What It Is: Give ’em the gift that keeps on giving: access to 800,000 books! Okay, now pick that jaw up off the floor. Kindle Unlimited is an online book subscription service. Similar to Netflix’s DVD rental service, for $9.99 / month, you can download an unlimited and HUGE range of titles. The awesome thing is, you don’t even need a Kindle to enjoy it. Read your selected books on your existing devices – including your smartphone, tablet, or other ereader (provided you can download apps onto it).
It’s a great way to save on buying the latest titles off the shelves, plus it allows you to dodge the dreaded wait lists at your local library. And getting a book right as you hear about it is oh so easy, since you’re almost always near one of your existing devices.
Who It’s For: Your book-loving spouse, so they stop filling up your bookshelves. Your tween or teen, to encourage them to read more. Your family member that lives in a remote area, for easy access to hot books.
What It Costs: Kindle Unlimited costs $9.99 / month
Where It’s At: You can sign up for a 30-day free trial at Amazon.ca
