Borrow Kindle ebooks from your library? coming soon! #homeschool

Amazon announced today that they will make Kindle books available for borrowing through libraries later this year.

It looks like they will be working with Overdrive Media and the ebooks will work with all versions on the Kindle and Kindle apps (yay!!).

One of the nice features is that with Amazon’s WhisperNet technology users will be able to make notations and bookmarks that will remain with the borrowed ebook should a user check out the book again. How handy will that be for schooling multiple children? You’ll be able to keep notes, reading schedule, etc for subsequent children without having to think about storage.

One think to keep in mind is that there will be limited copies of ebooks available for check-out. For popular titles still expected long waiting lists.
