The Amazon Library Lending program now offers rentable Kindle e-books from local literature sanctuaries.

Amazon's e-book reading hardware dubbed the Kindle has been picking up a lot of steam in the last few years thanks to the digital movement. E-book readers have gained attention among the young and old alike, allowing people to take a few thousand e-books with them at any given time on a device that weighs less than your average high school student textbook.

With the Amazon Library Lending program, when you borrow a Kindle public library book, you'll have access to all the unique features of Kindle books, including real page numbers and Whispersync technology that synchronizes your notes, highlights, and last page read. After a public library book expires, if you check it out again or choose to purchase it from the Kindle store, all of your annotations and bookmarks will be preserved.

With so much free content available, I would not be surprised if they eventually slide into school systems as a staple, saving children everywhere from the shoulder and back pains of our past. The e-book craze is sweeping the nation, and now is a better time than any to own a Kindle.
