Amazon on Wednesday rolled out a new perk for Amazon Prime members: Prime Reading, a revolving selection of books, magazines and more free to those who pay Prime’s $99 annual fee.
Of the books Amazon is currently touting as part of the collection, the title that immediately jumped out at me is Harry Potter and the Sorcerer’s Stone, which is $8.99 for the Kindle version sans a Prime account. Over in the non-fiction section, there’s a range of Lonely Planet travel guides, which could be handy assuming you’re planning a trip to one of the destinations on offer at any given time. As for magazines, there’s GQ, National Geographic Traveler, and, full disclosure, a handful of Time Inc. publications including Sports Illustrated and Entertainment Weekly. (Time Inc. is TIME’s parent company.)
Is it worth getting Prime for Prime Reading alone? Probably not — there doesn’t seem to be enough here quite yet. But it’s a nice addition to the Prime package, which most notably includes free two-day shipping but also an ever-increasing raft of other benefits, like free photo storage and access to Amazon’s streaming movie and TV libraries.
