Joy  (joytdavid) | 3 comments I just started a new goodreads group for lending Christian fiction ebooks.

It's open to people who read their books on the Kindle or Nook e-readers and also to people who use the apps for their phones or computers.

Please come check it out!

Carrie Turansky (carrieturansky) | 2 comments Hi Joy, I wasn't sure what I thought about this at first, since I am an author and lending books means some lost sales. But it also introduces others to my writing, so I think it is a good thing for that reason. I did not know some e-books were lendable. I posted this info on my Facebook page today. Thanks for letting me know about lending e-books. My E-book, SURRENDERED HEARTS, is lendable.
Blessings,
Carrie

Joy  (joytdavid) | 3 comments Hi Carrie,

You probably all ready know this, but I'll mention it for anyone else who hasn't looked into the process yet....

The difference between loaning print books and loaning e-books is an e-book can only be loaned once for a period of 14 days. While it is on loan, the purchaser has no access to it. After the lending period it reverts back to the original purchaser and it is no longer eligible to be lent.

Thanks for posting the info on your facebook!

Judy Croome (judycroome) Thanks for this info Joy I wasn't sure what lending an ebook involved. I stopped loaning out print books because because half the time I never got them back (from otherwise entirely reliable people!) but if the ebook reverts automatically I may just start lending out again!

I'm glad it can only be loaned out once. I'm all for loaning a book to a family member or dear friend. However, if we don't actually purchase Christian fiction how can the publishing house survive, especially the small ones.

I also stopped loaning print books after a few of my favs never came back.
