Some Kindle textbooks are available as rentals. You can extend your rental period or purchase a rental book at any time.
When you rent Kindle textbooks, you pay only for the amount of time you use the textbook. By renting Kindle textbooks, you can save up to 80% off the list price of the textbook.
Kindle textbooks are available on Fire tablets, Kindle e-readers, and supported Kindle reading apps, including Kindle for PC and Kindle for Mac. Kindle textbook rentals save your notes and highlights - even after the rental period is over.
Note: Some textbooks are only available for a fixed rental length.
At any point during a Kindle textbook rental, you're able to extend your rental period or purchase the Kindle textbook.
Note: You can re-rent a Kindle textbook after your rental has expired, but it will be treated as a new rental period.
To extend or purchase a Kindle textbook rental:
If you purchase a Kindle textbook, you pay only the difference between the current purchase price and what you've already paid in rental fees.
Free trials are available for select textbooks in the Kindle Store, and allow you to download the complete book to read and review for a limited time (typically three to seven days).
Free trials are currently supported on Fire tablets, Kindle for iPad, and Kindle for Android tablet. Once you start a free trial for a textbook, you can transfer or download it to any of your supported devices for the duration of the trial. Any notes or highlights you make in free trial books will be preserved beyond the free trial and will remain available to you if you subsequently purchase or rent the book.
