How Renting Works
Kindle Textbook Rental is a flexible and affordable way to read textbooks. You can rent for the minimum length, typically 30 days, and save up to 80% off the print list price. If you find you need your textbook longer, you can extend your rental by as little as 1 day as many times as you want and just pay for the added days. Note that some textbooks may only be available for a fixed rental length such as 180 days if the textbook publisher has disabled the flex rental option.
