Members of the Amazon Prime program now have free access to more than 1,000 Kindle books and other e-reading materials.

If you don’t own a Kindle e-reader, you can still enjoy this recently announced Prime perk, which is called Prime Reading.

You can read Kindle e-books on a variety of computers and mobile devices by downloading the free Kindle app to your computer or device. To learn more about how this works, visit Amazon’s Kindle app page or check out “How to Enjoy E-books Without Buying an E-Reader.”

The selection of e-reading available through Prime Reading includes best-sellers, classics, magazines, comics and short works.

This newest Prime perk is not the only one that caters to readers.

Last month, Amazon announced that Prime members would have free access to Audible Channels, a new short-form digital audio service from audiobook company Audible Inc. Prime members can also now stream a rotating selection of Audible’s audiobooks.

Prime is Amazon’s subscription program. It costs $99 per year or $10.99 per month, and a free 30-day trial is available.

Other Prime subscriber benefits include:

  • Free two-day shipping with no required purchase minimum
  • Free video streaming, including movies and TV series
  • Free unlimited music streaming
  • Free unlimited photo storage
  • Early access to Amazon Lightning Deals

To sign up for a free trial or learn more, visit Amazon’s Prime page.
