Does Lendle have a limit on how many borrow requests you can hoard? I've done things to get more requests but it doesn't move from 10.

Maybe there's a limit from doing certain things?
I have more than 10 (I think most are from listing books for lending).

Is it actually legal to lend books in this manner, if they're not in the public domain?

The publisher has to "enable" lending for the book, so at least they think it's permitted.

I've used ebookfling and Books for Nooks.

I have over a hundred of ebookfling credits, and never bought a one because you get a credit every time you "instant fling" a book even if no one borrows it. I think I have been cycling the same 7 books for a few months now (someone eventually borrows them, but it may take a while). However, instant fling *downloads* are awesome because you know you will get them and get them right away. Their non-instant-fling loans are much more hit-or-miss. Their search features are dreadful as they do not allow filtering or sorting.

I also use Books for Nooks, which is a nook lending club, not an automated intermediary in the way ebookfling is. People post their books as available and you send a request through the site (which is tracked for acceptance and feedback, and also sent to personal emails) but lending is done on your own. There are good feedback mechanisms (you know how many books the person has borrowed, lent, and the borrower's ratings for all the loans, so you know how reliable the lender is. This works quite well, actually, and I have a much better request/loan ratio with the site--nearly perfect. They also have a forum/community aspect that ebookfling isn't trying for.

I've also done lending on goodreads. It's not a great way to track lending and make sure everything's equitable, but if you join a group for, say, a niche subgenre and people have lending shelves, it can work out well.

Yes, it's a one-time 14-day loan per book and the publisher grants rights to do it.

correct me if my brain feel out while truong to work this out. I as an australian can borrow from some sites not all and I can lend to nobody on any site.


I am not sure if that is a legal thing or what.

I was lent ebooks from friends when I brought a kindle and I lent friends things I brought. I never thought anything of it as I have always done it with the paper versions of books.

I think these lending sites are a step in the right direction, but they are still hindered by things such as the rights of the creator to control distribution.

Note: I am not advocating piracy.
