How do you feel about eBooks?

We interrupt the (somewhat sparce) Book Battle coverage today to bring up one of my new favorite things to talk about: eBooks.

I'm looking to get back into doing reviews again since I've been so lax about it over the past year or so.  And in going through books I've read organizing things, I realize that several of them are eBooks.  I got a Kindle for my birthday last year, so I've been picking up cheap eBooks and freebies over the last year doing that.

For those of you who don't know, Kindle also offers a lending program, where you can loan an ebook to someone with a Kindle (or Kindle app on their table, phone, or PC) for 2 weeks.  It's like borrowing a book from the library, only you can't renew it.

So my question is, would you, my readers, be interested in a highlight of the ebooks I have to lend?  Otherwise some of them once I'm done will just get deleted, but if anyone out there might be interested in borrowing them instead, I might keep them around.

Let me know what you all think.  Perhaps a new feature will be coming to The Shady Glade soon...

I would probably prefer to buy them myself, because I might lose interest and want to pick it up later, or keep it for future reference. I do however, know a freind with an ipod toouch that uses reading apps who would be very interested, so I'll send her the link to this post :)

I just got a Kindle too. I'm still trying to figure out where to find the cheap books for it.

I think that's a great idea! I've been accumulating ebooks since last fall, especially free ones, so I have plenty to read now. In fact, I've loaned plenty but have only borrowed a few from my library. It's nice to know there are books out there that are available in case you do want to borrow though.
