a Kindle Unlimited subscription, you get access to ebooks and audiobooks (which are still in the pipeline for Kindle Unlimited in India) , on any of your devices - if you don't own a Kindle, then you can still make use of the subscription by using the Kindle app on your iOS or Android device, or on the Web. You can "borrow" up to 10 books or audiobooks at a time, for as long as you'd like.
While the low pricing makes Kindle Unlimited sound like a great deal, it's worth noting that not all the books on offer will be the bestsellers that most people want to read. Not all the books you'll find on the Kindle store are going to be a part of Kindle Unlimited.
(Also see: Amazon Kindle Unlimited Review: Limited Selection)
Our first look through the Kindle Unlimited catalog has also not been too promising. While there are some books which are popular, such as Chetan Bhagat's Half Girlfriend, Making India Awesome, Immortals of Meluha by Amish, The One You Cannot Have by Preeti Shenoy, Daily Inspiration from the Monk Who Sold His Ferrari by Robin Sharma, War Brides by Helen Bryan, All I Need Is You by Julia London, Stay Hungry Stay Foolish by Rashmi Bansal, 13 Steps to Bloody Good Luck by Ashwin Sangh, we couldn't find too many books we wanted to read.
There's no easy way to browse through the Unlimited library without coming across a small mountain of self-published books; and while there can be some gems there, it's often a collection worthy of a publisher's slush pile.
At the face of it, Kindle Unlimited seems like great value, but if finding a good book to read among millions is such an uphill struggle, then how many people are actually going to make use of the subscription?

Kindle Unlimited Launches In India
Kindle Unlimited, Amazon’s “all-you-can-read” subscription service, is now available in India. Pricing currently starts at 99 rupees (about $) for a one-month plan, though that will increase to rupees at the end of this month.
Amazon was one of the first companies to launch an e-reader in India when it made the Kindle available there in , but the devices now compete with Kobo and a host of smartphones and tablets. In terms of content, the Kindle Unlimited plan is up against Flipkart, which operates India’s largest e-book platform (according to a report by BMS Index, Flipkart’s e-book market is also the second largest in the world behind Kindle, ranking ahead of Barnes & Noble, FNAC, Waterstones, and The Book depository).
The launch of Kindle Unlimited in India helps Amazon ramp up its competition with Flipkart. Though Flipkart’s share of the Indian e-commerce market is still ahead of Snapdeal and Amazon, monthly unique visitors growth to Amazon’s India site is growing the quickest out of the three, according to comScore, and the Kindle Unlimited catalog may help it pull in even more shoppers.
Making Kindle Unlimited available in India also taps into a market with a lot of growth potential. According to Digital Book World, e-books currently account for just two percent of the country’s $2 billion market, but that amount is expected to grow as more people get their hands on inexpensive smartphones and tablets.
This is the first Asia launch for Kindle Unlimited, which is currently also available in the U.S., the United Kingdom, Germany, France, Italy, Spain, Brazil, Mexico, and Canada.

Both programs boast of offering “unlimited reading” on a vast choice of books and popular magazines for their members, at a surprisingly low monthly fee.
But how do the two programs differ from each other?
And which would benefit you more, Kindle Unlimited or Prime Reading? Or would you be better off with neither?
Let’s answer the questions one by one.
What Is Kindle Unlimited?Click Here to Join Kindle Unlimited

Kindle Unlimited allows unlimited access to, at the time of writing, more than million titles, including hundreds of thousands of titles in various foreign languages.
That includes not only books, but also comic books, audiobooks, and popular magazines (think Outdoor Life, Parents, and Popular Science!)
- Comic Books
- Popular Magazines
- And.. of course regular Books
The books available belong to various genres, from romance, to finance and science.
Thousands of them also come with a narrated Audible audiobook. This means you can make use of Whispersync for Voice to continue reading a book right at the page you were listening to and vice versa.
With a focus geared more toward independent authors and a few specific books and genres, you’ll be able to explore writing styles, genres, and authors that you may have not otherwise found out about.
Kindle Unlimited offers the perfect way to reach past typical genres and authors that you are most used to reading, allowing you to step out of your reading comfort zone while still getting to enjoy popular and fun classics.
Read More: What Is Kindle Unlimited and How Does It Work?
Kindle Unlimited also covers public domain titles, all of which are synched with their free audiobook companion.
What Is Prime Reading?
Prime Reading is a benefit available as a free trial or for paid Amazon Prime members, including those joining the Prime Student program.
It allows Amazon Prime members to browse and read more than a thousand eBooks, magazines, comic books, and more.
Similar to Kindle Unlimited, Prime Reading includes books to borrow for free with Audible narration.
Thanks to that, you can enjoy switching between listening to an audiobook and reading it on your device seamlessly.
Basically, it is “Kindle Limited. It offers a pared-down catalog of the content of the Unlimited program.
What Selections of Books Do Each Offer?
Both Prime Reading and Kindle Unlimited have a great variation of books on different topics for you to discover.
However, there are differences in the size and the quality of the content offered with each program.
Kindle Unlimited Books
With Kindle Unlimited, you can discover more than 1 million titles of books, magazines, comic books, audiobooks, and more.
However, a majority of the titles are self-published by new writers and authors.
The Kindle Unlimited library includes the occasional new release and some massive bestsellers such as:
However, there is generally a lack of titles from the big five publishing companies, including Penguin Random House and Macmillan.
While you can find several classics and best-sellers, most finds will be smaller titles.
This means you may have difficulties looking for some books from your favorite authors.
However, Kindle Unlimited gives you access to hidden gems that may have not made a huge splash.
So, its a great program for avid readers always looking for the next great novel or author.
Amazon Prime Books
Prime Reading, meanwhile, looks more like a subset of the selection from Kindle Unlimited. However, it is known for the quality of the books that are available.
All the titles available to Prime Reading members are handpicked by the editors.
They include best-sellers and popular books from trusted publishing houses.
The number of books you can keep at one time is the same for both programs — ten.
On Which Devices?
Both the Kindle Unlimited program and the Prime Reading program allow you to read on the Amazon Kindle app from any mobile device.
You can download the app for free from your App Store or Play Store and immediately start using it.
So, you don’t even need a Kindle e-reader for either of these programs.
What Are the Costs of Each Program?
Kindle Unlimited Pricing
The Kindle Unlimited eBook subscription costs $ a month. With this membership, you can read any book you want that is available, but you can only keep a maximum of 10 books at once in your account.
Of course, you can always return and read other books at all times and at no additional cost!
With your monthly Kindle Unlimited subscription, you will still be able to use your regular Amazon subscription in any way you wish, including buying other books and goods on the marketplace.
If youre not ready to commit to the paid subscription, you can sign up for a day free trial to see if the program is right for you.
Amazon Prime Reading Pricing
Amazon Prime Reading, on the other hand, is free — if you’re already an Amazon Prime member.
The Amazon Prime program costs $ a month. If you choose to go on an annual plan, the price is $ per year.
With Prime Reading, you can also sign up for a day free trial.
The Verdict – Which Program Is Better?
Overall, the Kindle Unlimited program is ideal for voracious readers who want to explore new authors and experience the newest literary trends.
If you read five or more new books a month, its worth the price. Especially if you prefer to read the more expensive books or audiobooks that are available.
However, if you’re a very occasional reader, Kindle Unlimited may not be your best option.
Keep in mind that several of the e-books available are affordable on their own (ranging between $ and $). So, if the books you read are in the lower price range, you’ll need to read five to nine books per month for the subscription to make sense economically.
Most avid readers, however, will be able to quickly make up the cost of the subscription after reading a few books throughout the month.
Prime Reading, meanwhile, is better for readers that want a more “mainstream” reading experience with better-known books and authors.
As part of Amazon Prime, the subscription also comes with Prime Video (free instant access to video streaming), Prime Music, free unlimited photo storage, and free two-hour, one-day, and two-day delivery. You can even save on Netflix and Spotify!
So, if you frequently shop on Amazon, and also want access to Amazons music and movie libraries, the Prime program is a better deal.
Since both programs offer a free 3- day trial period, you can register for each or both for a month and see which one is more suitable for your needs!
Another choice is to go on and off the membership depending on your needs. If you’re on vacation, for example, it’s a good time to try Kindle Unlimited.
No worries about the risks, because it’s free to cancel any time.Click Here to Join Kindle Unlimited
