Good News for Kindle Users

September 22, 2011 Thuy 2

 
Anyone else excited about the news that Kindle users can now borrow books from public libraries?  In my opinion, the no library and no lending (which Amazon kind of resolved but not really) were the main strikes against my Kindle. I mean, I love it and all but it seemed silly not to have library or personal lending available.  I’ve already been to the Los Angeles Public Library site to try out the new function. Since my Kindle is old school and doesn’t have wi-fi, I had to transfer it using my USB cord.  It seems to have worked though and I have waitlisted myself for several books already.  I don’t see myself using this option all the time but it is a nice alternative to have.  Thanks, Amazon. To learn more about borrowing books from your local library, go to www.amazon.com/kindle/publiclibraries.
  • Yep! Husband and I were googling our nearest LAPL for this reason… Even though I’m backed up on my reading list, I’m still really excited about this new development!
