44th President of the United States Barack Obama is one of the most beloved world figures in history, so the release of his first presidential memoir, A Promised Land, is a major deal.

While titles as highly anticipated as this one aren’t as cheap as standard releases (it is a collectors’ item, after all), you can read it for 60 percent off its original retail price with Kindle.

A Promised Land, the first volume of President Obama’s presidential memoirs, was officially released today (November 17, 2020) and is already a No. 1 best seller on Amazon.

The book, described as “a riveting, deeply personal account of history in the making — from the president who inspired us to believe in the power of democracy,” tells the story of Obama’s journey as a young man searching for his identity and progresses all through the first term of his historic presidency.

In addition to A Promised Land seeing President Obama join the ranks of his wife, former First Lady Michelle Obama with the success of her book Becoming, it should be noted that it’s so much cheaper to read with Amazon’s Kindle Unlimited service.

In fact, new subscribers can currently get their first two months for just $0.99 with this special two-month deal.

Kindle Unlimited users often pair the service with an Amazon Kindle device like the one pictured above. However, if you don’t have one and would rather not make the additional purchase — no worries! The service works with any e-reader-enabled device like an iPad, a smartphone, a laptop and even a desktop computer.

Through this method, users can access millions of titles on one thin, portable device and, in turn, save the planet. After all, you’ll be cutting down on paper, not cutting down trees.

Please note that this two-month deal is only available for a limited time, so snag it before the price changes.
