New Amazon Prime Feature

Starting this month, Amazon Prime members will be given one free Kindle book. The book will be a title that will be released during that month, and there is a selection of four books to choose from.


The optimistic me is excited. Who doesn't like a free* book? And also, hey, finally an Amazon feature I'll use (I signed up for Amazon prime in May or June and tired of their streaming features fairly quickly). The pessimistic side is skeptical. Why would Amazon give away a new release unless they are cleverly fishing for reviews.


Ah well. For now I'm just going to enjoy my free book and see how this plays out.


Anyone else get the email? Thoughts...Rants or Raves?
