Reading is very personal, some people can read a book in a day and some people need a week or longer. If you’re just beginning to read again or if you like to read in small doses, Kindle Vella is the answer.
Kindle Vella is a new feature on Amazon where readers can read serialized stories. So instead of getting a full-length novel, you get a new episode weekly. This makes it easy to read in the morning before you begin your day, during your lunch break, or just before bed.
You can read the first three episodes of a story for free, then if you like the series and want to keep going you purchase tokens on Amazon to unlock new episodes. For $1.99, you can purchase 200 tokens, and that buys you four episodes. Amazon is currently offering Kindle Unlimited members 500 tokens for free if they claim it by June 27th.
Now you know we had to comb through those Kindle Vella stories, and we’ve found ten dope stories that you should read.
