Amazon Enables Book Lending For Kindle

| December 30, 2010 | Reply

We know you do all of your reading here at GizmoNinja, but we figured you would like to know that Amazon has updated their ubiquitous Kindle e-book reader to now support lending of titles to other Kindle users.  Publishers have the ultimate say as to whether their title will be lend-able (and from the anecdotal evidence bouncing around twitter today, not many have opted to enable the setting as of yet) and there are a few restrictions to the lending options. Namely, books can only be lent out one time and that’s limited to a 14 day period.  Naturally, you can read the lent book on any version of Kindle including the apps for iOS, Android, Blackberry, PC and Mac.  And of course, just like a real book, if you lend someone a book, you cannot read it yourself during the time that it is lent out.  Does this new feature make you consider the Kindle platform ahead of the other burgeoning e-book markets available today? Check out the link at the source for all the details and let us know what you think in the comments!
