Amazon Kindle First launches in the UK, boasts free books for Prime members
Amazon Kindle fans in the UK are in for some good news, as the new Kindle First daily access service has finally gone live in the country.
For those unfamiliar with this service, Amazon created Kindle First in order to enable Prime members to choose one featured book for free, each month, to enjoy on their Kindle devices and apps. Moreover, Kindle First also brings the neat ability to read select books ahead of their official release.
"Kindle First is a programme that offers customers early access to new Kindle books across popular genres from Amazon Publishing," the company explains. "Every month Kindle First customers may choose one of the four books selected by Amazon Publishing editors for £0.99 (includes VAT). Joining is free with no purchase obligation. By joining, you agree to receive a monthly e-mail announcing new Kindle First picks. You can unsubscribe from the monthly e-mail at any time by visiting AmazonLocal and Amazon Delivers E-mail Subscriptions in Your Account."
This month, for instance, the Kindle First books on offer include From the Cradle by Louise Voss, Mark Edwards, The Glassblower by Petra Durst-Benning, Samuel Willcocks, The Fallow Season of Hugo Hunter by Craig Lancaster, and My Sister's Grave, by Robert Dugoni.
Amazon Prime members are automatically eligible for Kindle First and will get to choose one book out of those four and enjoy it for free. Customers can use any Kindle device or free Kindle reading app to read Kindle First books, which will become part of their permanent libraries. It's worth pointing out, however, that Prime invitees and Prime Instant Video customers are not eligible for free downloads. At the same time, Kindle First books downloaded for free cannot be returned. Once you've unsubscribed from the email notifications, you will no longer receive announcements for the latest books on offer, but you can re-subscribe at any time.
All in all, avid readers who also happen to be Kindle fans will most likely enjoy this new Kindle First service, and the UK rollout is expected to come as good news to many.
