I contacted customer support to find out if there was a link I could navigate to on my computer that would show all the Kindle books eligible for lending with Amazon Prime. I know I can see a list from my Kindle itself, but it's often more convenient to look for the book I'm interested in on my computer, then go to my Kindle to download it. They said that link does not exist.
I shop and browse from my computer, I read on my Kindle. I would really like to be able to look through the available books from my computer. Will this link be available in the future? Thanks.

Amazon doesn't tell anybody - even Customer Support - what features may be available in the future. Nobody here can answer your question. I will point out that there are frequent posts here still by people who tried to borrow a book via the web page and are irate to find out they were charged for it. I expect Amazon won't want to increase that confusion by putting links to KOLL books on the web and then trying to explain to people that they can use that to find their book, but not to borrow it.

For some reason, Amazon won't let me post the direct URL here. But you can find the link on this page:

Here you go
http://www.amazon.com/gp/search/ref=sr_nr_p_n_feature_browse-b_mrr_2?rh=n%3A283155%2Ck%3Akindle+books%2Cp_85%3A2470955011%2Cp_n_feature_browse-bin%3A618073011&bbn=283155&keywords=kindle+books&ie=UTF8&qid=1351375256&rnid=618072011

How to do it
For some reason, you first go to books under departments.
Then check the Prime box in the left hand column pretty far down on the page.
Then select kindle from options at the top middle.

You are left with kindle prime books. Create a wish list from this for future reading.
You should also be able to narrow down genres from here.

For instance, if you wanted a mystery you can select that in the left hand column and then sort by Avg customers reviews to get the following link.

Aren't those titles that ANY Prime member may download anytime, anywhere, any device, for free? I thought there were additional books available ONE per month, downloadable only to Kindle device, and expire after one month? The borrower's library should include even more current bestsellers. I'm on a PC so I'll have to track down my Kindle (in a different room) and check it out to see if the list is. different.

No, you are mistaken.
Amazon pays the publisher for each book borrowed through the Prime Kindle Owners Lending Library.
Prime is a shipping program with added perks.

There's that "should" word, again. Why do you feel Amazon should PAY for MORE books for you? Why aren't you happy with the FREE, GIFTED monthly book?!?

Matt says:
"expire after one month"

Kindle Owners Lending Library books never expire. The once a month limitation is when you can borrow new books. If you don't return the previous book, it will stay on your Kindle until you return it (not sure what happens if your Prime membership expires or if the book leaves the Lending Library). You do have to return it before borrowing a new book.

it says on the website that if you cancel your prime membership, the borrowed book will disappear from your Kindle
