The service is bundled into the monthly or annual fee Prime members pay, and publishers and authors who agree to add their books to Prime Reading are paid a flat fee.

In the UK, the cost is  £79.

“Amazon Prime just got even better with the addition of Prime Reading,  giving customers unlimited access to over a thousand books, including  bestsellers like Harry Potter and the  Philosopher’s Stone, magazines, and comics for no additional cost,” said  Alessio Santarelli, EU Kindle Content Director, Amazon.

Titles highlighted in the Prime Reading launch offering include Robert Ludlum's The Bourne Enigma, business guides such as How To Be A Productivity Ninja, the Man Booker Prize shortlisted The Fishermen by Chigozie Obioma, and various short works.

Nate Hoffelder is the founder and editor of The Digital Reader:"I've been into reading ebooks since forever, but I only got my first ereader in July 2007. Everything quickly spiraled out of control from there. Before I started this blog in January 2010 I covered ebooks, ebook readers, and digital publishing for about 2 years as a part of MobileRead Forums. It's a great community, and being a member is a joy. But I thought I could make something out of how I covered the news for MobileRead, so I started this blog."
