In what can only be good news for all Kindle owners, Amazon has announced that they will partner with Overdrive to allow Kindle devices to borrow books from local libraries. The partnership will extend the Public Library services to Kindle owners, and enable them to borrow Kindle library books. This is a feature that’s been available with the Nooks, Sonys ereaders, and generally any ereader that lets you read ePub files. Amazon did extend the functionality by letting the library books be available across their entire Kindle platform, everything from your computer, to tablet to smart phone. The lending feature will be available later in the year, but patience is a virtue after all. Personally, I like borrowing some books from the library. It’s always good to support it. Are you Kindle owners excited for this, or are library books not your thing?
