Home » Books » Subscription Book Services Yes or No?
scribd

I wanted to point out I know Amazon is the big name is ebook publishing but there are other options out there the one I used for publishing my ebook and started using is LeanPub.

If your a tech person like myself I was astounded at how many tech-related books are on Leanpub by indy authors and the pay what you want model that Leanpub has is very cool. While pay what you want can work both ways for authors Kindle unlimited does not seem to generate much revenue for authors.

I know Scribd gives you unlimited books and one free audiobook month. Amazon offers two book subscription services Kindle Unlimited and Audible which are both good. There are other services that offer book subscription services that have smaller userbases then Amazon and Scribd.

  • Bookmate
  • 24symbols
  • Playster
  • Kobo Plus
  • Audiobooks.com

I am not sure if I like the book subscription model because there always seems to be a book I want to read that is never available for free but I guess this could be said about a movie you want to watch that’s not on Netflix.

While Kindle Unlimited offers Harry Potter all Game Thrones books are off limits for free. I do feel Scribd has a better selection of new releases then Kindle Unlimited and their magazine and comic book selections have much more to offer.

I feel I have not found the right service for me or maybe the subscription model is not right for the book industry. I never see anything from James Paterson, Michael Connolly or Stephen King on any of these subscription services. While I like the subscription model it does not at times offer the A-List authors that many readers enjoy.

I do wonder if the subscription model is the right fit for this industry.
