As you have found, most Kindle books are not lending enabled. The publishers control this option. If you want to see if a book can be loaned, before you buy it, look in the Product Details area:

You just have to look at the product page, or the drop-down Action menu. If it's lendable, it'll have the "Loan this book" option.

For example: if you like Perry Mason mysteries, a look in the Product Details will show you this on The Case of the Hesitant Hostess:

walter, if you put this search into Google:

site:www.amazon.com "Kindle price" "lending: enabled"

it will work pretty well.

I assume you mean friends with Kindles. Are you in the U.S.?

Thank you Meya, so the lendable should be very few....

I'm not certain, but I think e-books are only lendable in the U.S.

Folina, I think you're right, unless some of the country-specific Amazon sites allow lending of books purchased from them.

I keep my old Kindle Basic handy for lending books. I just lend the Kindle to them.
