Yes! There is a but here and you need to keep that in mind while you read books on Amazon prime reading. You can only get access to 10 books at a time at the most.

If you wish to get another book, then you will have to return a book that you’ve read already or you don’t wish to read any longer. After you return that book, you can now add another to your Kindle.


Some people might confuse it with Amazon’s Kindle Unlimited but Amazon prime reading is totally different. What’s different?

  • Amazon Prime Reading is an additional feature that you get access to if you’re already a subscriber to Amazon Prime.
  • It has a limited number of books available to read for free whereas kindle unlimited has much more to offer. So they ain’t same.
  • Amazon Prime Reading gives you a limit of 10 books to read at a time whereas there is no such limit for Kindle unlimited.
  • For kindle unlimited you need to take the subscription separately. There is no such thing as an automatic subscription to Kindle Unlimited if you’re an Amazon Prime member. (I had this confusion initially which I wanted to make clear for all those reading this article!)

The good thing about prime reading is that new books keep on adding and the list is being increased by Amazon, so If you love reading books for free and has a Amazon Prime subscription then you need not be disheartened about the limited library as it is being expanded as per Amazon. So, enjoy your free amazon kindle books.

So, I Hope this article about Amazon Prime Reading helps you get a better understanding about Prime reading and you can avail this free service where you get access to some top-selling books, magazines & comics.
