If you're an Amazon Prime member, you can borrow books from the Kindle Owners' Lending Library and read them on your Kindle e-reader, Fire tablet, or Fire phone.
The Kindle Owners' Lending Library is available for Amazon Prime members—paid Amazon Prime, paid Amazon Student, 30-day free trial, and customers receiving a free month of Prime benefits with a Fire tablet—who own a Kindle e-reader, Fire tablet, or Fire phone, and features hundreds of thousands of titles. Books borrowed from the Kindle Owners' Lending Library have no due dates and can be delivered to other Kindle e-readers, Fire tablets, or Fire phones registered to your Amazon account.
Note: Kindle Owners' Lending Library benefits may also be shared through Amazon Household and Family Library with select Prime memberships. Go to About Amazon Households for more information.
Prime members and adults in the same Amazon Household can borrow one book from the Kindle Owners' Lending Library each calendar month. You can deliver the book to compatible devices registered to your Amazon account. Available titles may change each calendar month.
Note: If you've already borrowed a book from the Kindle Owners' Lending Library for the current month, you'll see "Monthly limit reached" underneath the Borrow for Free button in the Kindle Store. When you’re eligible to borrow a book, you’ll see "Prime members only" underneath the Borrow for Free button.
Eligible titles display the Prime badge.
If you cancel your Amazon Prime membership or your Amazon Prime membership expires after you borrow a book, you will lose access to the book you borrowed.
Books from the Kindle Owners' Lending Library have no due dates and can be returned at any time.
Any bookmarks, notes, and highlights in the book will be saved to your Amazon account and will be available if you borrow or purchase the book later.
