Prime Reading Canada

Prime Reading Canada

Amazon introduced Prime Reading in Canada in June 2019. The Prime Reading program has been available in the USA for many years.

This is an additional benefit for members of Amazon Prime in Canada. The main features of Prime Reading Canada include:

  • Library of hundreds of rotating books (some books are written by Canadian writers)
  • Selection of popular comics and magazines
  • Popular Kindle features such as Whispersync and Page Flip

What is Prime Reading

Prime Reading is a program that allows Amazon Prime subscribers unlimited access to a large selection of e-books at no extra cost.

This selection can be accessed from any Kindle ebook reader or Amazon Fire tablet.

Also, the content can be accessed via the Kindle apps on smartphones and tablets, Windows and Apple computers. You can download a free Kindle app for Android and iOS from the Amazon website or Play Store.

Amazon Prime Reading Canada

Amazon Prime membership now automatically includes Amazon Prime Reading Canada.

Amazon Prime started by offering free shipping – same-day delivery in Toronto and Vancouver and two-day shipping for the rest of Canada. After that, Amazon added more services for Prime members such as TV and movies through Prime Video and Prime Music.

An additional benefit of membership in Amazon Prime is access to all the best deals that Amazon creates during Prime Day. Prime Day is a two-day event with incredible deals for Prime members only. It happens once a year, usually in summer.

Prime Day happens on Amazon websites in Canada and the USA at the same time - however, its deals are not the same.

Amazon Prime membership in Canada costs $9.99 per month or $99 per year. Post-secondary students in Canada have a 50% discount for Prime members.

Currently (in 2024), there are around two million members of Amazon Prime in Canada.

If you are not a member of Amazon Prime you can sign up for a free trial.

Customers in Canada can sign up for a free 30-days trial for Amazon Prime. This way, you can learn about this service and check does it is worth money before you make any payment for a subscription.

Prime Books Canada

Amazon Prime membership now includes Prime books Canada at no additional cost. Prime members can access several hundreds of fiction and nonfiction e-books, children’s books, magazines, and comic books.

It is like a real library. You are borrowing books. You can download up to ten titles at a time. If you wish to download the 11th title, you will be prompted to return one title, and then you will be able to download a new title.

Several Prime books are available as audiobooks on the Audible. That means you can listen to an audiobook hands-free while driving, working in the garden or kitchen. Using Whispersync technology on Kindle devices you can easily switch between reading and listening without losing your place.

Does Amazon Prime Include Kindle Unlimited

No, Amazon Prime membership does not include Kindle Unlimited.

Is Kindle Unlimited and Prime Reading the Same

No, Kindle Unlimited and Prime Reading are not the same.

Kindle Unlimited and Prime Reading are two similar programs for reading books but there are a few differences.

Kindle Unlimited is a subscription service that gives you access to borrow e-books from the Kindle store and audio books from the Audible. In Canada subscription to Kindle Unlimited costs $9.99 per month.

Kindle Prime Reading Canada is part of Amazon Prime. It gives access to a large selection of e-books at no extra costs only for Amazon Prime members.
