I got it this past January and love it. With the loaning, you can borrow one book a month that is marked for Prime Members and there is no date to when it has to be returned. You just can't borrow another one until you return that one.

Do you mean borrow? Prime has nothing to do with lending.

With Prime, if you own an actual Kindle device, there is a list of titles from which you can *borrow* 1 book each calendar month. You can keep it as long as you like, but you only get 1 borrow each month, for a max of 12 borrows per year.

Lending is a whole other issue, completely unrelated.

Prime is mainly a shipping program. Yes, you can borrow a maximum of 1 book per calendar month, but it may be cheaper to just buy 12 books with the money you would spend on Prime. If you have the Fire, then you can calculate the streaming aspect as well. It's something you have to decide based on what you are going to use it for.

Here is a good spot to look for info -

You do not need the Fire to stream Prime videos. I stream Amazon videos to my tv using Roku.

True. It should be noted, however, that the Roku is an additional $80 (or more) investment.

You can also stream to many TVs and DVD players without any additional hardware. The list of compatible devices is here:

The $50 Roku LT Roku LT Streaming Player is all most people need. Given how much content it delivers, it's a bargain.

Boy, I agree with that. Our Roku gets a workout.
