    Howdy folks! If you've got a Kindle you may have heard the news a couple of months ago that they now have enabled book sharing. I've got a few good books I'm willing to share if anyone wants to read 'em:

    Frugal Travel Guy Handbook
    Shantaram
    Friday Night Cocktails
    Vanish
    The Twelve Sacred Traditions of Magnificent Mothers In Law
    No Mercy

    Let me know if you'd like to borrow any. Before requesting any, please take a minute to familiarize yourself with the policy, so that others don't miss out since there's a one-time loan per title.

    Thanks!

    Great idea to open a milepoint book lending thread!

    I own a kindle for 1.5 years now and have quite some books available on it. I'll look into how lending works and if my books allow that and be back to you here.

    Is it possible to lend the (DRM-enabled) epub-books that you would buy for the Sony? I know you can borrow them from the library (a big reason for choosing the Sony) but can one person lend to another?

    Yes it can be done. Sometimes you have to convert the book into a PDF or something (my hubby does it for me ;)). There are thousands of books to share with eReader. I can ask him how he does it if you like.

    Excellent! I will pin him down and get you some links. I love the Sony and have the pocketsize which fits great in my purse. I got the cover that includes a light. I didn't need all the bells and whistles of the Kindle so am very satisfied with the eReader.

    That's the one she's getting as well (PRS-300) -- the small size, light weight and metal construction were all pluses for her, and she didn't feel the need for Internet access. :)
