Amazon adds free book lending to Prime

Amazon today announced that Kindle owners who are also members of its Amazon Prime will be able to borrow one e-book a month for free.

Its been named the Kindle Owners’ Lending Library, and will give Prime members access to a library of thousands of titles, including over 100 former New York Times Bestsellers.

The service, first rumored back in September, is yet another perk for Amazon Prime members, who for $79-a-year also receive free two-day shipping and unlimited video streaming. It’s also another feature that Amazon offers with the Kindle that other e-reader competitors, like Barnes & Nobles’ Nook, don’t have.

Amazon says there won’t be any due dates, although you will only be able to borrow one book at a time.

This added to the new lineup of kindles should make for a great amazon christmas season.
