E-Reading Subscriptions – Which service is right for you?
Did you know that learning more (which includes reading more) is one of the top New Years resolutions for 2020? (Source-The Healthy) One of the easiest and most convenient ways to read more is by utilizing e-reading subscriptions. E-reading subscriptions allow you to read any time, any where and there are actually some incredible deals on e-reading subscriptions right now!
Kindle Unlimited is one of the best e-reading subscriptions. Right now, you can enjoy three months of Kindle Unlimited for just $0.99 a month! This is an incredible purchase as far as e-reading subscriptions go, it includes everything from ebooks, to magazines, to audio books – you can do it all! The best part is that you can use this service on any device, you do not need a Kindle to enjoy the service!
Scribd is another top contender in the world of e-reading subscriptions. It is priced similarly to Kindle Unlimited (when Kindle is having the amazing sale above), at $8.99 a month. What makes Scribd stand apart from other e-reading subscriptions is that along with the unlimited ebooks and audio books, you can also access academic papers and court documents.
This one differs quite a bit from other e-reading subscriptions, probably because it isn’t e-reading at all! This service has two different levels, at $15 per quarter or $50 per year you can get the recommendation services from TBR. This means every quarter, a well-read professional suggests three books they think you will love. I have used this service and loved it, I think it is totally worth it to help you expand your scope of reading! The other option for subscription is the hardcover level. This level is much more expensive at $79 per quarter plus shipping, or $300 per year; this level provides not only the suggestions but the actual books shipped to you. While its a nice idea, I feel like it is super expensive and not worth the price. I would recommend skipping the hardcover subscription and just purchasing the recommendations on your own for cheaper.
This one is for my comic lovers, yes, there are e-reading subscriptions for you too! Comixology is $5.99 per month for unlimited e-reading of a huge selection of comic books and graphic novels. What makes this e-reading subscription even sweeter is that if you’re a subscriber, you can get 10-15% off books from DC, Marvel, Image, Dark Horse and more! This means you can enjoy ebooks as much as you want and save when you just have to have a physical copy of one of your favorites.
If you haven’t already, make sure to also check out my YouTube video on this topic where I go even more in depth on these services and give you my opinion on them all.
If you want even more tips on saving money and to see some cost comparisons of other services, like unlimited smart phone plans, check out my other blogs, which I will be writing all the time in the New Year! As always, the best deals I find on products will also be listed right here on my site and updated constantly. If you want to see deals even before I post them here, make sure you’re on my email list so that you’re in the know.
I hope this helps you feel more informed about some awesome e-reading subscriptions so that you can enjoy. Here’s to a well read 2020!
