Amazon & # 39; s Prime Reading perk is expanding to Canada and offers free e-books and comics

Amazon Prime subscribers in Canada now have access to Prime Reading, a membership benefit that provides access to "a changing selection of books, comics and more" at no extra cost. This content is accessible via Kindle and Kindle Fire devices and via the Kindle app on Android and iOS. You can download a maximum of ten Prime Reading titles to your device in one go.


In terms of selection, Amazon says Prime customers in Canada can expect "hundreds" of options – some books include Audible narration – including:

Hundreds of popular Kindle books: Enjoy a varied selection of titles, including bestsellers Harry Potter and the Philosopher's Stone, the seven habits of highly effective people and more than 90 Lonely Planet guides, as well as favorites from Canadian authors such as Water for elephants by Sara Gruen and Room by Emma Donoghue and titles of Thomas King.

Award winning strips: Dive into popular comics such as Star Wars, Batman Vol 1: I am Gotham, Captain Marvel Vol 1 and Black Panther.

Read on your own device: Use Prime Reading with the free Kindle apps for iPhone, iPad, Android tablets and phones, PC, Mac, as well as on Kindle devices and Amazon Fire tablets.

Popular Kindle functions: Enjoy all the great Kindle features that customers love, such as Whispersync, popular highlights, page inversion, and customer reviews

You will see an "Read for free" option on books and comics included in Prime Reading.

Prime Reading is a springboard to Amazon & # 39; s Kindle Unlimited service, which unlocks a library with more than 1 million titles for a subscription of $ 9.99 per month. It is similar to the way Amazon Prime members offer a free range of music streaming in the hope that they will upgrade to the paid service.

Earlier this week, Amazon announced a new version of the Kindle Oasis, the first e-reader, with a new feature that allows owners to adjust the screen backlight.
