Use the public library to borrow more than one a month. Your taxes help pay for it. Amazon has to pay for every book borrowed on Prime, so it's unlikely it will ever be more than one a month.

There have been other threads on this.

Should Prime have another price hike to pay for that, or should authors get less per loan?

No. Amazon would have to charge a lot more for Prime to recoup their costs.

Even allowing for the slush pile within the bazillions of freebies, my To Be Read pile is huge. I try to make sure I remember to take my Prime borrow every month, but even without it, especially with the public library, I will never lack for something to read.

Hi, limit is one book per month - I just returned on "book" that I borrowed using the prime option - the item counted as one book but was actually a series of 3 books "Victorian San Francisco mysteries" - contained 3 full length novels ( Maids of Misfortune, Uneasy Spirits, and Bloody Lessons" ) -- one way to get around the one book a month

Given that I don't bother to borrow books most of the time, I have no need for more than one book per month.

Amazon is in business to sell books, not to provide an all-you-want-to-read buffet for $99 a year.

As long as one is clear on the difference between wishing and expecting, one can wish for anything.

Although if I were going to wish for more free books, it wouldn't generally be for the ones in the KOLL, which are (with a few exceptions) not the cream of English literature.

Despite the fact that I have been a prime member since its inception and I have owned kindles since 2009 I have yet to take advantage of the KOLL.

yes I wish but I understand why not. :)
