The new service is available on Kindle as well as on the Kindle app for iOS and Android
The Prime Reading service will also offer exclusive short-form reads in the form of stories, memoirs and essays from a variety of writers.
“Amazon Prime just got even better with the addition of Prime Reading, giving customers unlimited access to over a thousand books, including bestsellers like Harry Potter and the Philosopher’s Stone, magazines, and comics for no additional cost,” said Alessio Santarelli, EU Kindle content director at Amazon.
“Prime members will love the range of books now available to them on any device, with everything from psychological thrillers, to business books, the latest travel guides and bestselling fiction.”
The service can be tested out on a 30-day free Prime trial
For those who don’t yet subscribe to Prime, Amazon offers a 30-day free trial enabling them to try out Prime Reading.
“Magazines tap into the passions of consumers, there’s something for everyone, whether that’s music, sport, wine, TV, craft or fashion,” said Neil Robinson, Time Inc UK digital director.
“Adding our magazines such as Ideal Home and Woman’s Weekly to Prime Reading means we can now offer our engaged readers even more choice, better access to our content and the opportunity to discover even more magazines from a range of different interests.”
Prime Reading is the latest in a series of services Amazon has launched for its £79-a-year Prime scubscribers, including Prime Video, Prime Music and Prime Live Events.
