Amazon was testing the service, but pulled the pages (they're still available on Google Cache). If you search the Kindle store for "KUA Test," you'll still find a selection of titles that presumably would be part of the service.
This new service also sounds similar to the Kindle Lenders Library, which Kindle users have access to when they pay the $99 per year for a Amazon Prime membership and has 500,000 books. This new service, if it launches, would cost about $20 more. However, Kindle Unlimited might be able to offer a better selection, which could justify the higher price.
