Just yesterday, Amazon launched a page announcing a new subscription service titled Kindle Unlimited before quickly making the page unavailable. But today, it’s been made official. Amazon is now offering Kindle Unlimited, where readers can pay $9.99 a month for unlimited reading and listening on any device. Users will have access to more than 600,000 titles and thousands of audiobooks.
Basically, Kindle Unlimited works like a Netflix for the book world. And as EW pointed out yesterday, its main rivals will be Scribd, which offers over 400,000 titles for $8.99 a month, and Oyster, which offers over 500,000 titles for $9.95 a month.
