Amazon Kindle Books Can Now Be Shared

The lending feature is now available for Amazon Kindle eBooks, allowing digital readers to share books for a short period of time–readers don’t even need a Kindle to borrow a book. UPDATE: Visit our unofficial Kindle Lending Discussion Board to share books with readers that share your interests.

Here’s more about the program, from Amazon: “Eligible Kindle books can be loaned once for a period of 14 days. The borrower does not need to own a Kindle — Kindle books can also be read using our free Kindle reading applications for PC, Mac, iPad, iPhone, BlackBerry, and Android devices. Not all books are lendable — it is up to the publisher or rights holder to determine which titles are eligible for lending. The lender will not be able to read the book during the loan period.”

Follow this link to find out if the publisher will let you loan your Kindle books. (Via Jane L)
