Good news for Kindle owners who are library lovers

Amazon announced last week that you can now borrow Kindle books from your local library.

Amazon offers a help page with questions about borrowing Kindle books for those needing more assistance.

If you need more help, check out the following links from cnet.com:

When I was browsing CLEVNET's eMedia collection for books for my Nook over the weekend, I noticed the option to request Kindle books. Be prepared to sit on a waiting list for the book you want (notice "The Help" had 457 patrons on the waiting list when I took the screenshot on the right [and I'm about in the middle of that list]).

CLEVNET allows you 48 hours from notification that the book is available to check it out, and you can have it on your device for up to 21 days before it expires. So remember to act quickly and don't delay your reading! Or you'll be in the middle of an interesting book when it expires and you can't open it again.
