With the subscription to Amazon Prime we will have access to Prime Reading, which is a free program of electronic books offered within the Amazon platform. It works as if it were a private library for Amazon Prime members. In addition, Prime Reading not only has free books but you can also find free magazines and even audiobooks.
The Prime Reading operating system is very similar to that of a library, that is, we do not acquire ownership of the book but rather borrow it for reading. Prime users can download up to 10 books for free. Once you have finished reading any of them, you can return it to re-download any other title offered for free..
Another benefit of Prime Reading is the program called Amazon First Reads, which offers Amazon Prime members to read a preview of books by certain authors before they are published. Amazon Prime users can enjoy one book advance per month.
Prime Reading is available on all platforms where you can access Amazon so you can take advantage of this program from your computer's Web browser, the official app for Android or iPhone or Fire tablets.
