Comment on this story
iol scitech sep 27 kindle AP A second study from the same team found people who read a mystery tale on a Kindle fared worse at absorbing the twists and turns than those who read it on paper.

Seattle - Amazon is rolling out a new subscription service for Kindle devices that will allow users unlimited access to thousands of books and audiobooks for $9.99 (about R100) a month.

The company said that the Kindle Unlimited service will give users the ability to read as much as they want from more than 600 000 Kindle books such as The Hunger Games and Diary Of A Wimpy Kid.

They can also listen as much as they want to thousands of Audible audiobooks, including Water For Elephants.

Subscribers will get a free three-month Audible membership.

A Kindle Unlimited logo will be attached to eligible titles. The subscription service is available beginning Friday and is accessible via Kindle devices or with Amazon's free Kindle reading apps.

A free 30-day trial can be accessed at www.amazon.com/ku-freetrial. - Sapa-AP
