Kindle First offers e-books a month early for $1.99, free for Prime members Amazon has announced Kindle First, a new service that offers Kindle users (devices and apps) access to a selection of new e-books a month before official release.
Kindle customers will be able to choose an e-book from a selection picked by Amazon Publishing editors to buy for $1.99 - or for free for Amazon Prime members. You don't need a Kindle device to benefit from Kindle First.

Customers can also sign up to get a monthly e-mail alerting them of new Kindle First selections.

The debut Kindle First picks are Things We Set on Fire, by best-selling author Deborah Reed; No Place for a Dame, by best-selling romance author Connie Brockway; Silent Echo, by best-selling mystery author J.R. Rain; and We Will Survive: True Stories of Encouragement, Inspiration, and the Power of Song, by Grammy-award winning recording artist Gloria Gaynor. All books will be published in December but are available to Kindle First members starting today.

"Prime just keeps getting better for our members, and any customer will find something interesting in our Kindle First picks," said Russ Grandinetti, Vice President of Kindle Content.

"We also love that these amazing books by Amazon Publishing authors will get a chance to reach a much wider audience."
