If you read 2 books or more a month then its worth it but if you like me that takes a while to read a book its actually cheaper for me to buy books for it takes me 6-8 weeks to read 1 book

I read 3 books a week lol
Had the 3 months free Kindle Unlimited over Christmas.
But many of the books I downloaded were not as good as the reviews.

Do you mean the reviews were worth reading and the books were not?

That's the beauty of KU, in my eyes. If a book stinks, you simply stop reading it and return it. No harm, no foul. Move on to a different book. There are lots of good books in the KU(niverse), and lots of great new authors.

Yes, there are some stinkers, but where in our lives are there NOT stinkers?

In my opinion no unless you read more than 2 books a month. None of my favorite authors are on kindle unlimited and definitely no new releases that im aware of. If you join you may want to look and see if they offer the books your interested in. I read John Grisham, Stephen King, Dean Koontz, Phillip Pullman rather exclusively. If Kindle Unlimited offered all new releases and past books of these authors i would do it

I usually rely on the reviews for new authors
Have found a lot of them that way.

I fully read about 2-3 books a month, so the monthly cost of a paperback book is a valid subscription cost in my eyes. However, KU allows me to try far more books, in greater depth than I could otherwise. And I don't have to decide if I want to be the first to buy a book that sounds interesting just because no one besides the author's mom has reviewed it.

One of the things I like doing is finding new (to me, at least) authors. If the user only wants to read established authors, KU is not worth the money. But I think KU is a great way to find new authors and reward them with a little spending cash.

Thanks very much. I usually just subscribe for just a month now.
So eligible.
I create an Unlimited Wish List then when I have a few books in it I sign up for a month.
