Most of the kindle books I have are freebies anyway so it's kinda pointless to lend them. Even to Deb...devil

Absolutely -- especially when that multimillion dollar contract comes through!

Letty - I have no problem lending anything on my Kindle to someone from this forum. My problem, however, is that without going through all of my books, I don't know which of them are lendable. Suggestion: if anyone is interested in a particular book, ask about it here and if we have it and want to lend it, we respond. How's that?

That would work,  On the Nook the books that are lendable have  a (lendme) icon.

I was thinking that I would just list the ones that are lendable and then strike them out or delete them as they are ordered.  I have realized that the lend me feature on some books have an expiration date of sorts.  Some of the first ones I bought were lendable then all the sudden they weren't.  So it was a lost opportunity.

(edit spelling)

I'll be your Nook friend, Letty, but I'll have to figure out how to set up for that in Nook.  Haven't looked into it yet.  I'll probably buy a few lendable HF & HR from time to time, but most of my books so far are freebies and super cheap classic groups.

Jeanne, go you your Amazon digital orders and then click on your kindle orders. You'll see them all listed and at the right hand side of each there's a spot to click with options like Deliver to my./Delete from library, etc. If the book is loanable you'll see that option there. I clicked on one to see what would happen and a new screen opens up with instructions to send, etc.

ETA, the very dire Lord Protector (an alternate history of the princes in the tower) and the very very funny Daisy and the Bear by KL Clark appear to be lendable on kindle. Ricardians with a sense of humor should try the latter book. The former, just for laughs although the humor is unintentional.

Oh Cathy, I know about that feature but I was trying to avoid going through all my books/orders. Thanks for the suggestion - maybe I'm too lazy or maybe I don't want to see all the books that I have yet to read!!! crying

Sharla YAY!  I have a lot of freebies as well but some time you miss getting them.  

Ruth Downies Medicus series is lendable. 

This Time by Joan Szechtman,  this is the book that Richard III is snatch through time a the very moment before his death.  Not my usual fare but Susan Higgenbotham and SKP were talking about it and I thought why not.  It was a quick read and had it's moments.

Bound by the Heart Marsh Canham A Priate Romance (On Hold for Sharla)

Maids of Misfortune (A mystery set in San Fransisco during the gilded age by M Louisa Locke

The Long Hard Ride by Lorelie James (cowboy smut).  ( I heard people talking about her books and had to see for myself)

The Hanover Square Affair by Ashley Gardner/Jennifer Ashley  Regency mystery  series

Alinor and Roselynde by Roberta Gellis

Fool Again by Eloisa James  Romance Regency?

Still Life With Murder, A Bucket of Ashes, Murder In the North End, Murder on Good Friday, Death on Becon Hill and Murder in a Mill Town by PB Ryan Post Civil war Boston Mystery series.  I really liked this series.

Broken WIng by Judith James  Lent to Sharla!

Some of mine which supposedly are available for lending and most of which I haven't read yet are:

Medicus and Terra Incognita - Ruth Downie

The Wolf's Sun  - Karen Charbonneau

Mister Slaughter - Robert McCammon

Regimental Murder, Hanover Square Affair, Glass House, Sudbury School Murders, Body in Berkley Square - Ashley Gardner

Sweet Smell of Decay - Paul Lawrence

Oh and Cathy - I haven't read them, but if you ever want to check one or more of them out, I have those books on Montfort by Ashe.

I wonder if you can lend from kindle to Nook does any one know?  Christa if we can then certainly you can borrow it.  Sharla and I are both Nook users.

Letty - I don't believe you can loan between Nook and Kindle. When I checked, these were the acceptable non-Kindle devices that you can loan to:

iPhone, Windows PC, Mac, Blackberry, iPad, Android, and Windows Phone 7.

Christa - I have the second one in the Medicus series if you want to borrow it, but I don't have # 3 and #4.

 

 

Cathy - I didn't THINK you would be interested! lol!

I received Letty's book and I think I successfully sent her Mark of the Horse Lord by Sutcliff.

And no you can't lend between Nook and Kindle.  They have different DRM.

Any other Nook readers want to join the exchange? It's easy.  You just need a name and the e-mail you use on B&N with your Nook.  Create a contact for that person, and you can lend them the lendables.

I'll list my lendables when I get a chance.
