Kindle Library Lending Announcement Raises Questions
by Theresa Cramer
Something has long been missing from the electronic shelves at libraries. While users could check out ebooks for a number of e-readers, including Barnes & Noble's Nook, Kindle editions have been conspicuously absent. Until Amazon announced a partnership with OverDrive on April 20, users of one of the most popular ereaders on the market have been left out in the ebook lending cold. Kindle Library Lending, which will launch later this year, will allow Kindle customers to borrow Kindle books from more than 11,000 libraries in the U.S.

Book Recommendation Services
by Paula J. Hane
My family and friends have long been valued sources of recommendations for that next good read. We eagerly trade paperbacks, and we don't get bent out of shape if our preferences don't always match someone's recommendations. Amazon's recommendations have proven helpful to me over the years (Customers who bought this also …), and sometimes it highlights items I might not have thought of checking. But with the increased interest in ebooks and the phenomenal sales of e-readers, it's worth knowing about some other very helpful sources for book recommendations. There's a growing number of them popping up, and I was quite surprised to find so many when I started digging. Each has its own special strengths, so you might want to check out several.

The Carousel Carver The Carousel Carver
by Perdita Buchan

This evocative historical novel tells the story of Giacinto, who emigrates from Italy in 1912 and becomes a carousel carver during the golden age of the craft in America, and Rosa, the eight-year-old orphan girl thrust into his care.

The Carousel Carver vividly recreates the world of the immigrant carvers—from the inspiration found in fiery horses, big cats, and children's laughter to the clatter, sawdust, and politics of Philadelphia's bustling multicultural workshops. This is an engaging and insightful tale of tolerance, second chances, and what it means for those once adrift to call America home.
