Ebook Lending Libraries roundup

I just heard on Twitter about another website that let you lend ebooks. Just for the sake of curiosity I went through my posts and gathered a list of all the ebook lending sites I've covered so far. Counting GoodReads, I'm up to 6 7-8 9. And now I'm down to 7 sites where you can exchange ebooks.

At some point in the future I plan to more in depth study of the topic.  As of now I haven't reviewed each of these sites for the simple reason that I cannot lend any ebooks.



About Nate Hoffelder (11466 Articles)
Nate Hoffelder is the founder and editor of The Digital Reader: "I've been into reading ebooks since forever, but I only got my first ereader in July 2007. Everything quickly spiraled out of control from there. Before I started this blog in January 2010 I covered ebooks, ebook readers, and digital publishing for about 2 years as a part of MobileRead Forums. It's a great community, and being a member is a joy. But I thought I could make something out of how I covered the news for MobileRead, so I started this blog."

  1. This is an interesting space to follow. Will a rental model emerge from this? Will publishers allow cross-platform lending that libraries are demanding.

    You should add http://www.ebookexchange.com and bookswim.com.

  2. I think you can add Anobii.

    I don’t read too much, but I’m interested in Anobii and Goodreads.
