At Amazon, we've always been obsessed with having every book ever printed, and we know that even the best book reader is useless without the books you want to read. We are fortunate that we have tens of millions of book customers at Amazon, and as a result, we know the books customers want to read and we prioritize getting those titles. Today, the Kindle Store has more than 360,000 books available, including 101 of 112 New York Times® Best Sellers, plus top newspapers, magazines, and blogs. Our vision for Kindle is to have every book ever printed, in any language, all available in under 60 seconds.
Whether you prefer biographies, classics, investment guides, thrillers, or sci-fi, thousands of your favorite books are available. New York Times Best Sellers and most new releases are $9.99, and you'll find many books for less. Content availability and pricing vary for customers living outside of the U.S. Check your country
