How do you actually view and search titles that are available for kindle unlimited?

Yes you can!!!! Nothing has changed. If you already borrowed a book in July, of course you can't see a borrow for free button.

you aren't being forced to do anything. It is just a new program that Amazon is offering. Much like the new gym in the neighborhood.... you aren't forced to join.

Unlike Prime, Kindle Unlimited does not require an annual commitment. Set up a "kindle Unlimited" wish list to keep track of titles you come across that you'd like to read, and then when you have enough titles to warrant the monthly fee, sign up for a month. I'm taking advantage of the 30-day free trial, and expect that I'll probably just do a month twice a year after that.

The Artist says:
You probably won't be able to get another 30 day trial within a year after a previous one. You can't get a free trial of Prime within 13 months of your last one.

given the fact that (for right now at least) a kindle unlimited membership comes with a complimentary 3 month audible membership, I doubt amazon will let customers just keep signing up over and over for the 30 day free trial.
look at all the many benefits/extras that prime comes with, and like The Artist said, you can only have a 30 day free trial every 13 months. so, I'm sure there will be some kind of restriction like that in this case.

CatChat & The Artist: Did you not notice that I said "when you have enough titles to warrant the monthly fee, sign up for a month" ? ? ? No expectation at all about repeating the 30-day free trial.

CatChat says:
well, when you say you will do a month twice a year in the same sentence that you say you are "taking advantage of the free trial" it pretty much cancels out (or at least does not make anything clear) the signing up for a month "when the titles warrant a monthly fee".

I like your approach marty888nyc. I looked at about 100 pages last night of Kindle Unlimited books and came across several $5 to $9 books I would read plus tons of low cost books (like The Saint books). As a Prime member I have been using the KOLL for a few years now, and I can see where some folks would wonder if the KOLL would go away with Unlimited. Not go away I see, but the KOLL would not be necessary if you had Kindle Unlimited. I think I will try the Trial effort and make up a list of books to plan out and still be able to read other books. Plus I would use it to send books to my wife's Kindle. One way or another we would get our money's worth. I also belong to a book subscription club called Entitle Books. For $9.99 I get two books a month (to keep). Only catch is you can't read them (EPUB) on a regular Kindle. I use my HTC-One (android) and 1st Gen Kindle Fire, to read those books. I use Entitle to buy books that cost over $5 on Amazon. Like the book I just finished: Siege: A Thriller, which sells for $9.73 on Amazon, I picked up as one of my two books for this month. The other book I picked up cost like $11.99 or so. The difference between Entitle and Kindle Unlimited is that I get to keep my Entitle books, but only 2 a month (at the $9.99 rate), but with the Unlimited I could read more than 2. '

I think I will try both for awhile and see how it works out. If it turns out I am not reading $10 worth a month, I will just stop it. Same thing with Entitle, you can start and stop anytime. No long term commitment.

CatChat says:
unless your wife's kindle is registered to the same account you will not be able to send any books her way.
if her kindle is on the same account, you still only get 10 books at a time. that limit is per account, not per kindle.

I'm hip CatChat, in fact my Kindle is registered to her account, but I do all the selecting of books. I send her a few titles a week. And 10 at a time is a large number. Once I am done reading a book I'll return it and move on. I would say 3 out 4 books selected will be for me. Getting my wife to let me KNOW when she finished with a book might be a problem.

You don't let her select her own books to read and she can't communicate with you when she wants to read another? Maybe she isn't reading them at all since she didn't select them.

Are these books to own or merely lending

In reply to an earlier post on Jul 24, 2014 6:41:21 PM PDT
Lending.

Coach D says:
Zanziber, I encourage her to get her own books, but she just lets me do it. Ditto for library books. I have bought her all the Richard Castle books out there for her to read, and we used the KOLL to re-read the Harry Potter books. As long as she has a supply of books on her Kindle she is alright. For the Unlimited I will just have to check in with her to see when she is thru. She just isn't an Amazon Kindle junkie like I am.

Man, I spend some time yesterday looking at SOME of the books on the Unlimited and I discovered a ton of books. Ranging in prices from $2.99 to $9.99.
