There are two sites out there that help you borrow and lend your kindle books. One is booklending.com, the other is lendle.com. Lendle will actually give you credits when you lend a certain amount of books and send you an Amazon gift card.
The one thing that stinks about lending is you can only lend a book one time, that's it tutti finutti no more never again...that is unless the powers that be decide differently. I don't think it's quite fair, if you own a traditional book that you paid for fair and square you can lend for the rest of your life, and of course we have our library's, so maybe in time that rule will pass.
Have you seen the new Fire that Amazon has put out? Looks great. I myself just got an iPad from my hubby for my b'day, and I LOVE it!! I will never give up my kindle, there is no glare at all on my screen, which the iPad does have, and the wireless connects almost anywhere with the kindle. That said, my iPad rocks and so does my hubby, what an awesome device.
I actually haven't started The Thirteenth Tale yet, I must start my book club choice for October, Half Broke Horses, which while the other gals have said is good and a quick read, I'm procrastinating big time on it. Next month is even worse with One Thousand White Woman, yuk, the reviews on my kindle where just excoriating!
