Lendle: Interlibrary loan for the Kindle

Lendle lets you share books with other Kindle users. Simply search the site for the books you own using by entering their title or author, find your books in the results, and click the “I Own It” button. To borrow books, search for the book you’re looking for, or use the Available Now and Recommendations pages to find items that interest you.

If a fellow Lendler requests a book you own, you’ll get a notification asking if you want to lend it. When you lend a book, the borrower will have it for 14 days, and then it will be automatically returned to your Kindle.

Can a book be loaned more than once?

David Booker said...

Shelley, not all Kindle books can be loaned; that is up to the publisher. For those that can be loaned the owner may loan as many times as desired, but only for 14 days at a time. And while your book is on loan, you will not have access to it. The borrower does not even need to own a Kindle. The book can be read on the free Kindle apps available for Mac/PC/iPhone/iPad/Blackberry and Android.
