Bess | 2583 comments For those of us with Kindles, here is a place where you can ask to borrow and freely lend the books you own on your Kindle. For now, it is only for Kindle, however, it may grow to include other e-readers. (No offense intended.)

You will have to get each other's email addresses. Then you go to Amazon and proceed to lend a book.

You can use this forum to request books, again Kindle versions only for now, and see if other members have the book you wish to borrow.

For instance, I want to read Pride and Prejudice by Jane Austen. Melanie says she has it and lends it to me via Amazon. I will receive an email saying, "A Loaned Book for You." Click the link and you get the book for 2 weeks. Now, while I have Melanie's book "checked out," she cannot access the book. So, make sure you aren't planning on reading the book right away prior to lending the books. We want to come across as being helpful and kind, not pushy.

The book will automatically "return" to the lender at the end of the checkout period.

For more information: https://www.amazon.com/gp/help/custom...

You can only lend one time per "eligible" book. Which is a drag but it does make sense; Amazon is a for-profit outfit!

Now, start lending and borrowing!! :D

C.E. Wilson (C_E_Wilson) | 8 comments I can lend out my copy of Baqash to anyone who will write a review on Amazon and copy it over to Goodreads. Please message me if interested.

Sarah sat at the feet of her friend Joseph. He was an old wizened man with wispy tufts of gray hair. He leaned forward in the rocking chair and whispered to her, "be prepared".

"Be prepared for what", she wondered. Sarah took off her ball-cap and ran her fingers through her chopped at red hair. Her parents were taken away from her, she and many of the faithful absconded
into this 1890’s house, and the future looked bleaker than the past.

As for the past? The world-wide earthquake took that away first. And then hail and fire destroyed hope. A burning star fell from the sky, broke upon impact, and poisoned a third of all drinkable water. What grieved her heart most was that the stars in the sky were taken away. At night you could go out and never see a single one because of the dust and ash that was cast into the heavens. When was the last
time she’d seen a clear sky?

Amidst all of this she had a dream, a dream of the man she would marry. One simple question plagued her: "How am I supposed to find him?"
