    Amazon PRIME MEMBER for new KF ?????

    I just received the brand new KF from Amazon. There are something that I dont understand clearly .

    1/ How do I know , I am a Prime member for one free month.
    2/ I go to the KF Amazon book store and I saw:
    $12.00 Regular Price.
    $0.00 Prime.
    PRIME borrow for FREE

    So as an one free month Prime member. Why I need to borrow the book while I can have it for FREE. ???????

    Ah one more thing, if all the Prime member can buy some books free, then each of the Prime member can spend the first month to download to "Cloud" couple hundred books (to create his own library) . SO WHAT IS THE CATCH ???

    I just joined the forum but let me see if I can answer your question.

    Prime members get certain benefits. One of them is the Lending Library. When you see the $ reg price and $0 for Prime and Prime members borrow for free it means that because your a Prime member you can "borrow" the book I believe for up to a month. After that you won't be able to access it without buying it.

    There are 100's of books that anyone can get for free!!

    Hope I helped you a bit!

    With each new Prime membership it allows u unlimited access to streaming videos/movies. For books, u actually borrow ONE book per month. Ur free trial starts as soon as u register ur KF & u will receive an email letting u know when its about to expire. It will ask if u wanna continue as a Prime Member. So yes u can read a particular book for free w/o purchasing it if ur a member but again its one per month.
    Look at the other free books out there, there's hundreds of them & some books are actually good. No purchase, no lending necessary.

    Just want to clarify one thing regarding the lending library. Although there is a limit of one borrowed book at a time, there is NO EXPIRATION DATE. But... one must return the book before another can be borrowed and this is where the one-a-month rule applies.

    Also if you let your prime membership run out, your book will disappear.

    Also if you are a University student (like me) you can get Prime for only $39/year. It's a great deal.
