Was looking for a library book last night and noticed that some kindle books in the library can only be borrowed using usb cable. (this is explicitly stated on the library page). This is new from last time I borrowed a book. No problem with a kindle ereader but how does this work when using a Kindle Fire?

It works the same way, you connect your Kindle Fire to your computer with a USB cable. This is a new policy by Penguin Books.

Thanks! I wonder why? Library to Kindle Fire was soooooo easy! It will be okay to use the usb cable from my old kindle?

You answered your own question, Penguin felt it was too easy and would reduce sales.

Yes, you can use the USB cable that came with your other Kindle to connect your Fire to your computer's USB port.

If you have a fire borrow the book from your library's website on the browser on the fire - it will automatically download without having to use the USB transfer. :)
