Amazon Finally Lets You Lend Kindle E-Books

Lend Kindle E-Books
In October, Amazon announced that it would begin allowing Kindle owners to lend books to friends and family, so long as they use a Kindle (or the Kindle app), too. The company promised the feature would arrive before the end of the year and, while Amazon is cutting it pretty close with a December 30th launch date, it stayed true to its word. Users can now lend e-books for up to 14 days, although they won't be able to read the books while they're out on loan, and publishers will ultimately decide whether to allow their books to be lent out at all. The total number of loanable books is unclear, but Amazon has said that it includes over half of the currently available library. Instructions for how to loan out books can be found here.
