Since the launch of Amazon’s Kindle Unlimited program, I have been a big fan. I have mentioned several times that this program is great for travelers for a couple of reasons but mainly because of the fantastic inclusion of the Lonely Planet guidebooks for your travels. Now, Amazon has given a new, great reason to get Kindle Unlimited.
Kindle Unlimited Delivers Top Magazines
For those who are not familiar with it, Kindle Unlimited is a subscription-based service that lets you borrow up to 10 books at a time from the Amazon library of over a million titles. You can keep the books as long as you want but you just cannot have over 10 at any one time. The program costs $9.99 per month but there are often deals to give you the program at a lower price when you pay for multiple months.
One of the great parts about the Kindle Unlimited program is that it works on any device that has the Kindle app (unlike the Kindle Lender’s program with Amazon Prime) and there are over 300 Lonely Planet guidebooks that will help you to get all of the info you may want for your next trip – for less than the cost of a single Lonely Planet book!
Now, Amazon has brought a new feature to the Kindle Unlimited program and that is a rotation of top magazines each month. As someone who has not had a regular magazine subscription for a while, I am pretty excited about this. It wasn’t that I didn’t like getting magazines but just that there were some months that I did not read them and I felt like I was wasting the subscription (even when it would only cost $5 per year!).
With this new addition to the Kindle Unlimited program, I can read from a variety of magazines whenever I want while just having them there as part of my membership.
Here are some of my favorites that are available this month:
- Sports Illustrated
- National Geographic Traveler
- Runner’s World
- Condé Nast Traveler
- Outdoor Life
- Popular Mechanics
- HGTV Magazine
Plus, there are many more available as well (see the full list here)! If you have not yet signed-up for Amazon’s Kindle Unlimited, consider giving it a try. There is a 30-day free trial so it won’t cost you anything to give it a shot!
Look at it this way – if you are the kind of traveler who might buy a random magazine in the airport, you are already almost the whole way to a single month of Kindle Unlimited which will give you a lot of magazines and books for that price!
