Amazon unveiled earlier this week the new lending library which will allow Kindle and Kindle Fire users to borrow one electronic book per month. But there are some strings attached : it’s basically free but you have to be an Amazon Prime subscriber which costs $79 per year.
The collection of Prime Lending Library books for Kindle devices in now available and can be accessed from everywhere.
“Titles in the [lending library] come from a range of publishers under a variety of terms,” Amazon reps wrote. “For the vast majority of titles, Amazon has reached agreement with publishers to include titles for a fixed fee. In some cases, Amazon is purchasing a title each time it is borrowed by a reader under standard wholesale terms as a no-risk trial to demonstrate to publishers the incremental growth and revenue opportunity that this new service presents.”
The library includes more than 5300 Kindle publications but you might not be able to view the entire list as some users report that after viewing 1000 they are getting cut off. There are lots of interesting books to borrow but you will have to go through the list yourself if you are an Amazon Prime member.
