Amazon Lending Library Grows

Back in November I wrote about the New Amazon Lending Library available to Amazon Prime Members.  When the lending library first went online, just over 5,000 titles were made available to Amazon Prime Kindle owners.  Amazon Prime is $79 a year and provides members with three amazing features:

  1. Free two-day shipping, or over-night shipping for only $3.99
  2. Instant access to numerous movies/television programs via streaming
  3. Access to the Amazon Lending Library

Now the lending library provides Kindle owners access to over 66,000 titles.  Kindle owners can "borrow" one free book per month without a due date.  Users must own a Kindle, the lending library does not work with the Kindle App on other devices.  If you own a Kindle and shop using Amazon frequently, now may be a good time to spend the $79 and become an Amazon Prime member.  I am currently a Prime member (mainly for the shipping and the streaming) and enjoy the service.  It is nice to receive items in just two days with no shipping charges.  With the additions to the lending library, I am seriously considering buying this low cost Kindle to take full advantage of my Amazon Prime membership.

Are there any Kindle owners out there that have tried the lending library?  I would love to hear about your experiences with the lending library before I buy a Kindle.  Do any Kindle owners plan to add the Prime membership to access the lending library?  Feel free to comment!


  1. I am having a hard time geting it too work, don't know what I am doing wrong. I have followed the unline instructions.

  2. Are you speaking about the Kindle itself or using the lending library?
