The following is a Plus Edition article written by and copyright by Dick Eastman.In recent comments to ebook articles in this newsletter, several people have commented, "If I have enjoyed a book, I get pleasure in passing it to a friend to read. I can't do that digitally without paying again." Actually, with Kindle and Nook ebook readers, that is incorrect. Kindle and Nook owners can legally lend books at no charge. In fact, the process is quite simple.
Kindle books can be loaned to another reader for a period of 14 days. The borrower does not even need to own a Kindle! Kindle books can be read on a second Kindle or on a Windows PC, Macintosh, iPad, iPhone, BlackBerry, and Android device by using Amazon's FREE Kindle software.
