I saw that there was 2 copies of a book from my Kindle WL.  So I submit the request to borrow one. I check my email tonight and there's an email from the lender saying "oops they already loaned their Kindle copy out so here's a Nook version and I should just download the free Nook app.". Well I already have a Nook app but I own a Kindle. I don't want to read it on my laptop.  I work on a computer all day and it hurts my eyes to read one one as well.  I can read Nook books on my Ipod Touch but it's a tiny screen.  

I emailed back that I don't want a Nook copy and I contacted Lendleme.  I don't want to get this person in trouble but I joined Lendle.me because I have a Kindle and it's a Kindle lending site.

Yeah, that doesn't sound like a good thing to do on Lendle. Kind of messes up the system.

There's a button for when you make a mistake and find out the book that used to be lendable now isn't, or you listed it wrong somehow. They should have let the site know the loan didn't happen.

They should have known better.
