I bought a few books a while ago and I tried to loan them to someone, but it doesn't give me and option to loan them. Most of my books I have received from Pixel of Ink, but others I have paid for and I can lend them to people because it gives me the option, but not the recent books I have bought.

Lending is up to the publisher. On the product page of the books it will tell you if lending is enabled. The top publishers do not allow it.

The copyright holder has the only say as far as lendability.

The publisher of the book decides if a book is lendable or not.

The publisher determines which of their books will be loanable. You can see this information on the product description page under Product Details.
