Check it Out: Amazon Will Add 11,000 U.S. Libraries to the Kindle
Amazon just eliminated one of the biggest differences between the Kindle and competing e-readers. It said today it will be rolling out the Kindle Library Lending feature later this year, allowing customers to borrow books for free from more than 11,000 libraries in the U.S. Other e-readers and e-book services have allowed books to be checked out from the library for some time. Amazon said library books will be available both on Kindle devices and through the Kindle’s mobile apps.
