Kindle Unlimited gifting is back in the Kindle Store. In a limited-time offer you can get it the 12-month plan for $80 (33% off) / Images: Amazon
Kindle Unlimited was always a great Christmas gift idea. Especially now, when the 12-month plan is on sale for only $80 (and you save 33%).
Many products listed in Amazon’s Last-minute Deals section can still arrive before Christmas.
Unfortunately, Kindles are out of the equation. The newest Paperwhite is back on stock on December 24; the basic Kindle and the Oasis can be shipped on January 9, the soonest.
You can always buy Amazon gift card. You can also try other gift ideas for Kindle lovers, but as long as these gifts are real products, the time is not your ally.
And this is where Kindle Unlimited comes extremely handy. You can buy the subscription on Christmas, and a few minutes later you can give it as a gift – and make a Kindle fan in your life extremely happy.
We’ve reported three weeks ago that Kindle Unlimited gifting was removed from Amazon, but you know what: it’s back, just for Christmas!
One plan is available, but its price has been reduced in a limited-time offer. Picture this: you can get the 12-month Kindle Unlimited plan for $80. It means the price is reduced by as much as $40 (33%), from the regular annual cost of
Why Kindle Unlimited? As much as 80 KU-eligible books are among Top 100 Kindle best sellers of 2018.
Plus, Amazon is moving away from deals on long-term Kindle Unlimited plans, offering prolonged free trial periods instead. The three-month Kindle Unlimited for $0.99 doesn’t sound like a worthy gift, does it?
Before making a decision, explore the Kindle Unlimited catalog to double-check whether the giftee finds enough books in her or his favorite category.

The Ballad of Songbirds and Snakes
The Hunger Games Prequel
by Suzanne Collins
Part 1: The Mentor
Coriolanus released the fistful of cabbage into the pot of boiling water and swore that one day it would never pass his lips again. But this was not that day. He needed to eat a large bowl of the anemic stuff, and drink every drop of broth, to prevent his stomach from growling during the reaping ceremony. It was one of a long list of precautions he took to mask the fact that his family, despite residing in the penthouse of the Capitol’s most opulent apartment building, was as poor as district scum. That at eighteen, the heir to the once-great house of Snow had nothing to live on but his wits.
His shirt for the reaping was worrying him. He had an acceptable pair of dark dress pants bought on the black market last year, but the shirt was what people looked at. Fortunately, the Academy provided the uniforms it required for daily use. For today’s ceremony, however, students were instructed to be dressed fashionably but with the solemnity the occasion dictated. Tigris had said to trust her, and he did. Only his cousin’s cleverness with a needle had saved him so far. Still, he couldn’t expect miracles.
The shirt they’d dug from the back of the wardrobe—his father’s, from better days—was stained and yellowed with age, half the buttons missing, a cigarette burn on one cuff. Too damaged to sell in even the worst of times, and this was to be his reaping shirt? This morning he had gone to her room at daybreak, only to find both his cousin and the shirt missing. Not a good sign. Had Tigris given up on the old thing and braved the black market in some last-ditch effort to find him proper clothing? And what on earth would she possess worth trading for it? Only one thing—herself—and the house of Snow had not yet fallen that far. Or was it falling now as he salted the cabbage?
