Amazon is rounding out its Prime loyalty program for subscribers in India with the introduction of Prime Reading this week, which brings a selection of free ebooks that you can read on your Kindle or on other devices using the Kindle app.
This add-on to Prime is already available in some other countries. For folks in India, it opens up access to a decent range of titles spanning several genres including romance, sci-fi, biographies, and travel.
You’ll also find several comics and graphic novels featuring beloved characters from the Marvel universe, Archie’s world in Riverdale, and Peanuts. There’s a small number of Indian language titles as well.
This could help Amazon get new customers hooked on its ebooks offerings. In addition to its Kindle e-reader and its bookstore, it also has Kindle Unlimited, which serves up more than a million titles for a monthly subscription fee of Rs. 150 (just over $2).
If you’re a Prime subscriber in India, you can get started reading some ebooks for free by browsing the collection and adding them to your account from this page.
