Alexa Tip: Set a Timer for Reading Audible and Kindle Books

Alexa can read to you from your Kindle Unlimited or Audible library. I know a number of people that have Alexa read them to sleep, but wake up during the night to hear Alexa still working through the pages of the book.

Did you know you can set a timer that causes Alexa to stop reading after a period of time?

Things you can say while a book is being read…

“Set a sleep timer for [x] minutes / hours.”
“Stop reading the book in [x] minutes/hours.”
“Cancel sleep timer.”
