Amazon Unlimited was dubbed the Netflix of books. That is correct as long as you imagine a Netflix consisting of an endless array of low-budget indie releases and some major small studio filks. In truth, Amazon’s new $9.99 all-you-can-read service features no books by “big 5? trade publishers, an issue on which Amazon has remained mum.
While on the basis of the number of books I buy each year, Amazon Unlimited is one hell of a deal. Until I realize that most of the books I buy are from major houses, so it’s questionable whether I actually end up saving any money here.
