What is Amazon First Reads?

What is Amazon first reads and why you should know about it?

Amazon first reads is definitely one of the reasons why I love spending time on Amazon and searching for new books to read, at the moment you can take advantage of it only if you own a Kindle. If you don’t have one and you would like to see what options you have you can select here and see all the Kindle devices available.

What is Amazon first reads though and why you should even bother knowing? Here are some reasons why you should know and take advantage of it.

– You have early access of new books from a variety of subjects that you can read instantly on your Kindle device.
– If you have a prime Amazon membership then every month you pretty much have a free book available for you to read so if you are one of those that love books then this is something that it will make your day.
– If you are not a Prime member, no worries! You can still participate and you will have to pay only $1.99.
– You would like to read more? Even better! You can select print editions for maximum $9.99 and most of the times even less!

How do you see which of the books you can read for the current month? You can select here to see all the available first reads of the month!

What else you should know about Amazon first reads? At the moment it is available only in the US and only the Kindle unlimited subscribers can get all the new goodies for Free when they are released.

Bring your Kindle, everywhere!

What does Kindle Unlimited offers? With Kindle unlimited you will be able to have access to more than a million titles, browse months magazines and for the fans of Audiobooks, you will be able to listen thousands of those books with Audible and the best of it is that you can read it in any device with the Kindle application.

A lot of people don’t love Kindle and generally e-books because they love the feel of the book, the pages, the smell and of course the ability to write things on the spot, I totally get that and I agree but sometimes if you have a trip that you would like to and can’t really bring 2-3 books with you Kindle is ideal since you can store unlimited books and you can start any of them at any time.

I wouldn’t say that with the Amazon first reads or the Kindle unlimited you will replace the joy of reading books but you will be much more flexible and be able to “carry” more books with you and pretty much have the option to read something else if you are tired of what you are reading or it doesn’t really excite you anymore. That is the advantage of owning an e-book and that’s why you might want to have one and participate in any of these programs that Amazon offers.

Who doesn’t want to make some extra bucks? Amazon gives you the option to sell your books, if you didn’t know that then continue reading the post on how to sell books on Amazon, I will show you step by step how to do it and what to expect.

What are you going to need to sell books on Amazon? You will need the following:

1) An Amazon account, if you don’t have one go to Amazon.com and create an account for you.
2) A marketplace individual seller account, in order to create that you will need to have an amazon account first and then you should go to https://sellercentral.amazon.com and create an account there.
3) The used books or textbooks that you would like to sell.
4) A printer, if you don’t have one check this post for the top rated amazon printers.
5) The shipping label and packing slip.

You should know that individual sellers can’t sell more than 40 books so what I would do in your case is to go through the ones that I have and check if anyone else is selling those books and if yes, how much they sell it.

To do that you will have to locate the item you’d like to sell, in order to do that click from the drop-down books and then search by the title, keywords or even by ISBN.

Next step on how to sell books on Amazon is that after you identified if the book is being sold by someone else to decide if you would like to sell that book and proceed with the next steps. The next steps are for you to input how much quantity you would like to sell, the price, condition and the shipping methods, the methods of shipping could be two either you ship it yourself or Amazon ships it for you and provide also the customer service for your items if they sell which is the best option.

The great thing that you might didn’t know is that you get educated on how to sell books on Amazon, yes that’s right! Amazon provides free tutorials called “webinars” to learn more about book pricing and managing orders you can find more at the individual account seller account under training and tutorials.

More and more people are starting using Amazon to sell their books since it is a good source of income so you will need to be diligent and as they well say, practice makes perfect!

What else you should know on how to sell books on Amazon?

– Once you search and check the competition for the books that you have to sell, if you see that you are not able to make profit from them, don’t list them because it won’t make sense for you.
– The cost of selling books on Amazon is 0.99$ for the individual sellers and $39.99 per month for the professional sellers. Don’t forget that individual sellers can’t sell more than 40 books.

How can you make money by selling them though? Making money by either selling your own books or finding books on a thrift store and then re-selling them is not something super easy to do and needs some research. You should start first by the books that you have and you would like to sell, search competition, see if you can make a profit and list them on Amazon.com.

If the ones that you have are very popular and you can’t make a profit on them then you can search online as well to buy other used books or check the thrift store nearby your apartment or house, write down the titles and then search on Amazon.com to see if you can make a profit for them and then list them, it will take sometime to get the edge of it but once you do then you can make some pretty good money on selling books on Amazon.

So what are the Amazon rentals and what you get by using them?

Amazon rentals is a great way for you to save money and select from a ton of books,textbooks by different authors and always with the flexibility that Amazon has. If you are a student or someone who doesn’t want to own a lot of things but you just want to get the value out of those books then Amazon rentals is a great way for you to do that.

How does it work?

First you will need to search exactly what you are looking for. E.g. if you are looking for a book or textbook for mathematics then search that, if you know also the author even better! You can find the search area for rentals here

Once you found the Amazon rental that you want then click into renting it, check the picture below! If you are looking for a hardcover then click hardcover and then rent!

With that way you will be able to save more than 50% of the initial price but still get the textbook or book that you want!

The next step is to add the book at your Rental cart and then proceed with the checkout! Once you got what you needed from the Amazon rental then you can return it for free at a drop off location.

Another great thing is that if you decide that you want to keep it you can and you can use the rental fee toward the purchase of your Amazon rental!

What you should know if you get an Amazon rental

In order for you to return the book and everything to be fine afterwards please be careful of the following

  • Of any sort of spilling on the book(water, coffee etc)
  • The pages having a normal wear and tare and not to miss any pages and anything is tapped
  • On your due date your will receive reminders from Amazon to return your Amazon rental so you will have to pay attention to your e-mail or just write down the due date(you can find also the due date online on your amazon account)
  • You can extend your rental period by 15 days or you can also renew it for another semester

I think you got a pretty good sense so far about Amazon rentals and how they can change your everyday life! This is great for all the people that live in the US, Alaska and Hawaii. I’m pretty sure that they will launch it also in other cities and countries after that so more people would be able to get this and save money!
