Read books for free
Jordi C/Shutterstock One of the best Amazon Prime benefits for big-time book readers is a trio of free reading products: Prime Reading, Kindle Owners’ Lending Library, and Kindle First. Prime Reading gives Prime members open access to thousands of free books and magazines each month, from Harry Potter to InStyle magazine. You can even browse these titles and download them to your device for long flights or Internet-free zones.
Kindle Users can access Kindle Owners’ Lending Library and borrow one book per month with no reading deadline. Prime members also have access to pre-released books through Amazon’s early access program, Kindle First.
Prime Reading is available on any device, but the Lending Library and Kindle First are only available on Kindle, Fire tablet, and Fire phone. Find out more ways to read books online for free.
Download videos for offline viewing

Prime members on Fire tablets, Fire phones, Android phones or tablets, and iOS devices can download specially-marked Amazon Prime videos (current options include Creed and Mother’s Day) to their device and watch them later. The time period you have to view a download varies by title, and not all Prime videos or shows can be downloaded.
Long flight ahead? You can download multiple titles. When you reach your account’s maximum, just delete something you’ve already seen, and you’ll have room for the new flick. Don’t miss these Amazon hacks to save money while shopping online.
