Lending and Borrowing E-Books using Lendle

Updated on October 8, 2012

Are you an avid reader? Do you have a Kindle or Kindle app filled with books? Do you desire to borrow other e-books without having to pay for the book? With a physical book, you have the ability to loan that book to anyone. As the borrower you may read the book and then return it. With Lendle, you may do just and borrow Kindle e-books in an organized community.

What is Lendle?

Lendle is a free service that allows you to take advantage of the lending feature of Kindle e-books. If an author has agreed to allow their book to be shared, owners may loan books for two weeks to another at no cost. This is where Lendle comes in. It is a website that has thousands of e-book owners who are willing to loan and share their books. In return, they may borrow books from each other. It is a great community to share reading experiences and join book clubs while having access to thousands of books.

How Does It Work?

It's easy. Just sign up at and list all the Kindle Books you own. When you loan books to others, you receive lending credits, which allows you to borrow books from others. You can also review books to receive borrow credits. A book is loaned for two-weeks. After the two-week period, the book is automatically returned to its owner. Another great bonus: when you loan books, you receive credits to earn Amazon gift cards. A win-win situation!

My Review

I love to read. I am always reading something. It took me a long time to start reading e-books. I felt I needed to feel the book and turn the pages. Once I purchased a Kindle, I have not turned back. I have Kindle apps on my iPad and iPhone in addition to my Kindle. With Kindle e-books and if you use Lendle, you will have the ability to borrow and loan books just as if you were reading a paper copy. The Lendle website has been great for me. It allows me to read books without paying the cost of purchasing. The Lendle app is fair as it forces you to loan books or complete reviews in order to have the ability to borrow books. This way you are not just borrowing books without any input into the purpose of the site. That is fair. The one disadvantage I have found is the two-week limit. You must make sure you complete the book or lose it if you don't complete it within that time frame. That is a small price to pay for the convenience and cost savings of the service.
