I borrowed a book from a friend and I am done, how do I return it? Also, how do I get my books back that I loaned to her, I got email saying they were returned?
Thanks

To release your friend's book, go to http://www.amazon.com/myk and click on the title to release it.

If the titles of the books you lent are on your Home page but you can't access them, delete the titles and redownload them from your myk page.

I have 30 books on my kindle. I borrowed one of them. How can I tell which book is borrowed. I got so many books at one time, I don't remember which one I borrowed and I want to return it.

I have a similar problem: trying to return a book. I tried to follow the Blaiz's advice above, but when I click on the book title, I get information on the book (loan status, etc.)but no link to release it. I have a few library books out: with these, the Actions menu has a "Return Book" option, but my only choice for the loaned book is is to to delete it from my library.

Any suggestions?

David: Well, not to doubt your memory, but that doesn't sound like a loaned book, it sounds like you bought it. You might want to check your order history and see if you accidentally hit "Buy" instead of "Borrow".

Is this a book you loaned to someone else?

Thanks for the replies, Bruce and Pat. My sister-in-law loaned me the book on Feb 8th -- loan is over on Feb 22nd. I can see the book listed, with the note "borrowed" under the title.

I just got my Kindle Fire and I LOVE IT!!! I know as a Prime Member you can borrow from the lending library, but how do you borrow from a friend?

If the friend has a lendable book, he/she would go to the Manage Your Kindle page, find the title and click on the Actions dropdown. Lend this book is an option there. Click on it and follow directions. The lender would need your regular e-mail address. You will receive an e-mail with a link for you to download the book. You then have 14 days to read it. After that, it goes back to your friend, who can never lend that book again, not to you, not to anyone else.

Yes, it's a great service -- just wish I could figure out how to return it before the due date, since I finished the book already.

In reply to an earlier post on Feb 15, 2012 11:29:29 AM PST
You should be able to do that from the Manage Your Kindle page.

Thanks -- unfortunately, I cannot find a way to do this (see my earlier post). I have checked the entry for the book, Action menu, etc.

Seems like the only thing left would be to call Kindle CS.......

I lent a book to a friend and wanted to lend it to another friend, but it won't let me. Am I unable to do this?

Once you have loaned an e-book, you can never loan that book again, not to the same person, not to anyone else.

You need to go to the right drop down bar (in your digital download manager) and click delete this book from your library and it will be returned to the owners library.

I have 100+ books on my kindle. I borrowed one of them. How can I tell which book is borrowed. I got so many books at one time, I don't remember which one I borrowed and I want to return it.

I was loaned a book from a friend's kindle to my tablet's kindle and am done with it and the Kindle on my tablet won't let me delete it. How do I return it to them, because as long as it is "loaned" to me, they cannot read it...

In reply to an earlier post on Feb 23, 2014 9:12:30 AM PST
Actually it doesn't matter if you return it or not, after two weeks it is automatically returned to the lender. What the lender needs to do is delete the "on loan" notice from their Kindle so they can download the book from their library again.

I had the same problem, what you have to do is click manage your content and devices. from there you should see all the books you have ever borrowed and/or bought. Click on the three dots next to the book you would like to return (it should be to the left of the title.) After that, all you do is push return book

This doesn't seem right. I should be able to lend it to as many people as I want. Just so it's only one person at a time.

I lend out my spare Kindle.
