There are a number of reports on reddit from Kindle Unlimited users saying Amazon has upped the limit of books that you can have downloaded at one time to 20.
According to early reports, it appears this change is currently a US-only thing so far but hopefully a wider rollout is coming soon.
In the help section on Amazon’s website it still says you can only have 10 titles downloaded at one time, but there are a bunch of people on reddit saying they can now borrow 20 titles at a time, and there’s also the screenshot above from the Kindle app saying as much.
I no longer have an active Kindle Unlimited subscription so I cannot confirm but it appears to be legit.
It would be nice if Amazon actually documented these type of changes somewhere instead of leaving us to discover them by chance, but maybe they just haven’t gotten around to it yet.
Either way, being able to borrow 20 books at once for Kindle Unlimited users instead of only 10 is a nice bonus, especially for heavy readers. I wonder if they’re going to increase the limit for Prime Reading books as well?
You can see how many books you have actively borrowed from KU on the Manage Your Titles page at Amazon.
