Are you a Kindle reader? I am and I love it (thank you, boyfriend!!) – I have read so much more now that I have the entire Amazon catalog at my fingertips.

A dear friend alerted me to some exciting news recently… Now you’re able to “rent” Kindle books for free! As long as you have an Amazon Prime account, you’re good to go. According to LifeHacker:

The new Lending Library turns your Kindle into a sort of virtual library, with currently 5,000 titles you can borrow from Amazon, including 100 New York Times bestsellers. You can borrow one book a month by going to the “Kindle Owners’ Lending Library” in the Kindle Store on your Kindle device. Books with the Prime icon can be borrowed for free for the month (as long as you’re a Prime member).Correction: There are no due dates, but you can only have one book out at a time.

If you’re a student, don’t forget the 50% discount for Amazon Prime previously mentioned atAmazon Student or the free Amazon Prime accounts at Amazon Mom.

Even if you don’t fall into one of those groups and have to pay the $79 membership,
as Gizmodo notes, Amazon Prime is still the greatest deal in tech. It’s no longer about just shipping, but unlimited video streaming and now books.

Pretty amazing deal.  I am currently a graduate student, so you know I’ll be signing up to take advantage of the 50% discount!  I’m sure that I’ll be able to get my money’s worth – I am in a book club, after all 🙂

Will you sign up for this program? Are you already an Amazon Prime member?
