Today, Kindle introduced a new book lending feature which lets users share a book for two weeks. Users may only share a book once, and during the two weeks their access to the book is blocked. This new feature will work on both Amazon’s eReader and Kindle apps.
Lending an eBook is free, though not all titles can be shared. According to Electronista, some major publishers such as Hachette, Harlequin, and Penguin have not yet approved all their books for the borrowing feature. (To check if a particular title is available for lending, visit its product page on Amazon and look for “Lending: Enable” under the Product Details.)
For now, lending a book requires users to go through the book’s product detail page or the Manage Your Kindle account page. For more information, visit Amazon’s help page for Kindle book lending.
