Amazon Prime members have access to Amazon Music Prime and Amazon Prime Video, but not Audible, although it also belongs to Amazon. The only benefit is that Amazon Prime members are invited to start an Audible Premium Plus trial with 2 credits (1 credit = 1 title) that can be used on any titles from our premium selection. A standard Audible Premium Plus trial includes 1 credit. After trial, all members receive 1 credit per month.

However, together with Amazon Prime Reading, you receive access to new free prime reading books every month. There’s something for all sorts of interests and amounts of reading. Children’s books, historical fiction, and nonfiction books are available. Prime Reading is a free benefit included with an Amazon Prime membership, which costs £7.99 a month (or £79 a year) in the UK or $14.99 a month (or $139 a year) in the US.

What is Prime Reading?

Prime members can now read as much as they want from over a thousand books, magazines, comics, Kindle Singles and more. With fiction, non-fiction, children’s books, short works, and magazines right off the newsstand, you’ll always find something to read. Prime Reading includes books with Audible Narration, so Prime members can swatch seamlessly between reading and listening without ever losing their place.
