Initially launched in 2016, Prime Reading is a perk of an Amazon Prime subscription that gives you access to a limited selection of content. The service launched in China in April 2018 and then the UK, Austria, Germany, France, Spain, and Italy that summer, and now Amazon is launching Prime Reading in Canada.
Amazon announced on Friday that Canadian Prime members can now enjoy reading from a rotating selection of books, comics, and more – at no additional cost.
Prime Reading features include:
- Hundreds of popular Kindle books: Enjoy a diverse selection of titles, including bestsellers Harry Potter and the Philosopher’s Stone, The Seven Habits of Highly Effective People and over 90 Lonely Planet guides, as well as favourites from Canadian authors like Water For Elephants by Sara Gruen and Room by Emma Donoghue, and titles from Thomas King.
- Award-winning comics: Dive into popular comics like Star Wars, Batman Vol 1: I am Gotham, Captain Marvel Vol 1 and Black Panther.
The service is available through the Kindle apps for iOS and Android, the Kindle, and the Kindle Fire Android tablet.
