Look on the product page, under Product Details.


Try to loan it from your MYCD page. If the option to lend the book isn't available, then it's not lendable.

The key here is that you have to do the checking here online. That I can see [fiddling with Kindle], you can't see this information on the Kindle itself.

I don't think you can lend a book using a Kindle, either (except maybe when using the browser through a Fire).

Edited for typo.

No, I don't think so, either. The loan has to be originated via browser, and completed at the other end via browser as well.

Just to clarify:

You can lend the book from

or starting from the book's Amazon product page.

An e-mail is sent to the potential borrower, who can accept the loan there.
