I've just bought a Kindle, and so far my only real complaint is the one book per month rule. Kindle unlimited sounds cool in theory, but the extra $120/year is a deterrent for me. Just to clarify, that cost is in addition to what I already pay for Prime, correct?

How long do we get to keep the books we get on Unlimited? Is it like Prime reading where I borrow the book, or is it my book forever since I am paying a separate cost?

to get another book one you've borrowed 10, you will need to return one

Does Kindle unlimited impact my Audible subscription?

From Amazon terms of service "...Kindle Unlimited is a subscription that offers you unlimited access to over 600,000 Kindle books and over 2,000 audiobooks with Whispersync for Voice. You can keep up to ten books at a time and there are no due dates...."

".. or is it my book forever since I am paying a separate cost?"

No, you're just borrowing the book(s). If you quit the service, the books go away.

Question for those of you who have joined KU:

Are there notifications sent to your email address when a K book has been obtained via this program? If so, are there separate notifications for the associated audible versions?

You don't have to get the K books via a device as you do with the KOLL, right? I'm assuming the MYK (yes - I know the name has changed) has a category to track these entries?

I'm not really interested in this for my own use but I do feel it may be of value to those other persons who have devices registered to my account (they have differing reading preferences than I.) If a sufficient number of eligible titles interest them, I'd want to be able to see what is going on without having to do MYK every day exclusively for that purpose. I'm also wondering how my audible-located library would be affected as, apparently, you get those linked audible versions automajically without any specific instructions from you for them, right?

No but Kindle Unlimited gives you a credit for each of the first three months.
In the welcome email there is a link to Audible and selecting it gives you a free credit.
The next two will come after your subscription is paid in the following months.

Thanks for the clarification. It sounds like it's a great service for people who don't already have Prime, however I'm less inclined to pay $200/year to have both. If KU was discounted for Prime members, I might consider it. In the meantime, I'll continue to get books from my library.

In reply to an earlier post on Jul 19, 2014 7:36:46 AM PDT
I think KU is meant to appeal to the people who were like, ""One book a month?!? That's not worth the cost of Prime!" (Of course not.) "I would NEVER use the shipping!"

Et voìla.

Yep, makes sense.

I have the same issue. I'm already paying for Prime and am disappointed in Amazon for making this a separate charge, as you pointed out - an extra $120 a year. I don't mind paying for one or the other, but not both. Unless Amazon finds a way of including this in part of Prime, it is unlikely that I will be utilizing this service.

Posted on Jul 22, 2014 4:09:04 PM PDT
I have to agree with many of the people on this thread. I'm already paying for Prime; Kindle Unlimited ought to be a part of Prime. It certainly would be a fabulous incentive. However, paying extra for Unlimited service just isn't appealing. Please, Amazon, reconsider!

In reply to an earlier post on Jul 22, 2014 4:10:46 PM PDT
They might. And then the price of Prime will go to like $139/year.

Prime is a shipping program with perks.

Kindle Unlimited has nothing to do with Prime. It is up to each shopper to determine whether Prime or Kindle Unlimited is worth it to him/her.

Yes, and one of those "perks" was the Lending Library feature. And I haven't yet found out if it still exists on its old terms separate from Kindle Unlimited, or if the Lending Library has been replaced by UNLIMITED...

Quite a few people have indicated on the board that KOLL still works.

In reply to an earlier post on Jul 23, 2014 11:48:01 AM PDT
They're all still there. Follow this search process:

Toggle to Kindle Store. Go.
Click Kindle E-books.
Type into search window the words: prime eligible.
Go.

THOSE results *ARE* in fact KOLL books; they just don't show the banner on that list view. PICK A BOOK, and you'll see on the product page that it will have the Prime logo.

I'll just keep reposting the same freakin' thing.

In reply to an earlier post on Jul 23, 2014 11:48:39 AM PDT
you don't have to have prime to own a kindle.

In reply to an earlier post on Jul 23, 2014 11:50:29 AM PDT
there were many people who have come along here and have posted they would pay for this service... now the service is there and the people who don't want to pay for it are complaining..... can't please everyone

In reply to an earlier post on Jul 23, 2014 11:51:25 AM PDT
Sure... it can be part of prime .... for a yearly fee of $218.88.

In reply to an earlier post on Jul 23, 2014 11:52:00 AM PDT
Imagine the complaining that will come along then ... "who wants this unlimited reading ... I don't think *I* should have to pay for that"

In reply to an earlier post on Jul 23, 2014 11:53:13 AM PDT
It exists just as it has all along. Go to your device and borrow a book. https://www.amazon.com/gp/feature.html/ref=prc_bw_koll?ie=UTF8&docId=1000739811
