Best Kindle books on Amazon Prime Reading, based on reviews

Amazon revealed a list of Top 10 most popular books available via Prime Reading / Book covers: Amazon

Harry Potter tops the list of most popular Kindle books available via Amazon Prime Reading.

Prime Reading is a part of Amazon Prime subscription. The service gives members unlimited access to a list of Kindle ebooks, magazines, children’s books, comics, and short reads.

The Prime Reading catalog includes about 1,000 items. The list is rotating, which means that – just like on Netflix – some titles are coming and some are leaving.

Obviously, the titles on the list are also available for regular Amazon customers – with the exception that Prime members can read them for free.

Many users are looking for the best books that they could read via Amazon Prime. And here comes a good recommendation: Anna Katz, the writer and editor at Prime Insider, has just revealed a list of top 10 Amazon Prime Reading titles so far.

The list is based on the number of reviews and average ratings that were left by Amazon Prime Reading users since the service started in October 2016.

Some books stay on Prime Reading longer than others. For instance, Harry Potter and the Sorcerer’s Stone is here from the very beginning. It’s evident that book this popular will receive much more reviews than a debut novel that joins Prime Reading for a month or two.

Nevertheless, the list is a quick and easy way to spot the hottest titles you can download for free via Amazon Prime Reading.

Below, you will see the Top 10 books, together with short blurbs, and review highlights from Prime Reading users.

The Kindle-in-Motion illustrations are all you could hope for, starting with the delicious cover. The portraits, both still and moving ones, are extraordinarily beautiful. I was so impressed and delighted.
