If you are on your kindle:
Go to "shop in kindle store"
Click on "browse all categories"
Click on "Prime lending"
The entire free to prime members list should pop up. Above that list is a way to sort through genres.

I don't have my kindle next to me, so the exact quotes may be off, but you should have enough to get to the right place.

ETA: The "browse all categories" should be in the upper right of your kindle screen.

Keep in mind that those books aren't ALL FREE to Prime members. You can BORROW one book per calendar month with Prime.

Another note (unless amazon changed it in the last month or so): you can only borrow on a Kindle device apps.

You are correct Rick. I have NO idea why they did it this way? It seems much more intuitive to be able to do this on the regular Zon site; similar to all the other books you "buy". The only time I go to the kindle store, on my kindle, is when I want to borrow my monthly book. What a cumbersome method.

I guess every company has to have some little incentive to buy their hardware. This kind of makes sense, after all I can view Prime movies on a Kindle Fire but (I'm fairly sure :) I can't on an iPad. I guess Amazon is trying to keep the Prime perks on 'Zon property.

Well, yeah. But Apple is even more restrictive. You can't even read their ibooks on a MAC.

You are probably right, especially since this is a "perk" of prime membership AND having a kindle. Yep, your post explains it perfectly.

Hi. Am I allowed to mention my eBook that's available for free right now,or is that a forum no-no?

You're allowed to do it in the Meet Our Authors forum, but not here.

I am about done with Amazon. This benefit only applies to Kindle owners. I had just discovered, after receiving music albums as an Xmas gift that I was forced to install their proprietary software...just to download the already purchased albums. Don't know how long they have been doing this, but it is absolutely maddening. Shame.

Just uninstall the software after you've downloaded the albums, if you don't plan to use it again.

I haven't used iTunes in a long time, but doesn't Apple also require the use of proprietary software to download content purchased from them?

Why don't you go complain about the Nook Owner's Lending Library or the iPad Owner's Lending Library? Oh wait, neither of those exist...
