Kindle Unlimited- How it works and why you should finish the books you start.

So I don’t know how may of you guys have a Kindle Unlimited membership, but for thoseKU-retail-lp_KindleCards._CB292599245_ of you who do, Sapphire’s Destiny is free on Kindle Unlimited.

For those of you who don’t have a membership, I highly recommend it if you read a lot of books like I do. At $9.99 per month, it’s not that expensive and you can borrow quite a few books at the same time. As an added bonus, you can try Kindle Unlimited Free for 30 days. That way you can make sure you like it before you pay anything!

If you don’t know how Kindle Unlimited works for us authors, let me explain. When you borrow a book, the author gets paid for each page that you read. Right now I think it’s about half a cent per page, so if you don’t finish the whole book the author only gets paid for the pages you read and not the ones after you stop.

So let’s say you borrow a book that has 300 pages but stop reading it after 150 pages. The author would make roughly $0.75. If you finished the whole book, the author would get roughly $1.50.

You can say thank you to all authors, whether you liked the book or not, by skipping all the way through the book. It doesn’t cost you anything extra for finishing any of the books you borrow and the authors will be paid for their hard work.

If you didn’t like the book, you can always skip to the end and leave an honest review explaining what was wrong with it. We authors are notified of every review and most of us read them all. We use your reviews and critiques to make our writing better.

In conclusion, Kindle Unlimited is deffinately worth the money. Remember to show authors some appreciation by finishing the books you borrow in KU and leaving an honest review.

If you don’t have the Kindle App for your smart phone, tablet, or other smart device (android, iphone, or other device) you can get the Free Kindle App Here.
