Many users who consider getting Kindle Unlimited subscription, want to find out how many eligible titles are worth reading.
The easiest way is to explore the catalog of Kindle Unlimited eligible books, but you will see there – besides the titles that are featured by Amazon – only the books that are currently doing well.
Therefore, we recommend that you take a look at the table below. It includes Kindle Unlimited books that made it to the ultimate list of best Kindle books of all time.
You won’t be surprised to find here all three parts of the Hunger Games trilogy by Suzanne Collins. The order should also not surprise you.
On the other hand, the poor performance of J.K. Rowling’s Harry Potter is quite unexpected. All books from the series are available via Kindle Unlimited since the very beginning and are still heavily promoted as the superstars of the service. Despite this, only the first novel, Harry Potter and the Sorcerer’s Stone, made it to the list of top 100 Kindle books of all time.
Kindle Unlimited was launched in July 2014. This year, only 7 eligible books were good enough to land on the annual list of top 100 Kindle bestsellers. Last year, as much as 82 books from the top 100 were available via Kindle Unlimited.
Top 15 Kindle Unlimited books of all time
In a table below, you will see 15 Kindle Unlimited books that landed on the list of top 100 Kindle books of all time. The list is based on annual bestseller lists from 2007-2017.
Here is the highlight of methodology. Every book on the annual list earns points. The higher the book is ranked, the more points it gets: the #1 book on the yearly list gets 100 points, and the last title gets 1 point.
When is Kindle Unlimited book counted as sold? When the user has read roughly the length of the free sample.
