Those of you who live in the U.S. or Britain and have a Prime membership on Amazon can borrow one ebook a month from the Kindle Owners’ Lending Library – that’s 12 free books a year! You can choose from more than 180,000 ebooks, including more than 100 New York Times bestsellers. And there are no due dates.
A Prime membership costs $79/year or £49/year, and it has other advantages. You’ll receive free two-day shipping on millions of items , plus unlimited streaming of more than 25,000 movies and TV shows. Read about all the Prime perks here.
