1. Kindle unlimited

This is one of the most popular subscriptions when it comes to books. It has over one million ebooks, audiobooks, and magazines to choose from, and there is no limit that the users are allowed only up to a certain number of downloads per month. The users can download and read as many books as they wish without limit and it's up to the user to make the most out of it. One attractive thing about this subscription is its rating system. Here, you can get the best user rating and reviews from users all over the world, and it's miles beyond any other services online. When it comes to drawbacks, there is one that not all the major publishing houses participate in it including HarperCollins and Penguin Random House. So there is a chance that you may not find the best seller you are looking for. Still, there is plenty of content available with this subscription, and with the amount of ratings and reviews that gets accumulated into each book, one can easily find what to read next.

2. Scribd

Scribd is one of the best options, if you are a student or researcher, as it contains everything from novels to academic papers.

Bookmate also provides a social media interface enabling the users to browse through what their friends are sharing like quotes from their favourite titles, and the only downfall with this subscription is that it lacks many best sellers. Otherwise, it's a fun place to spend time with, going through the world of books with friends, sharing opinions about the book. It provides more than just reading.

4. Comixology unlimited

As the name implies, it certainly has a lot to offer for comic book fans.

It's not just limited to e-books, it also has audiobooks to browse through and listen to. Though there are audiobooks available, it comes with one limitation, that is you won't be able to save too many audiobooks to your library as you do with kindle unlimited, where you can listen to as many as you want. Instead, you will be getting only one audiobook per month, but in the case of books, you are free to download any number to your library. From contemporary and classics to even comic books and graphic novels, you will find all of it here.
