I can't seem to find a way to search for books that are wanted by a lot of people.  I just wanted some idea of what's worth more there for when I decide to purchase ebooks. I might be willing to pay a litte more for an ebook if it's got a higher value at lendleme. Is there a way to tell when looking at a book if it's going to get a higher rebate?  Obviously a book that can be bought for .99 isn't going to get as high of a rebate as say one that costs $6.99.  But some titles would be nice. 

Also is there a way to search Amazon for lendable ebooks?  I tried and couldn't find a way to that either.

I haven't seen a way, so far. Most books that I see with a "Waiting List" button says "0".

I do think that the more expensive books get more value for lending, but I think the best you can do is find a book you want, then check to see if it's lendable, then check to see if it's got the "Waiting List" button.

Not that I've found. I see people talk about it, but no answers.
