I am planning on doing a longer review of Lendle next week. But I wanted to do a short introduction and review now. One of the new features this year for Amazon Kindle is sharing. Amazon is late to the sharing game, but because Amazon is the largest ebook maker and seller, they have a disproportionate effect.
Lendle is a site that connects Kindle users so that they can share books. This is a free service, the user gains credits by submitting books to a library that can be lent. These credits are then used to borrow other people’s books. So it is a balance that allows someone to both borrow and lend.
If you want to check it out, go to http://Lende.me. Unlike some of the social sites like Goodreads, the particular users is not very important. You are looking for a book.
Up front as I added books I saw several things I would like improved. 1) Entering books is not as easy as it could be. Amazon forced Lendle to remove a syncing feature that automatically entered your books into the service. That would have been a very nice feature because I have a large library. If I did not already have my lendlable books tracked it would have taken even longer. 2) I don’t see a wishlist feature. You can request books that you want to read right now. But if you want to collect books that you want to read eventually, there is not an option.
Lending is very easy. I have not borrowed a book yet, but I will before I write up a full review.
There is not a great reason to use my referral code because I have a ton of books available to lend. But there is a referral code that gives you more borrowing credits if you refer new users.
Has anyone else used Lendle? Any thoughts
