Amazon allows a 2 week lending period on most Kindle books. I have a HUGE library of good books (and several crappy ones, which I won't list here) that I would be happy to loan you. Just fill out the contact form below with the titles of the books that interest you.
If the book you're interested in is in use (loaned to someone else or actively being used by ME), I will add you to the queue for that book. When available, you will get an email from Amazon.
This service is completely FREE, but donations that help the podcast, the FREE book program and other things are always welcome, as are honest reviews of my podcast.
