Amazon Launches Kindle Lending Library

Amazon launches Kindle lending library

Amazon announced Thursday that it has launched a Kindle lending library for owners of its e-reader who are also subscribers to its Amazon Prime service. Prime members can borrow one book a month, with no due dates. Users are allowed to have one book out at a time, the company said in a press release.

Senh: Wow, Amazon Prime is looking like a great deal. $79 a year for two-day free shipping, streaming movies and tv shows, and now borrowing books. It might be time for me to ditch Netflix Instant Watch.
