Happy Weekend, RG2E Peeps!
We’ve got a few questions for ya today about Amazon’s Kindle Owners’ Lending Library…
Not sure what that is?
Here’s the scoop…
Some of the Indie Epublished books you see on Amazon have this message under the pricing section:
For Kindle Device Owners
With your Amazon Prime membership, you can borrow this book for free from your Kindle device.
With Prime, Kindle owners can choose from over 270,000 titles to borrow for free – including all seven Harry Potter books and more than 100 current and former New York Times best sellers. Borrow a book as frequently as once per month, with no due dates. Learn more about Kindle Owners’ Lending Library.
Basically then, if you’re an Amazon Prime Member (costs around $79 per year), you can “borrow” 1 Ebook per month for FREE. At the end of the month, you either have to “return” the book or you can buy it.

***Note: This is an important series of questions for authors too. Why? Authors are paid a fee each time one of their books is borrowed in this program. They are only allowed to participate in the program though, if their books are exclusive to Amazon. That’s why, for example, I chose not to participate in it as an author…because I don’t want all of you superfab Nook, Sony, Kobo, Apple and other readers to not be able to read my books.
