I was wondering when Amazon was going to implement this.
http://www.wired.com/gadgetlab/2010/10/amazon-will-let-readers-lend-kindle-books-this-year/

we will be introducing lending for Kindle, a new feature that lets you loan your Kindle books to other Kindle device or Kindle app users. Each book can be lent once for a loan period of 14-days and the lender cannot read the book during the loan period. Additionally, not all e-books will be lendable - this is solely up to the publisher or rights holder, who determines which titles are enabled for lending.

Hey guys, when they say "can be lent once for 14 days" do they mean a book can only be lent once in it's lifetime? If you had 2 friends interested in the book you couldn't lend it to both at separate times? Or am I misreading that statement.

thanks

I think what they mean is that a book can be lent for a 14 day period. You can not read that book until the 14 days are done. Not sure if there is a limit on how many times you can lend the same book, I would guess there wouldn't be, but who knows
