Amazon to Lend Kindle Books at Your Local Library?

The title of this post? Yeah, that says it all. After years of shying away from giving users the option of “borrowing” an electronic copy of a book from a library, it seems that Amazon is finally ready to make it happen. You may recall that Barnes and Noble’s Nook has had this option since it first arrived on scene (fist-shake). While there are many reasons I own a Kindle instead of a Nook, this was always the one advantage that made the Kindle seem a bit behind the times.

Obviously there’s mirth and laughter in Kindle-ville, unfortunately, the only hint at the release date of this service is “later this year”, but that’s better than nothing, right?
