A new Amazon Prime program allows members to check out books on Kindle for FREE. A member of our Faithful Provisions Facebook Community, Heidi Gidley, recently gave us some insight on this newest offering from Amazon:
As a Prime member you get one book from the library to borrow free per month. If you want to actually keep this book for your Kindle, it would cost $8.99. On a side note, I’m a Prime Member and I absolutely LOVE it! The movie/TV show choices are so much better than Netflix, plus it’s cheaper than Netflix, PLUS you get two day shipping on ANY purchase amount for a full year. And you can share the free two day shipping with FOUR other people! It’s awesome.
Here’s the official info from Amazon‘s site:
For Kindle Device Owners
Borrow this book for free, with no due dates, if you are a Kindle owner and Prime member. If you don’t own a Kindle, get yours today. If you’re not a Prime member, start your one month free trial today. You can borrow this book from your Kindle device.
