Kindle Unlimited truly sucks.
I wouldn’t mind spending some time every week to find three or four books that might be readable, but more and more, it was taking longer to find a book than to read it. Last time I tried, I looked through 50 pages of depressing garbage without finding a single book I was willing to try.
The Amazon.com main site does a pretty good job of making suggestions for me based on past purchases; Kindle Unlimited seems to think I like cowboy porn. Reader reviews don’t help as every book on Unlimited has four and a half stars.
Unfortunately, the local library doesn’t have a big selection of ebooks. Most of what they have is mass consumption junk, and worse yet, it’s a struggle to get a library book to load on my Kindle.
I like my Kindle and am a compulsive reader, so I’m going to have to figure something out.
