Why should we be forced to buy a book? I read a book once and I'm done. (for others- with the service you can always go back and re-read)

 

My husband already spends enough time on the toilet with his blasted eBook reader, I speak for disgruntle wives everywhere when I say, "hmmmmmm, no sir, I don't like it".

 

When I looked up "Ninjas" in Thesaurus.com, it said "Ninja's can't be found" Well played Ninjas, well played.

So Steve Jobs was right when he asked his staff back in 2003:

 

"What are tablets good for besides surfing the Web on the toilet?"

Btw, to the other poster, there are such book agreements for technical libraries.  Pretty costly though.

 

I thought Amazon Prime had free book rentals, btw.  At least for some books.  Am I misremembering?

Amazon has about 5,000 titles for rent, but only on actual Kindle devices, not the app. And no titles from the 6 main publishers.
