I have been loving my Kindle since purchasing it a few months ago and it has really changed my entire reading routine. I have been reading so many books, especially in the past few weeks with being stuck in the house and needing a really great distraction.

When I purchased the Kindle, I was able to score a free trial of Kindle Unlimited and I was pretty excited about it. I've thought about purchasing Kindle Unlimited but never really saw the intrigue; I didn't see a ton of books I would want to read until I started actually using it.

My trial ended in November and I've been paying for the subscription ever since.

If you don't know what Kindle Unlimited is, it's a subscription service offered by Amazon where you pay $9.99 a month and get access to thousands of e-books. You can 'rent' up to 10 books at a time and when you're done, you can return them to make more room.

A lot of the books on Kindle Unlimited are by unknown authors, self-published or books you may not think about reading. However, there are a ton of books that are very popular, like all the Harry Potter books, the Hunger Games series, and a ton of Alice Hoffman books. Kindle Unlimited was how I was able to read 'Practical Magic' and 'Rules of Magic' back in October.

Another great feature of Kindle Unlimited is that certain books come with Audible audiobooks so you can listen and read at the same time. If you've been around for a while you know that audiobooks are my favorite! I used to listen to them all the time and read a ton of books that way so having this incorporated right into a Kindle Unlimited subscription is a great perk.

Aside from books and audiobooks, you can also gain access to a lot of magazines through Kindle Unlimited. It's not a perk I have personally used but I like knowing it's there if I want... and who knows, during these social distancing times, I just might.

Some of my favorite books and authors are currently on Kindle Unlimited, like Lauren Layne and Colleen Hoover. Verity is currently on Kindle Unlimited so in my opinion, it's worth it for that title alone.

If you are spending a ton of money on books, especially during the next few weeks, I recommend trying out Kindle Unlimited. Look into if you're eligible for a free trial and look through the catalog to see if it's something worth it to you.

For $10, you would probably spend more on books right now so try it out! The good thing about Amazon is that they make it super easy to cancel so you wouldn't have to worry about that.

Have any of you tried Kindle Unlimited? What did you think?
