As the popularity of the Kindle Fire ebook reader grows, there may come a time when you would like to borrow or share Kindle books. Not all Kindle books are loanable — loaning options are set by the publisher. If a book is loanable, you may lend it out one time for a period of 14 days. You won’t be able to read it during that time. At the end of 14 days, the book is “automatically returned” to “your” virtual library.

Go to Amazon.com and click on “Kindle” on the left menu. Click on “Manage Your Kindle.” Scroll down to your Kindle library list.
Click on the “+” symbol next to the title you would like to loan. If the publisher has enabled loaning, you will see a button that says “Loan This Book.”
Click on the “Loan This Book” button. Enter the recipients name, email address and a short message. Click “Send Now.” Amazon.com will send an e-mail to the recipient notifying her of the loan.
If the recipient has not downloaded the book within seven days, it will be returned to you.
