Prime membership... I would like to know if you can get a prime membership for books only ? And if so how much does that cost. I don't want movies or any of the other stuff.

No. You can't.

Prime is first and foremost a shipping program; the free streaming and Kindle Owners Lending Library are perks.

You can borrow ebooks from your public library, though.

No you can't. Prime membership is an all-or-nothing membership. You either get the shipping and movies and one book per month or you get nothing. There is no book only membership.

What you're looking for is your Public Library.

The Kindle Owners Lending Library so limited in selection as well as the monthly one book limit that it isn't really much of a perk anyway. In addition to borrowing from public libraries, there are plenty of other sources for free and low cost e-books. If you don't buy enough Amazon merchandise for the free Prime shipping to pay for itself, you're better off forgetting about Prime membership.
