Too long for loan period. I have to always wait to borrow another book until the month closes. Please shorten.

Um... we're all customers here.

And the KOLL is just a little *perk* for Amazon Prime members. They're not in business to provide you with unlimited free reading material. There are libraries for that.

Or you could use your local library and borrow books whenever you want. The Kindle Owners Lending Library is a PERK for Prime members that have Kindles. It's not the main reason to pay for Prime.

Also, Amazon pays for every book that you borrow, so what is the benefit to Amazon in letting you borrow as many books as you want in a month. As I said, it's a perk.

You get to read 12 books per year for free, get over the fact that you think you're entitled to more. That's called being greedy. What other store lets you read books for free? (keep in mind that a library is not a store)

You could buy your eBooks or if you just want free ones, the Library or I use ereaderiq for my free reads + I get to keep those.

if you have one of the K-fires, look into this app: overdrive media console. if your local library is signed up, you can use it with your library card to check out e-books and audio books. with my library, the only limitations are the same as if i were to walk in and check them out in person.
