NEW YORK (AP) — It’s Amazon’s latest effort to become a big part of your world — if it isn’t already.

The company has rolled out a new subscription service that allows users unlimited access to thousands of e-books and audiobooks.

The Kindle Unlimited service costs $9.99 a month — and will let users read as much as they want from the more than 600,000 titles in Amazon Kindle’s online “library.”

Users will also be able to check out of any of the thousands of Amazon’s books in audio form. Amazon is offering a free 30-day trial to entice users to try the service.

Recently Amazon has launched a video streaming box and grocery delivery service, unveiled plans for a smartphone — and expanded its Sunday delivery service, all for members of its Prime service.
