New site lets you share your Nook ebooks – BookFriend.me

New site lets you share your Nook ebooks - BookFriend.me eBookstore I just heard about this site today on Twitter. I'm sure this isn't the only site that helps you share ebooks, but it's the first that I've heard of. While I don't have any ebooks from B&N, I do approve of the principle.

NookLend.me

Edit: They've had to change the name to Bookfriend.me

But they do have a couple curious twists on their site. The ask you to buy ebooks through them. They get a cut, of course, but I'm hoping that they are planning to work out a better account integration with B&N.  It would be nice if they could pull from B&N a list of ebooks you bought. You could go down the list and check off the ebooks you want to lend. Wouldn't that make it easier for the user?

    There’s at least one established lending site: http://www.booksfornooks.com/

    There’s also at least one FaceBook group: “I have a NOOK and I’m willing to share books!” (I’m not a FaceBooker so I can’t verify that one.)

    Hi there,

    Thanks for covering our web site (I wrote nooklend.me — recently renamed to avoid trademark issues with B&N)

    We’d l ove closer integration with B&N. Ideally they would make themselves an oauth provider (like twitter, facebook, and google are), which would let us do exactly what you describe.

    Until then users unfortunately have to double-enter data.

    We have a mobile version in the works (which will work from the NookColor). Also planning to add features to make it easier to browser available books.

    cheers

    I don’t think it works….I joined and lent out about 6 of my books today and have not gotten one book from anyone else!!! I’d be better off just buying the books I want and not lending my once chance to share my books with someone I don’t even know!!!
