Nook users, if you can lend books, you may want to start a separate thread. This thread is for folks who want to lend and borrow books for the Kindle. Note that you do not have to own a Kindle to read Kindle books. You may instead download the free Kindle app for your PC or other compatible hardware.

Note too that not all Kindle books are lendable. The publisher makes the decision as to whether you can loan the book. The book loans for 14 days, if it is eligible. For instructions on how to lend a Kindle book, click here.

Unfortunately, only a small number of my books are lendable. The list appears below. Please contact me by PM if interested. Anyone may borrow. I will need your full name and email address. You will receive the book at the email address you provide.

I'll add more to the list as I acquire them.

I went through my historical fiction and non-fiction.  If anyone might be interested in borrowing something from a different genre (namely mystery or fantasy, especially) please send me a PM and I'll let you know what I can lend out.
