Renting Kindle books on Amazon?

Wow, this is nice, especially for expensive technical or computer books.

I have been thinking in buying "Stealing the Network: How to Own the Box" for quite a while, and have not had the chance to check on B&N. But to my surprise, I found is available for renting and for a very good price.

That's a nice deal if people hesitate in buying the book for good.

For novels, you can even read the whole stuff I guess without buying, although not sure that's a great alternative for that type of books.

Interesting, I didn't realize amazon rented books. I have a library card for alachua library in florida, for ebooks (don't have to be a resident). It includes Safari books online, which is a great free resource for technical and computer books. You may want to check it out if you do a lot of tech reading.

I searched Safari and they do have "Stealing the Network: How to Own the Box"

I think it's cause only US users can initiate a Kindle Loan.

From Lendle.me FAQ:

Requirements

Does Lendle work with non-U.S. Amazon Accounts?

Unfortunately, at this time Amazon only allows book lending for U.S. customers. As such, Lendle does not support users outside of the United States. We expect Amazon to allow lending elsewhere soon. When they do, Lendle will also make our service work for our international users.
