Have you ever loaned a book to someone who take ages to return the book? Have you ever loaned a book to someone who never returned it? Have you ever had someone you don’t really know ask to borrow a book and you hesitated to loan it in case you wouldn’t get it back?
Enter Kindle. I have been wanting to read “Switched” by Amanda Hocking for a while and today I happened to see on the kindle-lending group on goodreads, that there was someone there who had the book and lending was enabled for it. An email and an hour later I have received the book on my kindle loaned to me by someone I have never met or talked to. Why would someone I never knew loan me a book?
Well kindle loans are for 14 days and then the book automatically returns to the owner, pristine and perfectly preserved. Problem solved.
