I couldn't believe how abysmal the selection was. Also, depending on how many books you read a month it can really not be worth the cost.
In the future, we'll have a system where we subscribe to one service that gives us digital access to every newspaper, every book, every television series, every movie, every song, every video game...
We'll pay ~$100 a month and software will track how much time we spent accessing each piece of copyrighted material, across all our devices.
At the end of the month, the owners of the copyrights will be paid an amount of money from that $100 that is equivalent to the percentage of time we spent viewing each piece of copyrighted material.
Consumers will pay overall much less to access media and games, and creators will be paid vastly more than they ever have been before.
It's basically an outlet for Amazon's many many self-published titles (which for this purpose I am including [their imprints] (https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Amazon_Publishing#List_of_imprints
)). There's some good stuff in there, but if you have specific authors or books in mind, there's approximately zero chance you'll find them on Kindle Unlimited.
Also, since almost everything in that catalog is $5 or less, you have to ask yourself whether you'll read from the KU catalog enough to justify a $10 flat monthly fee. I read three or four books a month, but from a variety of sources, not just Kindle authors. So I just buy the books separately, which I hear is better for the authors anyway.
Sometimes goodreads kindle deals of the day churn out some books on my tbr for $2. You can try this but it's not the most reliable method.
Do you have overdrive? It's a great way to borrow ebooks from the library electronically.
I also unsubscribed from kindle unlimited initially being disappointed with the selection. However, I recently got a two month subscription and have found some hidden gems.
I'd definitely check out overdrive though!
I don't understand how working a lot means you don't have time for the library? Do you mean actually *going to* the library or using the eBook service?
