This is the kind of significant investment in the Kindle ecosystem that we’ll continue to make on behalf of kindle owners. Over a year, borrowing the harry Potter books, plus a handful of additional titles, can alone be worth more than the $79 cost of Prime or a kindle. The Kindle Owner’s Lending Library also has an innovative feature that’s of great benefit for popular titles like harry Potter – unlimited supply of each title – you never get put on a waiting list.”
