Netgalley to resume Kindle support in March

NetGalley sent out an email a few minutes ago and announced that it would soon be able to support the Kindle again. The manuscript distributor had stopped supporting the Kindle a little over a month ago due to a disagreement with Amazon.

Amazon and NetGalley have one big thing in common: we both want to deliver a first-class reading experience. As you know, we've had to temporarily disable the Kindle option for most of the titles in NetGalley. But now we have great news: Amazon has been working with us to help bring back the Kindle option for NetGalley. Your Kindle button should return in March. So thanks for your continued patience -- we appreciate your emails and tweets about how you love reading digital galleys on your Kindle.

I was working on a theory that NetGalley would use the Kindle lending feature. But then I followed up with an email and I was told that not all details have been worked out, but my contact said that NetGalley wasn't planning to use it.

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."
