Amazon has now made it possible for owners of some Kindle books to lend a book for a one-time period of two weeks (during which time the lender cannot read the book). The borrowed book can be read on a range of devices. Not all books can be loaned - the decision to make loans possible is up to the rights holder, who is usually the publisher.
Although Amazon has introduced the lending option in response to individual Kindle owners wishing to share books with friends (in the same way they could share a paper book, albeit on a limited time and one-time basis), already lending boards are popping up with the aim of connecting people with books to loan with strangers wishing to borrow them.
