Things I may read free via new Amazon Prime Reading …

Okay, so far not exactly seeing the touted "thousands" of books/magazines on offers for the Prime Reading that's free with Amazon prime subscription (UPDATE:  just spotted the browse the catalog link showing current 1,014 works) .  But, I may bite at these.  I expected more from the launch.

 

The Essential Calvin and Hobbes: A Calvin and Hobbes Treasury - Bill Watterson

Plus more magazines (I know, not really that different from a trial subscription or just  adding a subscription to services like Next Issue, Texture or Magzter program subscription).

 

Most of the books I looked at, like with previous KOLL and Kindle Firsts, seem to be published by one of Amazon's own imprints. At this time, it's so new I don't know much including if any traditional publishers will be allowing their books to be in the program.  This is all just me browsing a few minutes after I just discovered Prime Reading rolled out.
