Comment: Lending library (Score 1) 276

by civilengineer (#46478081) Attached to: Amazon Hikes Prime Membership Fee
The only reason I considered prime was for the lending library which is advertised as having 500k books to borrow. Turns out you have buy a Kindle device to use the library. You cannot use the Kindle app on your phone or non-Amazon tablet for it. So, I bought a Kindle and then realized they only let you borrow one book a month. So, the whole 500k books to borrow ad is a little misleading. Cancelled my trial of Prime and returned the Kindle. Netflix has better content for online videos and we don't need the free 2-day shipping enough to justify even $79 per year.
