Reader Alert!

A quick heads up for those of you who love to read: Amazon has just launched a subscription service for ebooks, Kindle Unlimited.  It's like having a Netflix subscription for books.  The cost: $9.99 a month, first 30 days are free.

As with any subscription service, the key is whether the content they include is what you would have paid for anyway.  (Other companies have tried this in the past, but they never had the books I wanted).  A quick check of my own reading list turned up lots of eligible books, including travel guides, so it was definitely worthwhile for me.  If you are a reader and have made the switch to ebooks, it's worth a look--just in time for summer vacation!
