Are you using your Kindle to borrow it?

Have you already borrowed an eBook this month?

This would be my first since purchasing prime.

But you are trying to do it from your Kindle, right?

I have -video doesn't work and I don't see the "borrow for free" button. I looked at the book again - I guess it is only avail for prime as a hardback or paperback not a kindlebook. Thanks anyway.

That means it's available for Prime free shipping.

Are you looking at the book through the Book tab?

Won't work through browser

Sorry I wasn't any help. But congrats on getting Prime & of course having a Kindle. =)

Not every book is available to be borrowed through the KOLL.

I found a book that States it is free to borrow prime. Where is the borrow for free option?

Go to the book's product page (on your Fire), click on the Borrow for Free button.

As I understand it, you can't borrow the book if you're looking at the product page from the Fire's web browser. You have to use the "Books" tab to actually see the "Borrow for free" button.

Not owning a Fire, I'm gleaning this information from other posts. Fire owners, feel free to chime in here.

You glean correctly.

LOL! Thanks.

I'm also reaping what I sow...

I had to rip what I sewed so often, I gave up.
