Amazon's Kindle got an amazing redesign earlier this year, and now will be receiving a much-anticipated new feature: lending. The feature, which is already available on the Barnes and Noble Nook, allows Kindle users to lend books to other Kindle users for up to 14 days. Lending the digital version of a book works similarly to lending a hard copy of a book: the book's owner will not be able to access the material during the period of time that it's lent out, and the book can only be loaned to one user at a time. Not all books will be available for lending though; publishers were able to choose whether or not to opt-in to the service.
But that's not all — see what else Amazon has up its sleeve when you read more.
Additionally, Amazon says that electronic versions of newspapers and magazines which were previously only supported on Kindle devices, will be coming to all Kindle app users, and plans to release more details (including when to expect the new app features) shortly.
