Best Ebook Subscription Services Ranked

by Acharya Mukti Indias top astrologer

These days almost every online service we have is based on a monthly or yearly subscription. These online streaming and subscription services are forming the future. These subscription-based services are now available for e-book readers as well. Although these services have been around for a while, they haven’t been as widely used. These services are excellent for people who like to read quite often as you have to pay monthly charges.

Scribd

Scribd was founded in 2007, but it has been offering its subscription services since 2013. Since then, it has been one of the most reliable and trusted ebook subscription platforms that are available in web, Android, iOS, Kindle Fire, and Nook devices. You can access their services from any part of the world, but some books are limited to a specific region only. They offer audiobooks, magazines, sheet music, etc. and you can choose your pick from various interest categories. Their plan starts at $10 per month, and you will get access to unlimited books. You can try their free trial for 30-days and decide if you want to continue on their platform.

Bookmate

Bookmate brings you the easiest way to enjoy the e-books as it is available as a mobile app for Android and iOS devices. It is widely used in Russia and the Commonwealth of Independent States (CIS). Here, you can subscribe and read new releases, biographies, fantasy, and detective novels on the app in English, Spanish, and 13 other languages. In case you don’t find the book, you need, you can upload it to Bookmate in FB2 or EPUB format, and get it directly on your smartphone. You can customize your screen. It enables you to download the audiobooks for offline listening as well. You can connect to your friends on this app, and check their feed, books they read, and more.

Kindle Unlimited

It is one of the most popularly used ebook subscription services. You can switch between e-books and audiobooks. If you don’t have a Kindle, then download the Kindle Unlimited app on your smartphone and enjoy all the benefits. Unfortunately, it doesn’t have a tie-up with major publishing houses, which might be a deal-breaker for a lot of readers. You can use it on the web, Windows, Mac, and Kindle Fire. The services are currently available in all the major countries. Their plan starts at 10/ month for unlimited reading and listening. Try their 30 days trial and then decide if you want to continue using their service.

24Symbols

It is one of the cheapest options of all as it offers a discounted rate for a one-year-at-a-time subscription. Their subscription starts at $9/ month, and for unlimited book collection, you have to get their yearly plan for $90. It is available on iOS, Android, Blackberry, PC, Tablet, and Kindle Fire. They have a vast library full of fiction, non-fiction, contemporary reads, essays, business & economics, and more. 24Symbols don’t offer free trials.

ComiXology

It is an Amazon company entirely dedicated to comic book readers. It has over 25,000 digital comics, graphic novels, and manga from DC, Marvel, Image, Dark Horse, and more. You can sign in with your Amazon account. They charge $5.99/month after 30 days of the free trial. If you had a Free Trial within the past 12 months, you would be charged immediately. It is currently available in the US only, and you can access it from Web, Android, iOS, and Kindle Fire.

Before purchasing any service, make sure that you evaluate your needs, the genres you read, and the device you use to read the e-books. If you rarely read anything or read a wide variety of genres, then these subscription services might not suit your budget and interest.
