One time, for 14 days IF the publisher allows it.

You didn't look very hard then, the very first paragraph on the Lending help page says 1 time:

"Lending Kindle Books
Kindle books can be loaned to another reader for a period of 14 days. The borrower does not need to own a Kindle -- Kindle books can also be read using our free Kindle reading applications for PC, Mac, iPad, iPhone, BlackBerry, and Android devices. Not all books are lendable -- it is up to the publisher or rights holder to determine which titles are eligible for lending. The lender will not be able to read the book during the loan period. Books can only be loaned once, and subscription content is not currently available for lending."

Thanks for posting the answer to my question. I must not have looked very hard, but didn't need to be called out on it either ;)

I assume this means you can loan it ONLY one time...ever. Correct? It would be nice if you could loan it to multiple friends, only one time to each person. I've loaned my real books to multiple people over would be nice if I could do the same with the e-books. One reason I prefer still buying real books...

The way to duplicate that with a Kindle book is to buy one of the Basic model Kindles, and use it to loan to friends. Just like a book, you hand them the Kindle. Only one person can be using it at a time, and when they are done, you pass it on to someone else.

That's actually not a terrible idea...:-)

Thank you. I was thinking the same thing. So rude.

So you think an almost 3 year old post is rude? Cool
