If you are traveling this summer, you may want to pick up a couple of Lonely Planet ebooks to get information for your travels. These Lonely Planet ebooks can cost over $20 each to purchase and, in many cases, you only need the book for trip planning and during your trip.
Get Access To Hundreds Of Lonely Planet Books For Free For One Month
As I have written about before, Amazon has solved this problem with what is called Kindle Unlimited. It is a subsctiption based service with Amazon that gives you access to over 800,000 books. You can keep the books as long as you want (with the subscription) with a limit of 10 books at one time. To take out more than 10, you simply have to “return” a book to get another one.
Lonely Planet has hundreds of eBooks available through the Kindle Unlimited program. That means you can “borrow” these ebooks for all of your travels. While there are many times it feels good to have an actual book in your hands or in your backpack, there are many great reasons to have a travel ebook – have a book that is searchable, cut down on weight, carry many books in your pocket, etc.
Amazon offers the program free for the first month and then $9.99 per month thereafter. I have been a subscriber (on and off) for several months as I continue to find great appeal with the program and library of available books. Even though it costs $10 per month, it has saved me hundreds by making available books that I had planned on purchasing anyway. When you need a book for travel, just go ahead and borrow it!
A great thing about the Kindle Unlimited program is that you do not need to have a Kindle device to subscribe – access Kindle Unlimited books on tablets, smartphones, or even your computer. Another great aspect of the program is that it is not a contract, turn it on and off whenever you have need for it and only pay the $9.99 fee for the months you want to “borrow” books.
To sign-up for the first free month, head over here – to Kindle Unlimited.
