Last week, I wrote about about Library Books for the Kindle. I was so excited that I would now be able to borrow library books on my Kindle. For free!!
I started with The Stand by Stephen Kind, which is now 65% complete. (I had to renew it today – it’s a long book!)
This afternoon, I went to Amazon.com to take a look at the current best-sellers to get some inspiration for the fiction portion on my “books to read” list (I have mostly non-fiction…).
You will not believe what I found there… A message from the CEO on the topic of “Kindle Owners’ Lending Library!”
First I thought maybe this is a plug for Lendle. I have looked at Lendle from time to time, but never borrowed anything there. (I’ve lent one book.) I could never find what I wanted. But this is different.
Kindle Owner’s Lending Library is free for people with an Amazon Prime membership. Here’s what the ad says:
Kindle owners can now choose from thousands of books to borrow for free including over 100 current and former New York Times Bestsellers – as frequently as a book a month, with no due dates.
I’m thinking that as soon as I’m done with The Stand, I’ll do a free 1-month trial of Amazon Prime and see what the assortment is like. Maybe it’ll be worth it. It will depend on the assortment of non-fiction books compared to what I can get at the library.
Kindle Owner’s Lending Library sounds like a good deal, especially for folks who already have an Amazon Prime account. I’m really enjoying the new options for getting free reads on the Kindle.
