The new service features access to more than 600,000 books and thousand of audiobooks

Amazon on Friday debuted a new Kindle Unlimited subscription service which allows access to more than 600,000 titles and thousands of audiobooks. Priced at $9.99 per month, the service includes such popular books series as The Lord of the Rings, Harry Potter, and The Hunger Games.

While the library is a great start it is nowhere the breadth of the full Kindle store; the same goes for the audiobooks through Audible. For a limited time, Amazon will toss in three months of access to Audible’s full library when signing up to Kindle Unlimited. And, for those shy about coughing up ten bucks on a new service, you can sign up for the 30-day free trial.
