Rent Kindle Textbooks

Some Kindle textbooks are available to rent. After renting a Kindle textbook, you can extend your rental period or purchase the title prior to the rental expiration date.

After your rental period is over, you will be able to access your saved notes and highlights if you rent that title again or decide to purchase it in the future.

Extend Your Kindle Textbook Rental

If your rental has flexible rental durations, you can extend your rental period any time prior to its expiration.

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 the duration of a Kindle textbook rental:

  1. Go to Manage Your Content and Devices.
  2. Select your rented textbook and click Extend or Purchase from the Actions drop-down menu.
  3. Indicate the new end date for your rental and review the cost for the additional rental period.
  4. Follow the onscreen instructions to pay for the additional cost and extend your rental period.

Purchase Your Kindle Textbook Rental

If you purchase the Kindle textbook you’ve rented prior to its expiration, you’ll only pay the remaining difference in price between the current purchase price and what you’ve already paid in rental costs.

To purchase a Kindle textbook rental:

  1. Go to Manage Your Content and Devices.
  2. Select your rented textbook and click Extend or Purchase from the Actions drop-down menu.
  3. Select Buy now and follow the onscreen instructions to pay for the additional cost and purchase the title. You’ll see a rental credit applied to the full cost of the rented title before completing your purchase.

If your rental period has expired, you will be charged the full price of the Kindle textbook.
