Borrow Books from the Local Library with new Amazon Kindle Feature

Amazon, making good on promises from back in the spring, has started up their library lending service for Kindle.  Beginning today, those of you with a Kindle or a phone/tablet with the free Kindle app can borrow books from your library.  These books can be found at more than 11,000 libraries across the United States and are checked out using the same library card you already own.  Note: Amazon Kindle is optimized for Honeycomb tablets.

Simply visit the website of a U.S. library that offers the OverDrive service and check out a Kindle book.  You will need to enter your valid library ID and your Amazon info.  After that, the book is yours to read, highlight, markup, and more.  Books will expire and automatically return to the library but can be checked out again, keeping the same notes and last page read.  Should you want to purchase the title, well, Amazon will be happy to sell it to you.
