Woooheee! Select Kindle books can now be loaned to friends and family for 14-days! Be sure to read through all the rules before getting started, as the program is a bit strict. The biggest issue (in my mind) is that it is the publisher that determines whether a book can be loaned or not, and a quick glance through my Kindle library, showed me that only
30% 10% of my books could be loaned.
To loan a book, go either to your Manage Your Kindle page (at Amazon.com/Your Account/Digital Content/Manage Your Kindle) or do it directly from the book’s page at Amazon.com. Here are three screen shots of the “Loan This Book” button.
I look forward to the day when it is a bit easier to determine which of my books is loanable. In fact, what I’d really like is two RSS feeds: one of all my Kindle content, and another of just the loanable books. Am I geeky or what?
