Who Knew? Loan Your Kindle Books

A while back, I learned from a tech-savvy friend that you can lend books that you have downloaded to your Kindle.  "Wow, who would have known?" was my first thought.  My second thought was, "Maybe everyone but me."

In the event that you too fall into the "didn't know" category about this novel little lending tidbit, here's how you do it:
  • Click on the "Manage Your Kindle" tab in the Kindle Store.
  • A list of the titles you have purchased will come up.
  • Click on the "action" button to see if the title you have selected is lending approved.
  • Lend away by entering the recipient's email address.
The publishers decide on the terms of the loan.  For example, our 39 Clues books appear to be loanable once for 14 days.

Perhaps we could all be sharing our Kindle books as well as our title suggestions.  If you'd like to borrow 39 Clues Book number 2, 4, 5, 8, or 9, send an email to lpreads @ gmail.com and we'll get it right over to you.  If you'd like to loan any of your books, please leave the title and your email address in the comments.

With the holidays coming, this could be a good time to give a Kindle a try.  Prices have just gone down to $79 for the entry level model.  Be sure to click through to Amazon using the link to the right!
