BORROWING OPTION - HOW TO ACCESS IT
I just received a comment on not being able to see "Borrow" option on a
' Looking at the bottom of the Amazon.com Prime Kindle Owners Lending Library product page at Amazon.com, there are images at "How to borrow from your Kindle."
Mine is different in that "Kindle Owners Lending Library" doesn't show up under MENU the way it shows in the image of the Menu there. '
' It is accessible in several ways but the easiest one is to get to the Kindle Store and click on BROWSE / "See all" ...(...which I just did)
and then when I press Menu, I get the Menu they show, which has "Kindle Owners' Lending Library" option at the bottom.
When I click on that, each book has "Prime" showing at the right. For me, non Fiction is the thing but I can't choose that on this "All" (books) page.
The resulting lending list is too long to browse, at 5000+, so I chose an option in small print at the upper right, "View Subcategories" ...
Then I clicked "Biographies and Memoirs" and after getting the smaller list (only a couple of hundred), I then clicked on a book that looked interesting. That showed me a "BUY" button, an "or" and then "Borrow for Free" for 'Prime Members Only'
Clicking on "Borrow for Free" caused the book to be sent to me.
My Kindle 2 is powering up because I had not touched it for about 2 months and I'll let you know what I see on that but I won't be on my computer for another 8 hours.
Try going to Kindle Community forums and ask there what other Kindle-2 members are finding if what I detailed above doesn't work for you.
Good luck! Contrary to my expectations I see more books there of interest to me than I thought there would be and I don't have to deal with umpteen other people having it 'out' as I do with the public library ones :-)
Like Tom, I love the "no due date" aspect too as the book would be lower priority for me to read than ones I have paid for recently, in most cases - though I see one I want to read right away actually.
Maybe I'll post this as a general followup... '
Hope that helps...
Note - The above explains how to Borrow a book, only possible from the Kindle.
But remember that you can otherwise Browse Prime Lending Kindle books on the Web when you're just looking, by going to http://amzn.to/kprimebooks. Unfortunately, the Search link includes non-loanable books, which are not borrowable, but you can use the box at the right - above the listing- to choose Low to High pricing after you get your search results and that will help.
