Best Kindle Unlimited Business Books

Best Kindle Unlimited Business Books

Here in the UK, we’re spoilt for choice with thousands of free business books on Kindle Unlimited, available for a flat monthly fee, making it a cost-effective way to invest in yourself and your business.

But how do you know which book to choose, from the thousands of Kindle Unlimited Business books available?

That’s where I come in – I’ve been a small business owner for more than 20 years, have read more than 1,000 business books – and even written four of my own (which, yes, are also available on Kindle Unlimited).

These are my Top 10 Kindle Unlimited Business Books.

What is Kindle Unlimited?

Kindle Unlimited is a subscription-based service from Amazon, allowing you to read unlimited Kindle books for one monthly fee. It’s an all-you-can-read buffet, offering endless courses of knowledge and entertainment on your Kindle device. A true treasure chest for the voracious reader and the ambitious entrepreneur alike.

Imagine strolling into a gargantuan library, where every book whispers your name, tempting you with the secrets held within its pages. Kindle Unlimited is just that, but in a digital realm. For a modest monthly fee, akin to buying a few drinks at the pub, you can download more than a million titles, ranging from business masterpieces to thrilling mysteries. 

How does Kindle Unlimited Work?

Kindle Unlimited is like a library membership for digital books. Upon subscribing, you’re instantly granted the freedom to explore and choose from over a million titles, downloaded straight to your Kindle (or any device with the Kindle app installed).

You’re allowed to keep ten books at a time in your possession. It’s like having a personal bookshelf that magically replaces completed books with new ones at your whim. Enjoy a book, return it with a click, and then dive into your next read. There’s no pressure of due dates or late fees to dampen your reading spree. Keep a cherished book forever, or return a bad choice instantly. Your only restriction is the ten-at-a-time rule – and that should be more than enough for most people. (If you’re reading more than ten books at the same time, I can recommend some books on the importance of singular focus!)

What is the cost of Kindle Unlimited UK?

Kindle Unlimited UK currently costs £9.49 per month. A 30-day free trial period is usually available for new subscribers, although at the time of writing, there is a special “two months free” promotion – so it may be worth checking for special offers and discounts. The membership automatically renews, even if you don’t use it.

Kindle Unlimited is not included in the price of Amazon Prime and will require a separate subscription.

For small business owners and the self-employed in the UK, your Kindle Unlimited membership fee may be allowable as a tax-deductible expense (as long as you are using it to read Kindle Unlimited Business Books). Check with your accountant.
