Amazon Kindle on the App StoreGrowing up just before video games gained the stature they have now, reading books was my ultimate pastime as a kid. In an ordinary world, they were like passports to a whole new world filled with adventure, mystery, and learning. Then again, I could only buy a certain number of books given my limited budget as a child. Given my unquenchable thirst for material to read, this made my fellow bookworms and the public library an excellent resource for extending my reading pleasure via good, old borrowing. With the addition of ebooks to the mix, borrowing also now entails digital options that further widen your reading universe.

How to return a Kindle Book borrowed from your library
You can check out Kindle books through the website of your local library and have them sent directly to your Fire tablet, Kindle device, or Kindle reading app. Kindle books that you borrow from a public library are available to you for a specific period of time, just like with physical library books. Public library books for Kindle are available at libraries throughout the United States. These books are offered through a digital service called OverDrive. Note: Public Library books for Kindle are available in the Kindle format. Restrictions: Availability of books and length of loan will vary by library. Public library books require an active Wi-Fi connection for delivering books to a Kindle e-reader.
Kindle Owners' Lending Library is available for Amazon Prime members—paid Amazon Prime, paid Amazon Prime Student, day free trial, and customers receiving a free month of Prime benefits with a Fire tablet—who own a Kindle e-reader, Fire tablet, or Fire phone, and features hundreds of thousands of titles. Books borrowed from the Kindle Owners' Lending Library have no due dates and can be downloaded from the Cloud on other Kindle e-readers, Fire tablets, and Fire phones registered to the same Amazon account. Prime members can borrow one book from Kindle Owners' Lending Library each calendar month. You can download the book to compatible devices registered to the same Amazon account or to the account of adults in the same Amazon Household. Available titles may change each calendar month. Note: If you've already borrowed a book from Kindle Owners' Lending Library for the current month, you see "Monthly limit reached" underneath the Read for Free button in the Kindle Store.
Prime Reading is a benefit included with every Amazon Prime subscription that provides access to free eBooks. If you have an Amazon Prime membership, and you install the Kindle app on your phone or computer, you can use Prime Reading. There's only one way to get Prime Reading, and it's pretty simple: sign up for Amazon Prime. Although it started as a way for Amazon customers to get free two-day shipping on their purchases, Prime has evolved into a multi-benefit subscription that includes access to movies and television shows , music , release-day delivery of new video games, and more. Like most other Amazon Prime benefits, Prime Reading is included with every subscription at no additional cost. That means you can use Prime Reading with any device that has the Kindle app installed on it. The best way to see if your device will work with Prime Reading is to search its app store for the Prime Reading app.
