The Profitable Business of Kindle Book Lending | TeleRead | The Information Professional | Scoop.it
"Last week, Amazon announced that it was extending its controversial e-book lending scheme, the Kindle Owners’ Lending Library, to the UK. In its current state, Kindle Lending Library is a value-added service to Amazon Prime, the premium delivery service for which the e-commerce giant charges £49 a year here in the UK. It allows users to ‘borrow’ one of a selection of 200,000 Kindle e-books at a time for free each month (or for the equivalent sum of £4.08 per e-book if you don’t make use of Amazon’s delivery service that month)."
