Kindle To Enable Lending Soon

Interesting. You will be able to lend or read loaned books on your Kindle soon. With lots of restrictions for sure, but a welcome step nonetheless. This also introduces a way for Amazon to build more knowledge about its customers, specifically around their social networks. From the Kindle Community, Coming Soon for Kindle - kindle Discussion Forum 

"...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. "
