Kindle Compliment - Access to free books
I discovered that Kindle now allows people to "check out" books via their local libraries.
Just like going to the library, you get the book for only a certain amount of days. (In my case, I can have a book for 7, 14, or 21 days.)
I went to my local library yesterday and signed up for a "Library Card." This takes every bit of 3-5 minutes. When I left, I was able to download books from the library directly onto my Kindle for 3 weeks.
It works exactly as I was told. (I guess the book will disappear from my machine in 3 weeks.)
As if you needed a reason to get a Kindle. (Oh yes, the first reason is that you have any slight interest in *reading*. Duh.) But when you get one, one of the first things you will likely explore is how many free books you can get (there are literally millions). After these books, what can you check out from the library? Well, anything you want to.
Free books. Borrowed books. (And even books that you give as gifts.) Kindle just keeps getting better and better and stronger and stronger.
In the beginning was the Word. Then there was Kindle.
