The Kindle First program gives Kindle First members the opportunity to download one of six editors' picks a month before the official publication date, either for free or at a reduced price. New titles are announced at the beginning of each month.
If you have an Amazon Prime membership: You can download the Kindle First title of your choice for free. With Amazon Prime (including regular, discounted, or free trial Amazon Prime memberships), you're automatically eligible for the Kindle First program, and can download one Kindle First title for free each month, a month before its official release date.
If you do not have an Amazon Prime membership: You can become a Kindle First member subscribing to the Kindle First monthly email newsletter. With a Kindle First email subscription, you'll receive information about new Kindle First titles each month, and become eligible to purchase a title of your choice each month, one month prior to their release date, at a reduced price.
If you unsubscribe from the Kindle First monthly e-mail newsletter and do not have an Amazon Prime account, you'll no longer be eligible to purchase Kindle First books at a reduced price, before their release date. Kindle First downloads are limited to one per month and do not carry over from previous months. You can pre-order any additional selections at the standard Kindle Pre-Order Purchase Price. Kindle First titles cannot be gifted until their official publication date.
Note: Kindle Unlimited subscribers can borrow Kindle First books for free after they are released (one month after they are available with the Kindle First program). Learn more about Kindle Unlimited.
