Amazon US adds Prime Reading feature

Amazon is continuing its campaign to increase the perks it offers to Amazon Prime users to make it increasingly “irresponsible” not to have a subscription. This new feature is called Prime Reading and it gives you access to a stack of book, magazines, comics and other reading that means that you’ll never be short of something to peruse.

The choice is eclectic. They say you can read “The Hobbit, Harry Potter and the Sorcerer’s Stone, The Man In the High Castle, The Millionaire Next Door, Half Way Home and When I’m Gone, comics such as The Complete Peanuts Vol. 1 and Transformers: Robots in Disguise Vol. 1 as well as short works including Kindle Singles from Andy Borowitz, Stephen King, Jane Hirshfield and classic works from Gloria Steinem, Norman Mailer and Kurt Vonnegut.”

You don’t need a Kindle, you can use the apps on your phone too. Although it does appear to be currently a US only feature.
