Give A Kid Unlimited Books For Just $42 This Year

Still looking for the perfect gift for the children in your life? You can give a kid unlimited books for just $42 this year, thanks to a deal from Epic, the Netflix of children's literature. That's right, a child can receive a one-year subscription to the service, which offers unlimited ebooks and audiobooks, for less than $4 per month. Pretty snazzy, if you ask me.

Throughout the year, Epic offers a 30-day free trial to new customers, then charges $4.99 per month afterward. Thanks to a partnership with CNET, Epic is offering a 12-month subscription for just $42 — a savings of 30 percent. Six- and 24-month subscriptions are also available for $24 and $84, respectively. Best of all, K-5 educators and librarians can get Epic for free!

Epic users get access to a digital library of more than 20,000 books — which CNET notes has roughly doubled in size since this time last year — for ages 2 through 12. The service sports a variety of popular children's series, including Big Nate, Goosebumps, and 39 Clues. Epic also comes with a read-aloud feature and a selection of Spanish-language editions.

Each Epic account can support up to four unique profiles, which means most families will only need to pay for one subscription. Apps are available for iOS and Android, but Epic can also be used in many major Internet browsers.
