Prime Reading - Kindle books and comic books available for free with Amazon Prime membership - January 2018

Harry Potter, Star Wars, Wimpy Kid, Peanuts and over 1,100 other titles are available for Amazon Prime subscribers free of charge via Prime Reading.

Many Amazon customers bought the Prime membership before Christmas to benefit from free two-day shipping, exclusive deals, or unlimited access to free music, movies, and TV series.

In fact, Amazon Prime membership includes so many benefits that it’s easy to omit even the most interesting ones. What you may be surprised to discover is that Prime offers a growing number of book-related services, not only Kindle Owners’ Lending Library or free shipping of millions of Prime-eligible paper books.

One of the services every Prime member should check out is Prime Reading. The service gives unlimited access to a rotating selection of 1,000 hot Kindle bestsellers, comics, children’s books, short reads, as well as current issues of popular magazines.

The list of Amazon Prime Reading titles is being refreshed every month, but some of the books, naming only Harry Potter and the Sorcerer’s Stone, stay here since the service was launched in October 2016. These titles are all-time bestsellers and are clearly meant to tempt book lovers to consider getting Amazon Prime.

Last time, we’ve analyzed the selection of Prime Reading eligible titles at the beginning of 2017. Let’s do it again and check out the hottest books on the list. Some of the titles would be a great addition to your 2018 reading challenge, no doubt about it.

The complete list of Prime Reading titles that are available for free with your Amazon Prime membership includes currently 1,125 books and comics.

Just in case you’d wonder what’s better – Amazon Prime or Kindle Unlimited. These two services offer content from the same pool. As much as 1,035 Prime Reading titles are also available via Kindle Unlimited. The difference is the size of catalogs of eligible books: 1.1 thousand via Prime Reading versus 1.8 million via Kindle Unlimited.

Below, you’ll find our favorite books and comics. They are accompanied by price information, so that you can quickly see how much you save by getting them free via Amazon Prime.
