I have a very ‘it’s not you, it’s me‘ relationship with Kindle Unlimited. I know I should, but I don’t pay too much attention to all of the dramas going around surrounding Amazon and what it does for the book business. I just know for a busy Mom, who loves to read, having my Kindle is very convenient. and my relationship with Kindle Unlimited has proven to be complicated.
The thing with Kindle Unlimited for me is simple: Your Girl doesn’t like paying for something she doesn’t tend to use. There have been months and months where I pay for KU, one click away throughout the month but never actually read any of the books. This presented an issue for me. Why am I paying for something I don’t use? I questioned myself on this. I questioned myself on, do I keep it so that I don’t feel like I’m missing out? Because let’s be real here, as a romance reader, there are so many damn good romances on KU! Well, I went with the decision to get rid of both Kindle Unlimited and Audible Escape. I figured between the library and Scribd, I’d be okay.
That lasted about a week. I hooked back up with Kindle Unlimited. The good thing about KU is that you can break up and get back together as conveniently as needed, and as of now, he isn’t going anywhere. I haven’t gotten back together with Audible Escape because honestly, while I still have the Audible App, very rarely did I actually use Audible Escape for my audiobooks. Yes, there would be times I’d get on there and binge a series, or listen to novellas, but those times were few, far and in between. I actually have purchased most of the audiobooks on my app and most of them were super cheap because I had them downloaded via Kindle Unlimited. So right now, I am comfortable with my decision.
My intention is this: I am paying for it, so I need to read at a minimum, two Kindle Unlimited books per month. If I read more than that, great! That is the ‘expectation,’ though. I truly believe in getting what you’re paying for. And I encourage you, if you’ve been thinking of this late, to ask yourself, is it worth my hard earned money if I’m not using it? That money could be saved or spent elsewhere.
Now that I’m back though, here are the titles I’ve one clicked so far:
Of course I had to one click away on one of my favorite authors, Melanie Harlow. I clicked three titles by her:
First is, From This Moment which is book 4 in the After We Fall series.
Next is Irresistible which is book 1 in her Cloverleigh Farms series
Followed by Undeniable which is book 2 in the Cloverleigh Farms series
One that I have already started is my first ever Kandi Steiner romance and that’s On The Rocks
So far I have kept it simple and haven’t gotten out of control. These are four books I’ve really wanted to read so I decided to put them first and go from there. I will definitely be getting to these this month!
So yes friends, I am back with Kindle Unlimited as of now, and I’ll keep you posted on the status of our relationship. Will we successfully stay together and find a groove that works, or will we not work out, yet again. Only time will tell.
