Prime members in the UK and Europe will soon be able to borrow a book a month, library-style. Listed as launching in ‘late October’, the Owners’ Lending Library feature will be available to Prime card-holding Kindle owners.

Over 200,000 books will be available to choose from – enough to keep you going for over 16,500 years as you can only borrow one book a month. Bookworm While the lending service is listed as ‘free’, it will set you back the price of a Kindle (starting at £69) and an Amazon Prime membership (£49 a year).

As well as the UK, the lending service is coming to France and Germany this month; the US have already been borrowing books since November 2011. The Library-service will launch at around the same time as the Kindle Paperwhite goes on sale in the UK , just announced as being available from October 25.
