The days of visiting a local bookstore to buy the latest Stephen King novel is coming to an end. The rise in ordering books online and reading digital copies also known as eBooks are taking over. Moreover, online stores have hundreds of thousands of books in their library. Additionally, there are subscription services that grant unlimited access to their library.
Amazon Kindle Unlimited
Kindle Unlimited has really increased the volume of books in its library. At the time of writing, Kindle Unlimited holds over one million titles, audiobooks, and magazines. Readers can easily access their library using the Kindle App.

Unlike Kindle Unlimited, BookBub is not a subscription service. When users create a BookBub account, they are signing up for alerts on deals on eBooks they might be interested. BookBub allows readers to customize their account to their liking. This means you can choose the genres, authors, and book format you prefer. Then, BookBub connects you to the titles that will most likely interest you. Many times, books will be free!
Aside from eBooks, there are also audiobooks available online. Audiobooks are great for people who have busy lives, but still, want to enjoy stories. Audible is a service provided by Amazon and can be accessed at home or on the go. You can even have the Amazon Echo read your audiobooks to you by asking Alexa!
