Lent from the Library
Monday, September 26, 2011
Good news for Kindle lovers (like Suzy). You can now borrow Kindle books from more than 11,000 libraries across the United States to read on any generation Kindle device, free Kindle app (on you iPad!), or in your browser with Kindle Cloud Reader. Public library books for Kindle provide the same unique features as Kindle and Kindle books, including Whispersync technology that synchronizes your notes, highlights and last page read, real page numbers, and more. This new program has begun to roll out to libraries nationwide. Check your local library for details and book availability.
You can borrow Kindle books from your local library's website, and, with the click of a button, have them delivered to your Kindle.
-Visit the website of a U.S. library that offers digital services from OverDrive.
-Check out a Kindle book (library card required).
-Click on "Get for Kindle." You will then be directed to Amazon.com to redeem your public library loan. You may be required to login to your Amazon.com account -- or create a new account -- if you're not already logged in.
-Choose to read the book on your Kindle device, free reading app, or Kindle Cloud Reader.
