[close] This is a group for readers who own a Kindle and are enrolled in Kindle Prime. Authors who have their books currently in the KDP Select program are encouraged to post their book by genre and let readers know the dates that their book will be available to borrow, as well as the five promotional days when it is free to purchase. Hopefully this will mutually help readers have access to free books without having to sift through thousands and will help KDP Select authors get their books noticed.
