OverDrive might be having trouble getting permission from Canadian publishers to allow Kindle lending? Since they started with Canadian publishers later than US perhaps the contracts are more restrictive?

As you say Amazon hasn't built the accompanying digital media availability in other markets yet. The way they market the Fire I'd think they need to get that in place first? Not sure why their app store isn't international.

You can get it on the UK, DE, FR, IT and ES sites.



It does seem strange that they don't have a separate Canadian Kindle store yet. I can't believe that they've given up on the market, but maybe that's coming. They seem to like to do it one site at a time and perhaps they felt there was more room for growth in the other markets?
