Amazon to let Kindle users lend e-books

Amazon has taken a huge step in improving the eBook experience by allowing Kindle users to lend their books to friends. Kindle users will be able to lend books to other users of the Kindle device or app, while losing access to it themselves.

Books can only be lent once, and loans will be limited to 14 days. In addition, says the company, not all e-books will be lendable. "This is solely up to the publisher or rights holder, who determines which titles are enabled for lending," says Amazon.

Announced on the Kindle Forum. Read more at the link.
